Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a prevalent and complex health issue among women but has really been a mystery disease.  Affecting between 6 – 10% of women, it is considered one of the most common endocrine disorders among women – yet about half are undiagnosed.  It affects so many areas of a woman’s life, including being the leading cause of infertility.   Clearly PCOS needs all the attention it can get!    

Here are some of my favorite PCOS websites:

PCOS Challenge – Sasha is one amazing woman – she’s creating so much awareness for PCOS by starting a 501c3 non-profit organization and has created a PCOS Symposium,  Blog, Radio show, PCOS television series, forum and e-zine!

PCOS Diva – Amy is truly an inspiration and helps tons of women with her PCOS programs! 

Soul Cysters – great place to connect with other women who have PCOS

PCOS Foundation – comprehensive site with lots of great information and PCOS Symposium held in Texas

PCOS Nutrition – great site with lots of nutritional information and access to nutrition counselling which you can book online

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Association – lots of information on PCOS to be found here

PCOS Awareness Association – Another amazing initiative to raise awareness and provide tons of great information to women with polycystic ovarian syndrome

Dr. Fiona, ND – A naturopathic doctor and woman with PCOS, Dr. Fiona takes an integrative approach to PCOS – her site has some great articles. 

Androgen Excess and PCOS Society – an international organization that promotes research and knowledge of androgen excess disorders – you can become a member of the society. 


Let me know if you have other sites that you could recommend – I’d love to share and help spread awareness.
