In episode 93 of The PCOS Oracle Podcast, I speak with Dr. Aumatma who debunks some very popular fertility myths and speaks about how to prepare for your fertility journey.

It was really great delving into the many myths surrounding fertility and this whole biological clock. There’s this belief that after the age of 35 a females fertility has suddenly and drastically declines. When in reality, as Dr. Aumatma reveals, there are studies and evidence showing fertility doesn’t take a nose dive and conceiving and having a healthy pregnancy beyond 35 into ones 60s, is possible.

PCOS is very common. A study identifies that the global prevalence of PCOS is estimated to be between 6% and 26%. But despite it being so common, research estimates that up to 75% of women with PCOS remain undiagnosed.

A 2017 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism showed that over one-third of women with PCOS had to wait over 2 years and visit with at least 3 different health professionals before a doctor their diagnosis was established.
