PCOS AwarenessSaturday, September 01, 2012
Good evening, dear readers!!
I would have liked to get this manicure up earlier today, but I was away from home.
As some of you know, September is PCOS Awareness month.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a very serious endocrine disorder. It can cause a lot of pain, suffering, embarrassment and stress. There are many symptoms, including:
*Hair growth in unwanted places
*Trouble getting pregnant as well as infertility
These are only some of the possible symptoms.
Unfortunately there is no cure for this condition, but it is possible to help ease symptoms with healthy lifestyle changes. At the end of this post I have included some links for more information.
At my friends suggestion, I have created a manicure in hopes to raise awareness for this syndrome. Teal is the colour of PCOS Awareness, and so I have created a manicure to represent that:
Please help spread the word!! And remember, to those of you who are suffering from this, you are not alone!!
Here are some links for more information:

Also, my friend Nory (who unfortunately suffers from this syndrome) has created gorgeous nail polish earrings to raise awareness for PCOS. The earrings cost $4 USD, and $1 out of all PCOS earring sales goes towards the PCOS Challenge (http://www.pcoschallenge.com/). I think what she is doing is absolutely wonderful!! :D Here is a link where you can find her earrings.
