Are you underestimating just how much stress can take a toll on your menstrual cycle?
The Doctors welcome Nicole Jardim and Natalie Kringoudis, the hosts of “The Period Party” podcast, to share how they feel far too many women do not recognize how an emotion like stress can impact their cycle.
Natalie explains on their podcast the issue of stress and how it relates to a woman's cycle is a common and recurring topic with their listeners.
"Stress is such a big factor. We understand stress as being busy for having a deadline, but we don't look at the small little stressors that definitely add up to impacting our health as women, and that has a big impact on our sex hormones," she tells The Doctors.
Nicole adds, "We don't even realize [stress] is impacting us because we have never really been taught that."
The podcast hosts are also working to reframe the narrative surrounding the stages of a woman's reproductive life as described as a "nightmare." They note often life stages like puberty, getting your first period, fertility struggles, pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, perimenopause, and menopause are talked about in a negative context.
"They are often described as a series of physical and emotional complaints," Natalie notes, explaining that often the message women are given is "it's all bad and then you are going to die," something they want everyone to know is not true and is not a message that should be perpetuated.
