New for 2017! A new book for women with PCOS (and doctors too….)

In the 198 pages of this book, Gerard Conway shares the medical information about polycystic ovary syndrome that was previously only available to doctors. Part self-help manual, part home reference, this book covers every thing from the historical background to PCOS to the current thinking about lifestyle and drug treatments. Unlike many books intended for women with PCOS, this book is based on over 20 years of clinical experience using illustrations developed over many outpatient clinic discussions.
