PCOS, or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, affects around one in every ten women in the United Kingdom. Symptoms include irregular periods (or no periods at all), extra facial or body hair, difficulties getting pregnant, weight gain, greasy skin, acne, and enlarged ovaries — though many women experience no symptoms at all, meaning the disorder can go untreated far into adulthood.
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is known for keeping her personal life private, but one thing she has been extremely open about is her PCOS diagnosis, which she received while attempting to conceive her fourth child, Harper Seven.
Victoria Caroline Beckham, better known as Victoria Beckham, is an English singer, songwriter, fashion designer, and television personality who was born on April 17, 1974. She rose to fame in the 1990s as a member of the Spice Girls, where she earned the nickname Posh Spice.
The quartet became the best-selling female group of all time with over 100 million records sold globally. Beckham was contracted to Virgin Records after the Spice Girls split in 2001, and released her self-titled debut solo album, which yielded two UK Top 10 singles.
Beckham has established himself as a fashion designer and style symbol around the world. She created an eponymous label in 2008, and a lower-priced (diffusion) label in 2011, after high-profile partnerships with other companies.
In the 2017 New Year Honours, Beckham was awarded an OBE for services to the fashion industry. David Beckham is her husband, and the couple has four children, including Brooklyn. The couple’s combined wealth is estimated to be £355 million as of May 2019.
