Today we talked through all things vaginal health, from fertility to menopause, why you don’t need to shave your vagina, PCOS and so much more. Here are some of the main takeaways.
Is Polycystic ovary syndrome – a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work
Which can often mean Irregular or no period
Signs of too much male hormones (acne, baldness, oily skin.. etc) – this can be shown in a blood test, so do ask your GP if you’re worried
It can also mean a lot of cysts on your ovaries
Stress: relaxing and taking time for yourself
Food: not as much high sugar, high salt, high fat foods – loads of fresh fruit and veg, green veggies and fibre!! Keep it diverse and try probiotic or fermented foods
Exercise: try less HITT, more weights or light cardio
Look at everything holistically and as a whole
Where to find Dr.Anita Mitra
