Resistance Training Improves Sexual Function in PCOS

Sexual function and quality of life scores are commonly diminished in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Several strategies employed at once including dietary and lifestyle changes, acupuncture, emotional work, and aerobic physical exercise have all been shown to have positive effects on the metabolic and hormonal profiles of women with PCOS. And although aerobic (cardiovascular) exercise programs have been well proven to benefit, Physical Resistance Training (PRT) may have even more significant benefits that haven’t been as well studied.

Which PCOS Type Are You?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the common female hormone imbalances that we see at Acubalance, though it doesn’t always look the same in every patient. It is diagnosed based on a set of criteria, the main one being failure to ovulate regularly. But while some women struggle with hair loss and hirsutism (excess hair growth), others don’t. How can we define these types? And does it matter?

The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

Thank you ever so much to a lovely patient who turned me on to this amazing recipe (you know who you are). :) When I first heard about this recipe I wasn’t so sure it was for me – let’s just say medicine, and not baking, is my forte. But after hearing from her several times about how amazing this bread is, and also how simple to make, I had to give it a try.

Like a lot of women, Karen Barré had always had irregular periods, but she never gave them much thought. At least, the Langley resident didn’t worry about them too much until she wanted to have a baby. After more than a year of trying to conceive, Barré went to her doctor and found out the explanation for her wonky menstrual cycles and her inability to get pregnant: polycystic ovary syndrome.
