It is important for you to use natural products since products that have harmful ingredients such as parabens can cause many types of cancer. But if you have PCOS, it is especially important to be wary of what you put in and on your body. You must especially avoid endocrine disruptors, which are chemicals that block natural hormone response, according to Healthline. They often mimic female and male sex hormones, which cause confusion in your reproductive system. They also increase PCOS symptoms. Endocrine disruptors include dioxins, phthalates, pesticides, BPA, and glycol ethers. These chemicals are most often found in soaps and body washes, makeup, and canned and packaged foods.
