Wellbeing creates awareness leaflet on ovary condition

Wellbeing and Boots have teamed up to educate women about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

A six-page leaflet has been produced by Wellbeing, the health research charity for women and babies, to promote awareness of PCOS, with support from Boots.

According to the charity, one in four women have PCOS at sometime during their lives, yet it is not known why the condition occurs. PCOS may be present in children, but it usually only becomes evident after puberty.

The leaflet can be downloaded from the web site, www.wellbeing.org.uk, and informs women about the symptoms of PCOS including irregular periods, infertility, acne and excessive weight gain. It includes advice from the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists.
