Reviews

Reviewer: PCOS Awareness Association, USA, a volunteer-based not for profit organization for the education, awareness and support of people affected by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. The Association approached the developer MyHealthTeams to set up the social network
Review:

“myPCOSteam is a free social network that makes it easy for you to:

  • get the emotional support you need from others like you, and
  • gain practical advice and insights on managing treatment or therapies for PCOS.

When you or a loved one are first diagnosed, it's not uncommon to feel alone and uncertain of where to find the best information and people that can help you now. We believe in making it easy to find the best people around you to help you get the answers you need, and to find support from people who can truly relate. The main currency on our site is trust – the more you share in posts and your stories, the more questions you ask and answer, the more your support will be valued by other members.

myPCOSteam is the only social network where you can truly connect, make real friendships, and share daily ups and downs in a judgment-free place.”

Review:

“I was diagnosed with PCOS back in 2012, before my husband and I had our son. Like many thousands of other women, my struggle with infertility was how my doctor finally came to my PCOS diagnosis. 

PCOS isn't a well-known condition, and finding others like me was difficult. At MyHealthTeams, we create social networks for people living with chronic conditions. I know from first-hand experience that there is immeasurable value from connecting with others who share your diagnosis. 

Earlier this year, I was thrilled when Megan Stewart, Founder of PCOSAA, reached out to me about the possibility of launching a social network dedicated to PCOS, and myPCOSteam.com was born out of our desire to connect women with PCOS online. 

myPCOSteam is the first online support group and social network for women living with PCOS.”
