Who we are
Our website address is: http://bethanyashlyn.com.
While I write about health, wellness, relationships, and PCOS, I am by no means an expert. My information comes from reliable sources and countless hours of research. However, I have no degree in this field, and you should always do your research and talk to professionals about anything that pertains to your health.
I also have affiliate links in most of my articles. While I will always share my honest opinion, I do sometimes make a small commission off of certain products and services. I promise to all of you that I will never share a product or service that I do not 100% stand behind and have not purchased myself.
