Ok, I'm out of the loop, can you fill me in on what "The Closer" is and what it had to do with PCOS?

I guess I don't watch a lot of tv. :o)

It is wonderful to see them portray PCOS so well - pretty much. Everything that was said was pretty accurate - for a change. However, I was not happy to hear her answer the question about "reversing early menopause". The answer portrayed Ovarian Drilling and treatment of the PCOS as a "cure" for early menopause - which we all know is not accurate.

I am pleased to see some TV on the subject though and see how they will continue this new diagnosis. Im also glad to see that she has PCOS being that she is "thin"....this will help people realize that being PCOS does not mean being overweight and that you can have PCOS no matter what your size.

Bravo TNT - we needed this!
