Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 12-18% of women of reproductive age and up to 21% in some high-risk groups, such as Indigenous women.  The hormonal syndrome can cause depression, weight gain, Type 2 Diabetes, hair loss, infertility and acne.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association of Australia (POSAA) are partnering with researchers and health professionals around the country and across the world to highlight the need for more research into PCOS. Now there is little to no funding to improve understanding into the causes and treatments in PCOS despite the fact that is affects 13% of Australian women.

Many of  you have been involved before in supporting the need for a guideline to help us and our Doctors better manage PCOS. Now we are asking you to provide your support and voice in a proposal to our government to increase research support in PCOS. Please sign up here to support this proposal and share far and wide.
