How Endometriosis and PCOS affect your skin
How Endometriosis and PCOS affect your skin
I was diagnosed with stage 4 Endometriosis and PCOS at the age of 15. I have since had more surgeries than I can count to keep it under control and dealt with many skin issues along the way. One thing I’m super passionate about is helping people with these issues because even though these are incredibly common conditions, So many go undiagnosed. Going undiagnosed with endometriosis can cause infertility and a whole host of other issues. The best thing that you can do if you feel like you may have one of these conditions is continue seeing new doctors until you find one that will listen to you. If you can get to an endometriosis specialist that’s the very best thing you can do but try to find a doctor that will be your advocate❤️ Endometriosis- I won’t go into a description about what endometriosis is because I don’t have a room here but one of the main issues with endometriosis and your skin is the fact that it’s incredibly inconsistent. One day your skin will be free of all rashes and be clear, and the next day it can break out in rashes and pimples. Endometriosis is a disease that causes inflammation in the body and you should try to avoid using any products on the skin that can make this condition worse. When shopping for skin care products opt for organic products that are paraben and sulphate free. Endometriosis causes an imbalance in hormone production so you may have to switch up your products and routines regularly. Another good option is to check out the Endometriosis diet. It’s not easy but it can be extremely helpful with these skin issues and the pain related to Endometriosis. PCOS- People with PCOS often experience acne and excessive hair growth. Higher insulin levels can also sometimes cause dark patches on the skin or skin tags, especially at the back of the neck, under the arms and in the groin. Acupuncture has been shown in clinical research to modulate the sympathetic nervous system, the endocrine system and the neuroendocrine system in a way that restores hormone balance in patients with PCOS. A diet that is low in carbohydrates and high in low carb vegetables, healthy oils and high quality lean protein. Avoid dairy products, sugar, gluten and alcohol. Exercise as well is always recommended. Another option for both conditions: There are two main ways to manage hormone issues that are linked to your acne outbreaks: Birth control pills Spironolactone Hormone treatments can help but they do take time. Around 3 months is best to see if these would work for you. Just remember the most important thing is to find a good Doctor Who is going to listen and who is going to do their very best to help find the things that work for you the individual. If you have a doctor and you don’t feel like they care or if you don’t feel like they are listening to you please please please be your own advocate and find a good doctor. You deserve it ❤️❤️❤️

Thinning Hair Causes and Treatments
Thinning Hair Causes and Treatments
Thinning hair is a worldwide condition. Men regularly experience hair loss from male pattern baldness, but both women and men may experience thin hair in their lifetime. The pattern in men is different to the pattern in women. Men develop recession at the temples, thinning and eventually a bald spot on the top of the head then potentially total baldness. Women develop diffuse thinning over the entire scalp that is most pronounced over the crown.
