Sleep Longer for PCOS Health

People who try to get by with a minimum amount of sleep are more likely to develop hardening of their arteries – a precursor of heart disease which women with PCOS are already prone to because of the latter condition’s multiple symptoms.
 
Researchers found calcified arteries in nearly a third of people who slept fewer than five hours a night. But this figure dropped to around one in 10 for those who slept just an extra hour, according to a Journal of the American Medical Association study of 495 adults.

The results might be down to PCOS-linked high blood pressure, which increases the likelihood of calcification. A good night’s rest, which ideally, should be eight hours, makes a difference because blood pressure levels are often lower during sleep.
 
Alternatively, stress, or a stress hormone like cortisol which has been tied to decreased sleep and increased calcification, may play a role. Be sure to get a good sleep even if it means cutting down on your social activities or recording a favorite TV show and going to bed early.
