Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the leading causes of infertility in the world. Understanding the pathogenesis of PCOS thus becomes very important when we are faced with the reality of our modern clinical practice, where by so many patients struggle to become pregnant. In this course Jane Lyttleton does an excellent job of explaining both the Western and Chinese medical view points and treatment options for PCOS, using many published research studies to back up her ideas. She has also added case examples from her own clinical experience, thus empowering the practitioner with a mindset of success.

Jane qualified first as a research scientist and then as doctor of Chinese medicine. After thirty years of TCM clinical experience and having had the privilege of working in gynaecology hospital departments with some of China's best known specialists, she sits comfortably with the logic of both Chinese medicine and western science and feels both can contribute greatly to positive therapeutic outcomes for the patient.
Jane is a Director of a multi modality medical centre in Sydney where she practices TCM focusing on her specialty in gynaecology and infertility.
She is also the Director of the Acupuncture Pregnancy clinics in Sydney and Melbourne.
