PCOS Health: Irregular Periods Linked to Heart Disease

The classic PCOS symptom of irregular periods not only causes distress to victims but can also increase the risk of heart disease, according to a new study.

The findings raise the bar regarding the effect on a woman’s health of an unsettled menstrual cycle and the need to restore it to normality.

Researchers studied 27,000 women found that those who reported regular monthly periods were 28% less likely to develop heart problems than those who said their cycles were generally irregular.

Although not all the women with irregular periods in the survey suffered from PCOS, the latter condition is a proven cause of irregular or nonexistent menstrual cycles and has long been linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

The new findings suggest the link to uneven periods and heart disease is present in lesser cases of irregularity as well as when PCOS is a major factor in the irregularity.

So it’s even more imperative that you adopt a routine of eating healthy along with regular exercise to lose weight and improve the management of your PCOS symptoms.
