A great addition to the PCOS literature out there covering all the old ground but also adding in new and extremely helpful information about diet and self help techniques. It's beautifully written and clear and consistent throughout. As a PCOS sufferer myself I highly recommend it to other women with PCOS. Good to know that at long last this complex condition is being taken seriously and given the attention and respect it deserves.

This book is the first to embrace the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit for women with PCOS. It offers hope and help and suggests that being diagnosed with PCOS can in many cases be a good thing. PCOS offers a rare opportunity to see the future and change it through lifestyle changes and complementary therapies and medicines if needed. Looking through the window of PCOS this book offers an abundance of hope, knowing that the symptoms of today can be managed and complications of tomorrow, such as diabetes, heart disease, infertility, can be prevented. A solid performer I'd recommend this book to any women with PCOS.

When I finished reading What to Do When the Doctor Says It's PCOS I felt much more informed about PCOS, what it means to have PCOS, the symptoms of PCOS, and what I can do to help the symptoms of PCOS, including weight gain. It helped me understand what is wrong with my body and I even learned a bit about how my thyroid interacts with my PCOS. I also learned that many people with PCOS can go on to become diabetic and what I can do to avoid this happening to me. I give this 5 stars because it is well written, laid out nicely, and very informative.

I was diagnosed with PCOS about 4 weeks ago after dealing with the awful symptoms for 9 years. I immediatly bought this book and loved it. It explains everything you need to know about PCOS; symptoms, treatments, and much more, if you have PCOS and feel the need to know everything there is to know about your condition you have to have this book.

I recommend this book for anyone who wants to know more about this condition. It explains what the disease is, how to treat it, and what all those tests your doctor ordered mean. There are also chapters about non-medical treatment options, like diet and exercise to control weight and sugar cravings. It is especially helpful to share this book with well meaning but clueless family and friends who advise fad diets as a quick fix.

I sure didn't know what to read when I was diagnosed. There are a wealth of articles online if you do some basic researching. But I wanted hard copies of information. You know, stuff I could dog ear and highlight. :) This is one of the better books, so I recommend it. Especially if you're new to the idea of PCOS and don't know where to start. Good luck, ladies.

I wish I had this book when I was first diagnosed with PCOS. This book introduces many different aspects of PCOS evaluation and treatment options in language that the patient can understand.
