|Women today are faced with a confluence of personal and professional demands. Their reproductive years can be particularly challenging. During this time, a woman’s self-image, romantic relationships, career advancement and family building may all be at their height of importance and PCOS can negatively impact a woman’s life in all of these areas. Consequently, stress that is created by facing obstacles in these areas can exacerbate PCOS. Stress reduction techniques can be beneficial in helping a woman’s self-image, focus, relationships, diet and ultimately reduce many of the effects of PCOS. Our workshop will identify the ways in which PCOS can impact the modern woman’s life, how the modern woman’s life can cause PCOS symptoms to worsen, and how interventions can alleviate stress and break the negative PCOS/life stress cycle.|
