Stress wouldn't have to be ness. in form of child abuse. I had just attended a fostering/adoptive conference on stress & what the effects of it do to our brain/bodies. Did you know that the effects of stress can start in utero? A mother under stress passes that stress onto her fetus.

I'd have to disagree with that too. I am not a factor of child abuse or PTSD and I have PCOS... I started my periods when I was 11 and even back then my periods were super irregular. Talking 3-4 months each one. I wasn't diagnosed with it until 2003 when TTC and confirmed really when they took a look at my ovaries this year. I never felt stressed or high amounts of stress when I was younger.

I'd kind of agree it could be genetic... seeing as how my grandmother I believe had it. My mother had issues as well - but not quite the same. She had regular periods up until she delivered me and began bleeding two weeks at a time if not longer. So I think genetics can play a role in it versus stress.

I disagree I truly think there is a genetic component to the whole thing As My Mother has had issues with cysts up until her hysterectomy for cancer and my Dad has type 2 diabetes and while I think stress can cause lots of issues how do you explain people that have no PTSD or child abuse in their background yet they have PCOS

I just read the article and while it is an interesting tie and quite possibly true, I am not sure that it is factual. Seems a little loose of a tie to me. I work in the mental health feild and know that our bodies do indeed do amazing things to preserve our safety first and foremost, but disagree it can cause pcos. But thank you for the linksIts always good to read more ideas and theories.

Just wanted to share this page I found called "A Desire to Heal", in it she highlights a 3 part article on the very real link to stress (early or late in life) to PCOS. I enjoyed the read, it went hand in hand with two trainings I just had on stress for fostering~Hope you find it informative, or at the least, interesting.
Blessings to you,
