PCOD and PCOS are complex health conditions that have reported links to anxiety and depression. While the direct link between them and mental health conditions is still under study, coping with the syndrome or disorder requires us to change various aspects of our lifestyle. Navigating through PCOD and PCOS is often stressful and a rather lonely journey. People with PCOD and PCOS are about three times more likely to be diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Hormonal imbalances, effects like excessive facial hair growth and infertility are known to distress women with respect to their understanding of femininity. The lifestyle change that is core to tackling PCOD and PCOS is a rather difficult and long journey. A healthy mind is an important aspect of this path.
