PCOS Lady: I found these statistics posted on a blog or site in 2004 or 2005… Makes you think how the numbers have increased and maybe decreased over the years… This was the reality of PCOS in 2004!

2004 Statistics

~ ~ ~
•~ 6-10% of all Females; ages 5+ years, are PCOS
~
•~ 30% of all PCOSers register as Insulin Resistant
~
•~ 50% of all PCOSers are overweight
~
•~ 40% (up to) of “Unexplained Infertility” patients are actually PCOS and don’t even know it!
~
•~ 30% of all PCOSers do not present cysts
~
•~ 20% of “Abnormal Glucose Tolerance” tests are PCOS
~
•~ 40% of “Abnormal Glucose Tolerance” develop diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance by age 40
~
•~ 20% of all infertility patients deal with ovulation problems
~
•~ 5% of all infertility patients treat their infertility
~
•~ 15% of all infertility patients treat their infertility in a mandated state for infertility coverage insurance
~
•~ 75% of all IVF patients deliver a singleton
~
•~ 20% of all IVF patients deliver twins
~
•~ 5% of all IVF patients deliver triplets
~
•~ 25% of normal pregnancies end in miscarriage

I hope these statistics show you many things… 1st your doctors might be unaware of PCOS and its extremes… 2nd it effects your young girls… Bullying is an epidemic today, weight being a main cause… 3rd you may need to change your direction of testing, treatments, etc… 4th you may gained peace of mind in knowing more of what “it” might be or is… ETC… “IT” depends on YOU since PCOS effects every woman differently… Treatment varies for each woman too!
~
I am a firm believer many relationships, marriages and abuse of various degrees would be decreased IF we all know about PCOS…
~ If a female gains 100lbs over a year or close to it, she may have PCOS… Many females fall in to depression or hurt themselves when the weight will not go away!
~
* Have them tested for PCOS, a thyroid disorder or another hormone imbalance… Might be something else…

SMELLS WRONG! NUMBERS INCREASING, DOCTORS INTERPRET PCOS ANY WAY THEY LIKE, ETC.... SOMETHING HAS TO HAPPEN! 2004 THE AACE MADE PCOS A DOCTOR'S PRIORITY!
