Top Books on PCOS

I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) back in January. Though it has been tough, I have found some great books to learn more about PCOS and how to cope with it. I'd like to share my top picks for PCOS books:

  1. Positive Options for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): Self-Help and Treatment by Christine Craggs-Hinton and Adam Balen - This is a wonderful book that lays out all the options for dealing with PCOS. My favorite chapters discuss "complementary therapies" and natural therapies.
  2. PCOS and Your Fertility by Colette Harris and Theresa Cheung - If you are looking to get pregnant and have PCOS, this is the book for you! This book gives tons of great information for increasing your fertility and getting pregnant. It even talks about what to do once you are pregnant, since there is a higher risk of miscarriage for women with PCOS.
  3. The New Glucose Revolution Guide to Living Well with PCOS by Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller and Nadir Farid - As a woman with PCOS, I understand how hard it is to lose weight. This "diet" book is a great option to help you lose weight and change your eating habits.
There are plenty of other books about PCOS and managing your symptoms. These are just a few that I own and absolutely love!

PCOS, the Hidden Epidemic

The fundamental problem with PCOS is anovulation and not making progesterone for two weeks every cycle.

This lack of progesterone leads to hormonal imbalance in the ovary, causes the ovary to produce testosterone and leads to the irregular menstrual cycles and infertility. This is aggravated by obesity and insulin resistance.

Progesterone is missing, therefore replacing it makes sense.
