Hello, I'm Katy Bradbury, a qualified Nutritional Therapist, Private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked in Women's Health, Maternal and Children's Health for many years.
Today's podcast is "Three tools people with PCOS can use to improve their fertility." Many young women get diagnosed with PCOS by generalised symptoms of hormonal imbalance and irregular periods.
