PCOS - A Simple Explanation For Your Husband or Partner
Are you the husband? Her partner?
First things first, let’s talk about PCOS.
PCOS is polycystic ovary syndrome.
When hormones aren’t balanced, the ovaries produce too many and too little hormones at the same time. This leads to excessive production of androgen hormones. These cause symptoms like acne, hair loss, weight gain, and infertility.
The only way to know if your partner has PCOS is to see a doctor and get her tested. In the meantime, you can talk to your partner about her symptoms and just let her explain how PCOS affects her life.
What You Should Know If She's Diagnosed With PCOS
You'll have to put in some effort to figure these out.
PCOS affects women differently.
She may not necessarily be pregnant if she misses her period.
Having difficulty getting pregnant if that is what the two of you want is horribly painful for her.
Be incredibly supportive of her weight loss efforts.
You may not care about her size or facial hair, but she probably does.
PCOS has a significant impact on a woman's feeling of femininity. You can help her by reminding her how beautiful she really is, and how much you admire her.
How to Talk to Your Woman About PCOS
Please be kind and gentle.
