PCOS Awareness Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advocacy of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). The organization and its volunteers are dedicated to raising the awareness of this disorder worldwide, providing educational and support services to help women understand what the disorder is and how it can be treated. The Association also provides support for women diagnosed with PCOS to help them overcome the syndrome and decrease the impact of its associated health problems.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the advocacy of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) that occurs in over 10,000,000 women worldwide.
Public awareness of PCOS is necessary because over half of the 10,000,000 women that have it, are unaware of it.
Awareness helps the public understand that symptoms like irregular periods and pelvic pain are not something to be ignored and getting it checked is necessary. While there is no cure for PCOS, there are treatments that can help ease the stress and complications of specific symptoms. The more people that are informed of PCOS the better chances for early diagnosis.
Prepare and assist women with the necessary information and resources needed to get tested.
Communicate information to the public and to women diagnosed with PCOS.
Assist women diagnosed with PCOS to overcome their symptoms and lessen related health risks.
Provide a support network to freely and openly discuss all aspects of PCOS.
