Are you healthy? Whether you know it or not, you can have PCOS and be very healthy. PCOS is a tendency for certain hormonal processes within your body to work a little differently than they are supposed to. The results of these issues can be frustrating!

But by and large, many women with PCOS are actually healthier than many other women because they pay attention, and make better choices concerning their lifestyle. So celebrate your healthy living as a result of PCOS! If you don't feel that you have already achieved overall health in spite of having PCOS, take this as an opportunity to start anew, in pursuit of new healthy achievements in 2008.
