Resistance Training Might Improve Your Sex Life

Sex is a part of life. Yet it is a problem for a lot of women with PCOS.

What to do? Well, it turns out that regular resistance exercise may help.

Resistance training is any exercise that causes the muscles to contract against an external resistance with the expectation of increases in strength, tone, mass, and endurance. A common example is lifting weights.

There are many benefits of resistance training, such as improved mood, loss of fat, reduced insulin resistance, increased self-esteem, and much more.

An additional benefit was discovered by researchers at the Ribeirão Preto Medical School of University of São Paulo in Brazil. They put 43 women with PCOS on a supervised physical resistance training program for 16 weeks.

By the end of the program, the women had an improved Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) score. They reported an increase in desire, excitement and lubrication. They also reported less depression and anxiety.

If you're not on some kind of resistance exercise program, why not look into it? Consult with a personal trainer or do your own research on the Internet to discover something that will work for you.
