Thanks to all the women with PCOS who volunteered.

A few months ago we asked for volunteers to take part in Charys Orr’s MSc Dissertation project.  I am very pleased to say that Charys has now recruited enough participants for her study and will go on to write up her findings.  I  will be conducting interviews with health professionals later this summer and the findings from both patients and health professionals will be drawn together in the autumn.

For now we’d both like to thank you all very much for helping by sharing your views.  If you’d like to keep up with the progress of this work, please keep an eye on this blog, and on my Twitter feed @DrCarolPercy.


Starting out with hope

Thanks for visiting.

This blog has just begun.  We hope to develop it over time.  We aim to share insights from health psychology and related disciplines, with the goal of helping women and girls with PCOS self manage and cope more effectively.

The blog will be managed by Dr Carol Percy, an academic at Coventry University, with research interests in the psychological impact of PCOS and the support needs of patients.  Carol is working with Charys Orr, a student on the MSc Health Psychology at Coventry University, to identify the self-management support needs of PCOS patients.

More information on self-management will follow.
