Why Sex is Awesome for Women with PCOS
Mar 31,2023 | Yvette Rose
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder that affects reproductive-age women. One of the common symptoms of PCOS is irregular menstrual cycles, which can lead to difficulties with fertility. Sex, however, can have important benefits for women with PCOS.
First, regular sexual activity can help regulate menstrual cycles and improve fertility. This is because sexual activity stimulates the release of hormones such as oxytocin and dopamine, which can help regulate menstrual cycles and increase ovulation. Additionally, regular sexual activity can help increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, which can also improve fertility.
Sex can also help reduce stress, which is important for women with PCOS because stress can exacerbate PCOS symptoms. Stress can lead to hormonal imbalances and can also cause weight gain, which is a common symptom of PCOS. Regular sexual activity can help reduce stress and improve mood, which can help manage PCOS symptoms.
Furthermore, sex can have important benefits for women's overall health. It can help strengthen the immune system, reduce the risk of heart disease, and improve mental health. These benefits are important for women with PCOS, who may be at increased risk for these conditions due to hormonal imbalances and other PCOS-related factors.
Overall, while sex may not directly cure PCOS, it can have important benefits for managing PCOS symptoms and improving overall health.
Remember, sex is supposed to be fun and enjoyable! By embracing your sexuality and prioritizing your sexual health, you can improve your overall quality of life and manage your PCOS symptoms more effectively.
