PCOS stories

As many as one in four women around the world suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) although the fact it’s often misdiagnosed or even goes undiagnosed means numbers are probably even higher.

The name – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome – refers to the multiple, mini “cysts” which form on the ovaries of some women who suffer from the condition. These cysts are actually egg sacks or follicles and instead of growing and releasing an egg through ovulation as they normally would, they stall, instead releasing relatively higher male hormones into the blood, causing a range of health problems.

A number of our patients and former patients who've experienced infertility due to endometriosis have kindly agreed to share their stories with you. Read on to learn more about their journeys.
