Join Dr. Laura Cooney for a free talk to learn the causes, diagnosis and treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).


PCOS is a hormonal disorder common among women between the ages of 15-45. Women of all races and ethnicities can be at risk and you might have symptoms for a long time before it is accurately diagnosed.


Many symptoms result from imbalances in hormones that occur naturally in the body and include:

  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Excessive hair growth
  • Cystic acne

Left untreated, PCOS can lead to:

  • Higher risk of infertility
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes and heart disease
  • Endometrial cancer
