Turns out, in Trinidad & Tobago, PCOS affects 1 in 4 women, way higher than the global average. That’s right, nearly a quarter of us are dealing with this frustrating hormonal imbalance. But here’s the good news: you’re not on this journey alone, and there’s so much we can do to manage it together!

Remember those irregular periods, the stubborn weight gain, or that unwanted facial hair?

Yep, all part of the PCOS rollercoaster. But listen, these symptoms don’t define you. You’re strong, beautiful, and capable of achieving all your dreams, PCOS or not.

The key is knowledge and support.

Knowing that family history plays a role, that mental health matters just as much as physical health, and that managing weight can make a big difference, empowers you to take control. Remember, irregular periods aren’t the only PCOS sign, so listen to your body and talk to your doctor.
