EP 150: P*SS OFF PCOS
To mark PCOS awareness month, here’s a montage of several episodes from the numerous PCOS experts I have spoken to :
I’ve been watching Kym Campbell for some time now.. .how strange does that sound. Her presence has been growing and growing online and her awesome content just keeps coming, so I was really chuffed when we got a time in the diary to speak.
Kym talked about her life dealing with PCOS and how it affected her, from acne medication to anti-depressants, it took until Kym was in her 30’s to actually get help and support that made a difference. Hear the full episode here
Amy Medling is on a mission to make sure her 9 year old daughter makes good choices with her food and understands that it is a form of nourishment. Amy’s mother and Grandmother had PCOS as does her sister so she has a lifetime of experience living with it and managing it. Hear my full chat with Amy here
ADAM BALEN AND KATE DAVIES
Professor Adam Balen is a full time Consultant in Reproductive Medicine at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. For many years Adam has had a particular interest in the causes and management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
His experience covers the full spectrum of the condition including; its effects during adolescence and adult life on the menstrual cycle, fertility, body weight, cosmetic effects, as well as the issues that PCOS may have on the quality of life and long-term health.
I also spoke with Kate Davies, who has spoken on my podcast before about her work with OvuSense and her own practice called Your Fertility journey. Kate shares how she works with women dealing with PCOS, especially those who are struggling to lose weight. You can hear this full episode here
