What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome with Dr Anupriya Agarwal
14 September @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Did you know that September is polycystic ovarian syndrome month? To raise awareness about this silent but extremely painful syndrome, we’ve asked one of Singapore’s leading experts to tell us more about it and to highlight the problem so we can spread the word and help others who are suffering from period pains.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome – or PCOS – is a common hormonal condition affecting 10% of all women. It can present not only with a variety of menstrual issues and aesthetic problems in young girls, but also lead to long-term serious health problems like endometrial cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Irregular periods, acne, facial hair growth, weight gain and fertility problems can all be symptoms of the syndrome.
This talk will help you understand the genetic basis of PCOS, its health implications as well as the treatment options at various ages, from teenage girls to women seeking fertility and those in the menopausal phase.
Date: Wednesday, 14 September
