Take back control of your PCOS

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a condition most women will have heard of, but you’ll only truly appreciate just how debilitating a disorder it can be if you’re unlucky enough to be one in the 10 women globally who suffer from it.

In simple terms PCOS is an endocrine disorder characterised by a variety of symptoms that can severely impact life quality: irregular menstrual cycles, infertility, weight gain, acne, and excessive hair growth are just the tip of the iceberg.

But in reality it’s a hugely complex condition. Beneath these symptoms lie heightened risks of developing life-changing problems, including diabetes, heart disease, and mental health challenges, making PCOS much more than a reproductive or hormonal disorder.

Enter Dr Fiona McCulloch, whose own journey with PCOS has not only shaped her professional focus but also fuelled her passion for helping others navigate this challenging landscape.

Her book – 8 Steps to Reverse Your PCOS – offers a beacon of hope for sufferers of all ages, providing actionable advice grounded in scientific research and clinical practice.

Dr McCulloch’s approach dismantles the often one-dimensional treatment strategies typically offered to PCOS sufferers. She’s particularly critical of the widespread use of the oral contraceptive pill, which, while regulating menstrual cycles, does little to address the hormonal imbalances at the core of PCOS.

In an advice-packed conversation with Unfiltered editor-in-chief Joe Warner, Dr McCulloch explains her reasons for advocating a holistic approach to managing the condition, emphasising the power of diet and exercise in restoring hormonal balance – especially insulin resistance, a frequent companion of PCOS – and enhancing overall well-being.

Ultimately, Dr McCulloch’s key message is empowerment to provide women with the advice, insight and confidence they need to seize control of their PCOS, rather than let the condition continue to control every aspect of their lives.
