A PCOS Diagnosis Isn’t Enough
Did anyone ever ask WHY your body was struggling when they gave you the PCOS Diagnosis?
To discover your PCOS root cause we need to start by asking why! Why are you having period problems, infertility, and weight gain? Why?
Doctors seek to label your collection of symptoms with a diagnosis. This leads them to medications and procedural options to address unwanted symptoms. The problem is those medications don’t treat the root of the issue.
Well, in this video we’re going to look at the difference between being labeled with a diagnosis and getting a full PCOS workup. Let’s dive in so you can start discovering the root cause of your PCOS.

While there are several health change that can have a wonderful impact on your PCOS fertility, the food you eat is a great place to start. You don’t have to be perfect but the combination of carefully choosing and avoiding certain foods can nourish your hormone back into balance. Get started with My PCOS Fertility Meal Plan
A significant PCOS struggle I have seen a lot is getting a diagnosis, but not a full, proper workup.
Doctors seek to lump your symptoms and tests into a diagnosis so they can move on to offering you the treatment options they provide.
Your fertility hormones, the hormones that regulate your periods, and are responsible for good or poor fertility.
Your PCOS hormones and your reproductive hormones are at the tippy, tippy top of the hormone pyramid. There are a lot of stages where things can go wrong beneath your PCOS hormones.
In a proper workup, we look at each one of those symptoms and dig into what they are telling us. But we also want to get more labs to help us know what you can do to care for your body and fix the problem.
Back up a little bit and ask why? Why are you having irregular cycles? Why are you having anovulatory or non-conceivable cycles? Why are you dealing with recurrent miscarriages? It really comes down to the why are your hormones off?
Ultimately, after a few months of making some changes, the women I work with see their periods return to normal, ovulation occurs as expected and many get their positive pregnancy test within 3-5 months.

Hi there! I’m Ashlene Korcek, the PCOS Mama and founder of Nourished to Healthy
I help women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome balance their hormones naturally so that they can take back control of their bodies, boost their fertility, and ultimately live free from the symptoms of PCOS. Like you, I have PCOS, I was diagnosed while struggling with infertility and was told I likely would never have children. Even as a board-certified Physician Assistant I felt lost about what to do and very alone! Fast forward 5 years and I have 3 healthy children, but I never want another woman to feel lost and alone the way I did!
You can break free from the downward spiral of PCOS and feel amazing in your own skin again!
