Welcome back to Fertility Friendly Food podcast! In this episode, part of our PCOS mini-series for PCOS Awareness Month, we delve into the connection between PCOS and mental health. We explore statistics revealing higher rates of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders among those with PCOS.

Addressing mental health alongside PCOS is crucial. Avoiding generic diet advice, prioritizing comprehensive care, and open conversations about mental well-being are key.

As we wrap up our PCOS mini-series, we invite you to tune in and gain valuable insights.
