PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome is not simply a disease of the ovaries. The ovaries are one part of this complex hormonal syndrome which CAN include symptoms such as excess body hair, increased weight, acne and insulin resistance. Or just to trick us, no obvious symptoms until you start to trying to get pregnant.

The focus then becomes the ovaries. This is because for some women with PCOS they are anovulatory meaning they don’t ovulate BUT this doesn’t mean PCOS = infertility, it just means you may need some help putting the extra ingredient in to your baby making mix.

In this episode we cover:

  • What is PCOS
  • What are likely symptoms
  • Is it painful?
  • How it gets diagnosed
  • What are some of the treatments available
  • What healthcare professionals you may need
  • What happens if you are not ovulating
  • What is lean PCOS


Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.

We invite you to be our part of our family over on Instagram @grow_my_baby or do our free pregnancy quiz at

We also talk about on this podcast. An excellent resource.
