Ways to Reverse Your PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder in women of reproductive age, affecting 10-15 percent of women and upward of seven million women in the U.S. alone.

The condition affects a woman’s entire body, with symptoms such as weight gain, irregular periods, infertility, acne, hair growth on the face (hirsutism), and hair loss. 

PCOS also steps-up a woman’s risks for type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease as she gets older.

And, it doesn’t go away after menopause. 

While there are genetic links, environmental factors like endocrine disruptors (both natural and man-made) also impact PCOS. Endocrine disruptors are everywhere; however, there are ways you can reduce your exposure to them. 

Some things you can do include avoiding plastics in your food or when cooking and being mindful of the beauty products and household cleaners you use. 

Keep reading for some steps you can take to avoid exposure.
