Hey Fertile Friends, you might not be aware of the different types of PCOS, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.  Or perhaps, you've pulled up a blog talking about an adrenal type, insulin resistance type, inflammation type PCOS.  

In this episode, I talk about:

  • Four types of PCOS according to functional medicine
  • Four types of PCOS officially recognized by the international medical community
  • Whether you need to know which type of PCOS you have
