PCOS stands for polycystic ovarian syndrome. It’s an incurable hormonal disease that affects approximately 3 out of every 10 women, causing havoc across all areas of physical and emotional health.
I was first diagnosed with PCOS in my early 20’s, and the thing that I hate most about PCOS is that it strips away everything that society says makes a woman a woman. For example, women with PCOS are more likely to suffer from infertility, as well as have a whole host of issues resulting from hormones that are totally out of whack: lack of a regular menstrual cycle, frequent miscarriages, failure to breast feed (if she does manage to get pregnant), rapid weight gain, inability to lose weight, male-pattern baldness, hirsutism, anxiety and depression. The list goes on and on.
Each Friday, I will share a blog post about PCOS. I’m not a doctor or nurse or anyone with medical training. I may point to websites that offer information regarding health concerns for women with PCOS. However, the main point of my posts will be to encourage my fellow “cysters” to find their feminine identity in God in spite of PCOS. Please scroll below to find all the PCOS encouragement I’ve shared so far.

Like what you see so far? Great!
I need your help. Please share my PCOS blog posts on social media so that other women with PCOS are able to find encouragement too. Also, I’m writing a book for women with PCOS called A String of Pearls. It should be available sometime in 2020. Please help me spread the word.
