Positive and uplifting online support group experience for women with PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder affecting about 7 million women in the United States. Support groups can become a powerful tool for affected women coping with the physical and emotional impacts of PCOS. However, support groups are not for everyone due to their overly serious and formal tone, causing some women to feel more uncomfortable about their disorder.

Cysters, an on line support group for women with PCOS, offers a positive and uplifting experience. It’s a platform where women can connect, share their stages of grief or healing, and receive mental support. Cysters provides a digital haven for PCOS sufferers to empower each other to break free of the stigma associated with the condition.
