Relationships and PCOS

Posted on February 6, 2019

PCOS can put a strain on a relationship. A partner or significant other may struggle to understand the emotional and body struggles. Sometimes we don't know how to ask for help, and sometimes our loved ones don't know how to help.

On myPCOSteam, the social network and online support group for those living with PCOS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Relationships are one of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about relationships:

How Do You Get Your Spouse To Understand PCOS?

How to deal with hurtful remarks about facial hair from friends/coworkers?

How hard is it to get pregnant with PCOS?

Here are some conversations about relationships:

"Anybody else worry about starting a new relationship & having to explain everything all over again? I just started seeing a new guy after being single for about 2 years and I mentioned in conversation I had PCOS and straight away he googled it..."

"We have suffered with fertility in all reality our entire relationship but didn't really notice until 2015..."

"I have pcos and I hate my excess hair growth. l am really nervous about getting close in a relationship because I have hair everywhere especially my chin."

Can you relate?
