It is known as a hormonal disorder, which is common among women, and affects about 7% worldwide. Chantelle Williams is among this estimated percentage. Her first instinct, after being told it was a possibility that she had PCOS, was to panic because of the symptoms that usually come with it. These are generally physically and emotionally draining. She started experiencing the heartbreaking symptoms soon after her second of three children. After her initial dread, Chantelle went into research mode where she set out to find out all she could about the disorder, and how to most effectively deal with it. She writes this book for women like herself who might be having similar symptoms, but are unsure what the cause might be. The symptoms of this disorder are usually different from one woman to another, but she advises women who are experiencing obesity, absent or irregular periods, acne, infertility, lipid abnormalities, among other things, to visit their doctor and discuss the symptoms with him or her. Chantelle would also like readers to be aware that a visit to the doctor will not confirm PCOS; there has to be blood testing of several different hormones.
