Getting Diagnosed

What is PCOS?

PCOS is an endocrine disorder where, essentially, the hormonal signals sent from our brain get out of balance. We’re not exactly sure what causes PCOS, but we do know that there are strong ties to those with diabetes in their family history. Because of this, there are serious long term health risks that should be addressed.

PCOS affects 1 in 10 women in a variety of ways. Symptoms vary so much that you and a friend could both have PCOS and have completely different symptoms, all related to PCOS. There is no cure for PCOS, but there is care and support, with Becky and CROWN Coaching Programs and CROWN PCOS Friendly Meal Plans.

Get Diagnosed

Getting an official diagnosis for PCOS can be especially difficult for a few reasons. First, many doctors are not properly trained to recognize the big picture of what PCOS looks like. Second, there is debate in the medical community on which tests to use to get a diagnosis. Finally, finding a doctor who will take your PCOS health seriously is often a challenge. With this in mind, it’s important to remember that you must be your advocate. Don’t give up until you find a doctor who is willing to listen.

If your OBGYN is willing and able to test you for PCOS, there is no need to find a reproductive endocronologist (RE) who will. Often times, your OBGYN will send you to a RE anyways.

Becky specializes in treating PCOS with all natural alternatives. If you need help getting diagnosed or in dealing with your PCOS symptoms, schedule a ‘Getting To Know You’ session with me to receive your ‘Getting a Diagnosis’ Doctor’s Guide. This guide will help you to understand what information to provide your doctor with as well as a listing of tests to ask for and proper levels to compare them to.
