Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and breaking stereotypes – it’s not a ‘girl thing’

September marked Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome awareness month. It went by hardly noticed, even though it affects as many as 15-20% of women in their childbearing years. It is also linked to 40% of female infertility cases in SA. The numbers could very well be much higher than documented because many women go undiagnosed, bearing the symptoms in silence. In this piece I recount my own journey with PCOS in the hope that it would break the stereotypes and taboos around female reproductive health.
