Since September is #PCOSAwareness Month, I wanted to share this before the month flies by and it's October..😉 #PCOS effects 1 in 10 women and is the leading cause of #infertility. 💁🏻 I know several women have battled PCOS but have gotten their lives back thanks to #Plexus! ... did you know ... 💁🏻80% of women with 6 or fewer periods per year, have PCOS. 💁🏻if left untreated, it may lead to #Uterine and #Endometrial #Cancer, as well as #cardiacdisease. 💁🏻Women with PCOS have higher rates of #anxiety & #depression than women without the syndrome. 💁🏻#ElevatedInsulin or #InsulinResistance are seen in the majority of women with PCOS. 💁🏻Women with PCOS are at a higher risk of developing #ObstructiveSleepApnea (#OSA) due to the influence of #androgens affecting #sleepreceptors in the brain. 💁🏻Women with PCOS have a 70% prevalence of elevated ⬆️ #triglycerides and low ⬇️ HDL (“good” #cholesterol). 💁🏻One of the earliest signs of elevated androgens in #adolescents with PCOS is #acne. 💁🏻Clinical studies demonstrate that modest #weightloss of 5-10% of initial body weight improves metabolic, physiological and psychological aspects of PCOS. 💁🏻Women with PCOS have a higher incidence of #gestationaldiabetes, #miscarriages, #preterm deliveries, and #stillbirths.
For women with PCOS and those experiencing symptoms (#menstrual irregularity, #excesshairgrowth, #weightgain/trouble losing weight, #thinninghair, depression/anxiety, infertility, pelvic pain, sleep apnea, etc.), it's important to know you're not alone!
