You will find a great deal of support for Polycystic ovary syndrome in the UK. Your local doctor and NHS hospital can provide excellent advice and treatment.

However, there are also a number of charities and support groups specialising in PCOS. One of the most useful organisation is Verity.

Verity is a Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome support group established in 1997. The charity aims to improve the lives of women living with PCOS by offering a broad range of support and information.

Verity is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who help more then one thousand women suffering from PCOS. Although the staff may not be medically qualified, they provide invaluable help through support groups, booklets, and newsletters.

You can find local Verity support groups throughout the UK. These informal meetings allow you to talk to other women who have PCOS, which can be a tremendous source of help and support.

Verity also organise twice yearly conferences where you have the chance to hear from some of the UK's leading PCOS experts. The conferences usually take place in late November and towards the end of Spring.

You can contact Verity by emailing office@verity-pcos.org.uk. If you are interested in becoming a member, email membership@verity-pcos.org.uk. If you would like to become a volunteer, email volunteers@verity-pcos.org.uk. For further information, take a look at their website www.verity-pcos.org.uk.
