Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Awareness Month

What is polycystic ovary syndrome?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects how the ovaries work. It’s not clear exactly what causes PCOS, but it’s thought to be linked to hormone problems. PCOS is a common condition which the NHS believe affects 1 in every 10 women in the UK. Although a high number of women have the condition not much awareness has been raised, leaving those who have PCOS feeling underrepresented.

This awareness day we’d like to help put a stop to that and raise awareness for all those affected by PCOS by offering one small area (any facial area) of laser hair removal for FREE!


How common is polycystic ovary syndrome?

Those with PCOS usually report signs becoming apparent during late teens or early 20s, however women can often go undiagnosed. One study in particular found 70% of women who have PCOS hadn’t been diagnosed.


Symptoms can include:

  • Irregular periods or no periods at all
  • Excess androgen – high level of “male” hormones in your body, which may cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair
  • Acne
  • Fluctuations in weight

If you feel you match the above symptoms, then we recommend you book in to see your GP as they’ll be able to help with diagnosing.
