Talk therapy with a mental health expert is frequently used as a mental health therapy for PCOS. During a therapy session, you will be able to talk about your feelings, ask questions, be confidently vulnerable and speak your heart out.
The mental health expert or PCOS therapist will analyse whatever you say, will talk to you without judgement, suggest mental health improvement techniques and exercises and thus help you in combating PCOS induced depression.
While stress itself may not directly cause PCOS, high levels of stress can lead to an increase in cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Cortisol is responsible for regulating the body's response to stress, and high levels of cortisol can disrupt the balance of hormones in the body, potentially leading to PCOS.
Research has shown that women with PCOS often have higher cortisol levels than women without the condition. This suggests that stress and high cortisol levels may play a role in the development of PCOS. However, more research is needed to fully understand the relationship between stress, cortisol, and PCOS.
PCOS Therapy Sessions for Mental Well-being
Studies show that women with PCOS are more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression than women without PCOS. Moreover, bad mental health can worsen PCOS symptoms. Therefore, you must take responsible actions for protecting and improving your mental health like therapy for PCOS and fight with PCOS like a warrior that you are.
How PCOS affects mental health? What mental illness is associated with PCOS?
Studies have indicated that women with PCOS are more prone than those without the illness to suffer from mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression.
Although the precise causes are unknown, some researchers believe that hormonal imbalances and the emotional stress brought on by overseeing PCOS symptoms may be a factor.
So, PCOS and mental illness are generally well described in terms of anxiety and depression. However, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, and eating disorders may also affect women with PCOS.
