A New South Wales mum has just launched the 2019 PCOS Journal.  The journal goes beyond the typical planner and has been created specifically for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) to help them nurture, track and understand their personal health.

Melissa Christie created the journal during her own personal fertility journey having tragically losing her first baby in the womb. Melissa said “In the wake of my overwhelming grief, I went about painstakingly researching this medical condition I was told I had.  I wanted to find out more about my diagnosis of PCOS, what it meant for my future fertility and how I could treat it, whilst also nurturing my body and health. After I had discovered so many interesting facts I didn’t realise, I decided to share it all in the most effective way with other women who have the same questions and uncertainty I had. Thus the 2019 PCOS Journal was born.”

PCOS is a complex endocrine (hormonal) disorder comprised of a set of symptoms that affect all women with it differently. There is no definitive cause, no definitive cure and PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder in the world. Most devastatingly, this condition is also the leading cause of reduced fertility in women.

The journal not only offers women an inviting solution for planning their day-to-day social and professional lives, but it also shares a comprehensive understanding of our PCOS symptoms, treatments, cycles and treatment options. Among the special features included in the journal are a series of charts to help a woman track her cycle, weight, daily habits, PCOS symptoms, treatments and more, healthy and simple changes she can make to her lifestyle today, and ideas to nurture her health physically, mentally and emotionally.
