PCOS, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is described as raised androgen levels in women which result in an imbalance of sex hormones. This hormone imbalance can have an effect on ovulation by causing irregular, absent, or heavy menstrual bleeding. Due to this, PCOS is the leading cause of infertility.  One of the consequences of PCOS is an increased resistance to insulin that leads to weight gain and possibly obesity. Unfortunately, a cure for PCOS has not been discovered yet but it can be managed. Follow these lifestyle tips on how to effectively manage and prevent PCOS!

Eating Healthy:

Eating healthy is one of the most crucial steps to get rid of PCOS. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet and cut down on food that is full of hormones like broiler chicken. Avoid chicken and go for alternatives like fish. Avoid sugar, since higher sugar levels can also be damaging. Incorporate little changes to your lifestyle and you’ll see how much of a difference it will make. Make healthy life choices and improve the quality of your life.(how?)


PCOS can affect anybody and not just the people who are on the curvier side. Maintain a healthy lifestyle by incorporating some kind of physical activity into your daily life. It can be either walk or gym. Exercise doesn’t only help with PCOS but also keeps you healthy and active. It also keeps the hormones in balance which helps to minimize the symptoms of PCOS like thicker facial hair and irregular menstrual cycle.

Stay Stress-Free:

Stress is one of the leading causes of hormonal imbalance, irregular periods, PCOS and a lot of other major health problems. Indulge yourself in the activities that you like doing and push the negativity away from your life.  Embrace a healthy, stress-free life that would not only help you get rid of the complications caused by PCOS but will also help you improve your quality of life.
