6 PCOS Questions Women are too Embarrassed to ask!

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 01 Oct 2021

[article]

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS is the root cause of most female problems. PCOS is a hormonal disorder that is caused due by excess secretion of androgen and less secretion of estrogen in any woman's body. It affects your regular menstrual cycle and also can be a hindrance while you plan for pregnancy. In PCOS, the hormonal imbalance creates a negative impact on a women's reproductive health.  

Women's health problems could be a tricky part sometimes. Still, there are a lot of women around the globe who shy away while talking about PCOS, menstrual cycle, or intimate hygiene. In this article, we will cover 6 questions about PCOS that women are embarrassed to ask.  

  

 
Q1. Why do I have a low sex drive? 

Low sex drive is one of the most common problems in PCOS. If you think the androgen secretion is only messing up with your sexual satisfaction, you are not alone! Infrequent periods, hirsutism, acne, and weight gain are some of the tell-tale signs of PCOS. The physical and mental changes caused by high testosterone levels can mess with a woman’s sex life.

Q2. My breasts and nipples hurt a lot sometimes. What is the reason for that? 

The main reason behind the pain in breasts or nipples is the imbalance of hormones during PCOS. Hence, women with PCOS are at increased risk of water retention and breast tenderness. Below mentioned are a few of the steps that might help you during those days: 

  • 1)  Apply ice or heat 
  • 2)  Avoid caffeine 
  • 3)  Reduce overeating salty food 
  • 4)  Wear a period bra 
  • 5)  Get proper sleep to avoid stress 
  •       If the pain gets adverse, consult your doctor!

Q3. Why do I have a fatty liver? 

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) happens in PCOS due to several other factors: 

  • 1)  Unnecessary weight gain 
  • 2)  High triglycerides,  
  • 3)  Fluctuating cholesterol levels 
  • 4)  Consumption of carbs and unhealthy fats 
  • 5)  Heredity  
  • 6)  Inactive lifestyle 

A properly balanced diet, consumption of fish oil, losing and maintaining weight, and regular physical exercise can help combat women against fatty liver. A checkup with a doctor for further advice might be valuable as well.

Q4. I notice an increase in my facial hair. What is the reason behind it? 

Excessive secretion of male hormone (androgen) is the main reason behind facial hair growth. Here are a few tips for maintaining facial hair growth: 

  • 1)  Laser hair reduction treatment 

  • 2)  Shaving or plucking could be another option if you want to opt for natural ways. 

  • 3)  Sometimes weight loss can also reduce your unwanted facial hair growth.

Q5. My neck and thighs are dark in color. Why is that? 

This is not an uncommon scenario for women who have PCOS. This is known as Acanthosis Nigricans, which can be visible in overweight people and those with pre-diabetes. Also, you can find the dark patches in a lot of other places like: 

  • 1)  Armpits 
  • 2)  Groin 
  • 3)  Neck  
  • 4)  Vulva  
  • 5)  Elbows  
  • 6)  Knees  
  • 7)  Knuckles 
  • 8)  Lips 
  • 9)  Palms and soles of the feet 

Q6. I have a heavy period flow and white discharge? Is this common? 

Women with PCOS might face a heavy white discharge during their ovulation. It happens clearly due to the less secretion of estrogen hormones and excess secretion of androgen hormones. But there are a few cases where you should consult a doctor like: 

  • 1)  Vaginal discharge is yellow, green, grey, or foul-smelling 
  • 2)  Itching or burning near the genitals 
  • 3)  Discomfort or pain when urinating  
  • 4)  Discomfort or pain during sexual intercourse  

  Some healthy tips for maintaining PCOS problems: 

  • 1)  Maintain a healthy weight 
  • 2)  An active lifestyle with yoga and exercises 
  • 3)  Limit carbohydrates and caffeine 
  • 4)  Eat plenty of fiber and healthy fats. 
  • 5)  Consume rich-antioxidant foods

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
