PCOS Awareness Month will take place from 1 to 30 September. During this time, there will be a number of activities at the federal level aimed at helping women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome. We are delighted to be part of this event and our main objective is PCOS period pain relief.
What is polycystic ovary syndrome: essence and manifestations
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a clinical syndrome characterised by moderate obesity, irregular menstruation or amenorrhoea and signs of androgen excess (e.g. hirsutism, acne). Most patients have multiple ovarian cysts. The diagnosis is made on the basis of pregnancy test results, measurement of hormone levels and imaging studies to rule out a virilising tumour. Treatment is symptomatic.
Symptoms and signs of PCOS
What does PCOS pain feel like? – is one of the most common questions asked by women affected by the syndrome. The pain of PCOS is similar to that of menstrual pain, but it feels much sharper and greater. If you experience intolerable pain during your period, you should see your doctor, as this is the first sign of polycystic ovary syndrome. Pain when ovulating PCOS is also one of the syndromes of the disease.
Among the equally common symptoms of PCOS are the following:
Wounded axillary hairiness;
- Body odour
- Irregular menstruation

- Headaches, depression
Why PCOS awareness is important
PCOS awareness is necessary in today's world, as the disease often does not show itself in its initial stages. But this is when it is easiest to deal with, which can help avoid a number of unpleasant symptoms and consequences.
