Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), also called polycystic ovary syndrome, is a common hormonal disorder, affecting 5 to 10 percent of women. Women with PCOS can experience a range of symptoms, including irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, elevated levels of male hormones and difficulty achieving pregnancy. PCOS can lead to an increased risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and pre-cancerous and cancerous changes to the lining of the uterus.
The Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center offers comprehensive, personalized care to help you manage your PCOS symptoms. Our care team also offers health screenings for women with PCOS to reduce your risk of developing other health problems.
Some women with PCOS may need help managing their weight. The Vanderbilt Center for Weight Loss is hosting a seminar series who may not be candidates for surgery. The goal is to help these women live a healthier lifestyle.
All seminars take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
