How Stress Affects PCOS ?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 01 Oct 2021

[article]

PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome is a crucial phase that can affect any women's reproductive health. It is caused due to hormonal imbalances in a woman's body. Experts say that around 20% of women in India suffer from PCOS, which may arise if neglected. PCOS must be a common women's health problem now, but the management could be tricky. However, there are a few lifestyle changes that you can make to prevent or cure PCOS. Risk factors for PCOS include environment, genetics, unhealthy eating habits, weak immunity, and it may present with additional metabolic risks such as obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes 

Stress and PCOS:

When you are overthinking or taking too much stress, your body releases cortisol or the stress hormone. Women with PCOS are stressed with hormone fluctuations, obesity, irregular period cycle, male pattern balding, and extra body and facial hair. PCOS happens due to the excess secretion of androgen. The Cortisol or stress hormone is responsible for instigating the secretion of male hormones in your body. Cortisol is also responsible for:  

  • 1) Weakening the immune system  
  • 2) Increasing insulin resistance 
  • 3) Aggravating secretion of androgens or male sex hormones  
  • 4) Disturbing the secretion of LH, FSH, and prolactin.  

PCOS is a common scenario in women's healthcare, where physical health and mental health are affected. Sometimes our muted expressions, fear, anxiety, anger, negativity can also increase the chances of having PCOS. 

How to deal with it?

Sometimes women with PCOS certainly wish for a magic pill to stop PCOS. But, according to health experts, it is fortunate that no pills can cure this disorder. All you need to do is improve diet, focus on physical activity, managing mental health.  

Here are self-care techniques to deal with mental health issues:  

  1. Exercise regularly-

  2. Working out does not just help you be in a healthy weight range, but it also allows secret endorphins or happy hormones. These hormones alleviate your mood and are effective in reducing stress.

        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).
