What you should treat your PCOS-suffering S.O. to this Christmas
It’s the time for sharing! Christmas is just around the corner – have you got everything you wanted for your significant other yet? If not, don’t fret, we are here to help!
The festive season gives you the chance to show your loved ones how much you care and what’s a better way than helping your PCOS-suffering significant other with their condition by buying them a much-needed gift? But what do you get your loved one – what presents would benefit your girlfriend or wife with PCOS?
A Spa Day
Women with PCOS can suffer under extreme amounts of stress due to the hormonal changes in their body and the distressing side effects of the condition. PCOS-sufferers could benefit from a day of relaxing and unwinding at a local spa. Invest some time and money into a spa day for your loved one – some can be pretty pricey, so you’re looking at spending around £100, but it’s definitely worth it for the tranquil aftereffects it will have on your PCOS-suffering significant other. You could take your girlfriend or wife yourself or buy a package for two, so they can take their best friend or mother.
Reflexology is an alternative type of medicinal therapy that involves pressure to the feet and hands. According to Madeleine Shaw, ‘PCOS can be helped enormously by having a course of treatment, also providing a sense of calm in the body can help balance the endocrine system and discourage PCOS.’ This means a course of reflexology treatment is a great gift to give your loved one, especially if you are trying to have a baby.
A Self-Care Package
One of the most important things a woman who suffers with PCOS should do is take care of herself. Self-care is such a valuable practice for anyone, but especially vital to individuals who suffer with the condition. Think about getting your loved one a few bits that will contribute to a self-care session. You could buy a hot chocolate set, a face pack, moisturiser, and even a pair of comfy socks and a dressing gown. Think about how your loved one relaxes, then buy things that will contribute to their rest.
Sleep is also an important part of self-care, so you could buy presents that will help your girlfriend or wife get a good night’s rest. Gifts could include a pair of pyjamas, an eye mask or ear plugs. You could even consider buying your loved one a subscription for a sleeping app that will help them get some well-earned slumber.
