We continue focus on PCOS Awareness Month this week with our patient interview series. Dr. Kaitlyn Hite conducted this interview with Ms. K, an 18 year-old woman with a history of PCOS and hypothyroidism. Her story, told as a medical history with additional details, raises awareness about the medical applications of FABMs beyond their more familiar use in family planning. FABMs like the Billings Ovulation Method and the Creighton Model offer versatile options to assist in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions like PCOS.
September is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month. In this post, fourth-year med student, Chris Galletti, details the story of one patient to help illustrate how practical applications of FABMs can help diagnose, treat, and manage medical conditions like PCOS.
