Polycystic ovary syndrome: a new association wants to help women suffering from it

September is dedicated to raising awareness of the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which affects millions of women in France. A new association has been formed in Martinique to help them deal with this little-known disease for which there is no cure.


September is PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Awareness Month.

In Martinique, the new association Cyst’Her is organizing the first events dedicated to this disease, which affects one in seven women in Europe. So PCOS Day is scheduled for Sunday, September 24, 2023 in Appaloosa in François. Health and wellness professionals will be in attendance. There will also be exhibitors.

Within a month there will be seminars, meetings and conferences dedicated to this syndrome.

Jesse Antiste Asseli is President and Founder of the Cyst’Her Association. It is the first association in the French West Indies to help women with PCOS.

This nurse and naturopath by profession also suffers from this disease. She went very far in her research on this syndrome.

Today she wants to share her knowledge and experience with women in Martinique who suffer from PCOS without even knowing it.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a chronic and progressive disease that affects more than one in seven women of childbearing age.

Causes a violation of the menstrual cycle, resulting in infertility in 75% of women suffering from the syndrome.

PCOS affects the ovaries and causes a hormonal imbalance that presents with many symptoms that make it difficult to diagnose. It is estimated that between 50% and 70% of people with this syndrome are unaware of it.

You can experience pain, irregular periods, and infertility. Other symptoms such as weight gain or loss, fatigue, body hair due to hormonal changes, hair loss and acne are also caused by PCOS.

To date, there is no cure for PCOS.
