September is PCOS Awareness Month

By Christine Dezarn, Founder, PCOS Association (PCOSA)

Almost 7 million women in the U.S. alone have PCOS and less than half know they have the syndrome. Public information and awareness of the symptoms and the serious nature of the disorder are crucial to identifying women in need of treatment.

September is National PCOS Awareness Month and we invite you to think about how you can become an advocate for PCOS awareness this month and into the future.

As difficult as it may be for many of us to talk about PCOS, I ask you to join other PCOSA members,  women with PCOS and their friends and become involved to make a difference. You could potentially help someone who is unaware that they have the syndrome. Just think how wide PCOS awareness could spread if we all took action.

We ask you to share your knowledge of PCOS with others. Our goal is to foster knowledge and sensitivity to those with the condition. Have you ever told someone about PCOS who has never heard of the syndrome before? Was their reaction shock, disbelief or confusion as to why they had never heard of this before, since it is so common?

Perhaps you have a mother, daughter, sister, or female friend who is overweight and honestly not sure why. Perhaps a female friend suffers from excess facial hair, but mistakenly assumes this is only a cosmetic problem. Tell them they can start by taking the quiz at http://www.pcosupport/quiz.php which will help them to evaluate their risks and will guide them toward “next steps” in seeking help from a doctor. Help spread the word about PCOS. You never know who may learn from us and in turn, get the help they need.

As you work toward your healthy summer achievements, think about what you can do to make sure that your overall health is your focus throughout the year. Awareness of PCOS is not about identifying with a disease, it’s about recognizing the advantages to healthy living, and the impact that has to your quality of life and to your longevity.

PCOSA is now accepting donations for our PCOS Awareness Auction, to be held during the month of September. Do you have an item to donate? Can you solicit something from a local business or friend? We are looking for hotel certificates, restaurant gift certificates, spa services, handmade items, gift baskets, theme park tickets…you name it! Please contact Andrea at pcosa.auction@gmail.com for more information about donating an item or items.
