I have had many patients tell me how awful they feel most of the time. Their periods have been heavy, painful, and irregular. They get moderate to severe bloating, headaches, and carb cravings for a week prior to their period and feel relief with their period. Other women get more male type hair growth and gain weight. And they start thinking it is “all in my head”.
When teenaged girls and women learn to chart their fertility in a medically meaningful way, they are so excited. They know intuitively that something has been wrong but all that has been done is a couple of minor blood tests and maybe a pelvic ultrasound. Now they are in the driver’s seat of their health!
We hope that our website will be a great resource for those needing reproductive and gynecologic health education and medical treatment!
