PCOS and thrush?
Let’s back up a little…
Women with PCOS often have what’s called ‘a leaky gut’. So much so that I’ve dedicated a full chapter to the gut in my bestselling book, Conquer Your PCOS Naturally. I believe that if you don’t conquer your gut issues, you can’t truly conquer your PCOS either.
This can contribute to obesity, pain, inflammation, bloating, an imbalance in the bugs in your gut, excessive oestrogen, thrush (candida, or ‘yeast’) and more.
This change in your gut function can cause a yeast infection.
Women with yeast infections can experience:
- Vaginal and oral yeast infections
- Digestive disorders and allergies
- Muscle aches
- Brain fog
- Painful sex
- Embarrassing itching in private places
- Mood problems
- Oestrogen dominance
- A change in hormone balance
