How mental health is impacted by PCOS
September is PCOS Awareness Month, which makes this the perfect time to shed light on a condition that impacts many women not only physically but mentally.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that causes a woman’s hormones to fluctuate, which can impact individuals in a variety of ways, including issues with one’s menstrual cycle and fertility.
Side effects for PCOS include an increase of thicker, darker hair on the face and body, acne, weight gain, and irregular periods, among other long-term health concerns like heart disease.
Pinkvilla takes a thorough look at PCOS and shares some of the ways to manage the mental and physical symptoms of the condition.
For instance, a change in diet and adding exercise to a daily routine can be helpful, and antidepressants and prescribed supplements can have a positive effect on mental health by helping manage depression and anxiety.
Laser hair removal is also a popular treatment option that offers both physical and mental health benefits. With more hair growth taking place, laser hair removal allows women to enjoy more confidence knowing unwanted hair is gone, and it eliminates the stress that comes with many other temporary hair removal methods like shaving or waxing.
