Menstrual cycle period issues are a common symptom of PCOS and I find many women haven't been truly educated on exactly what's going on. Remember that every womans PCOS will manifest differently so this will not apply to every woman.

 

1️⃣ It starts with an underlying triggering issue such as insulin resistance causing high insulin levels, your adrenals being under constant stress or excess body fat tissue.


2️⃣ This causes the female body to start producing androgens (male sex hormones) in too large of quantities, this is what's known as androgen excess.

3️⃣ This causes a cascading hormonal imbalance between LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone). The ratio between these two hormones is vitally important for the menstrual cycle and ovulation.

4️⃣ The end result being that the menstrual cycle is out of balance and unable to function properly, leading to irregular periods, heavy or light periods, anovulation, or simply not having a period at all.

 

I wouldn't be Drew Baird if I didn't advice to always focus on the root cause and not just the symptom. This means reducing physical and emotional stressors in your life, improving your insulin sensitivity, and implementing lifestyle behaviours to reduce any excess body fat.

 

I hope this image clears a few things up for you.
