“Me Aarogyam, Me Prasnalu #YourHealthYourQuestions live in Telugu


A new series of Facebook live in Telugu titled “Me Aarogyam, Me Prasnalu” (#YourHealthYourQuestions) will be launched on 11 February 2022 at 4 p.m. to specifically address questions related to PCOS -- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

Dr. Jyothi Budi, Clinical Director FERTY 9, MS Reproductive medicine (London) will be on Facebook live; Dr. Apoorva Pallam Reddy, Fertility Specialist and Laparoscopic surgeon, Phoenix Speciality clinic will be the moderator. The program would be held under the guidance of Dr. Hema Divakar.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels.

This is an opportunity for Telugu living across the world to clear the myths about health issues.

An estimated one in five Indian women suffers from PCOS. The program aims to raise awareness amidst the Telugu-speaking community all over the world about women’s healthcare, and break the language barrier in which health information is delivered, thereby reaching every girl and every woman.

It is a mission undertaken by the Federation of International Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (FIGO) Chair of Well Woman Healthcare, Dr. Hema Divakar, Medical Director, Divakars Speciality Hospital.

This series is part of Health For Her, a special initiative and app being launched by the organisation Artist For Her, with support from Divakars Service Trust, in association with DocSpacePlus.

The six-episode series, which will go live every 15 days on Mondays at 4 p.m., will address several questions in a conversational style so that the prevailing myths and misconceptions in the space of women’s health are dispelled. In the coming weeks, various topics of interest spanning menstrual health, maternal health, mental health and menopausal health will be addressed.

This will go a long way in empowering girls and women to take measures for preventing illness and promoting wellness.

The program will have the best of national experts from the region, who will speak in Telugu on the issue of PCOS.

The series will soon be available in other Indian regional languages also. The talks will later be made available on YouTube as well.

After Facebook Live, to consult more doctors for further opinions and guidance, you may download the HealthforHer app (Google Play Store & IOS).
