Cover image for lecture: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Lecture Overview

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) doesn't just present as irregular menstrual cycles, polycystic ovaries and an increase in male characteristics; there are 3 different phenotypes of this condition. This straightforward and informative talk discusses the revised criteria for diagnosing PCOS and how cysts are not actually developed as part of this condition.

This presentation, even though I'm aware it is not shown in it's entirety, was way too brief and is demonstrative of how people with PCOS are regarded by the medical profession. The information given is extremely outdated even though it's only from 2016. To paraphrase just a few points... "Just lose weight", "The thin woman with PCOS who doesn't experience a period is fine", "The pill is the best treatment and regulates periods". I was hoping to learn some new information, but unfortunately it contains no real information at all and assumes that the only reason to treat PCOS is to conceive.
