Navigating the Changing Stages of PCOS With Dr. Rashmi Kudesia

Welcome to Episode 7 of Season 8 of The PCOS Revolution Podcast: Navigating the Changing Stages of PCOS With Dr. Rashmi Kudesia

Today we’re speaking with Dr. Rashmi Kudesia of CCRM Fertility Houston on the changes that can happen with PCOS in different stages of our lives, and how different symptoms may take priority at different times in our lives. These challenges can manifest as irregular cycles as a teen, hirsutism or weight management later on, and ultimately infertility. We’ll also speak about the reassuring data on how we can mitigate the long-term health impacts of PCOS by holistic lifestyle management in the reproductive years.
