Diagnosed with PCOS


Four years ago, Shadi, 30, began experiencing unexplained hormonal changes, such as weight gain, acne, male-pattern hair loss and abnormal menstrual cycles. An ultrasound was performed and she was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). As a result, Shadi was prescribed a variety of hormone medications, and is concerned about the potential effects they have on her fertility.
