Published Date – September 2022

This book will take you through Phia’s journey to fertility with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

PCOS affects approximately between 5% to 10% of women globally, and fewer than 50% of the affected are diagnosed. Many women who have symptoms but do not know what is happening to them.

This book seeks to shed light on what you can consider when coping with your PCOS challenge.

‘Is PCOS curable?’ The answer remains ‘no’. However, symptoms can be managed. Symptoms vary from one person to another, so it is imperative to have an individualised symptom management plan.

This memoir will take you through Phia’s memories, from adolescence to adulthood, to the realisation of the fundamental causes of PCOS as well as the starting point of her PCOS encounter.

If one perceives the root cause, it is easy to deal with the challenge.
