We know that PCOS comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't know the many symptoms we experience.

On myPCOSteam.com, the social network and online support group for women living with PCOS, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. myPCOSteam has grown to reach 27,000 members and members have shared thousands of conversations about life with PCOS!
