As per a study, the pandemic caused by Covid-19 resulted in a six-to-eight fold increase in rates of intimate partner aggression.
The experimental study, published in the journal ‘Psychology of Violence’, by Georgia State University researchers found that the lockdown restrictions led by the Covid-19 pandemic have resulted in increased rates of physical and psychological aggression among couples.
Physical aggression increased from two acts per year to 15 acts per year. Psychological aggression increased from 16 acts per year to 96 acts per year.
“If you think about it, that [increase] represents an enormous shift in people’s day-to-day lives,” said the study’s lead author Dominic Parrott, professor of psychology and director of the Centre for Research on Interpersonal Violence.
Can PCOS affect your sex life?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance and it is common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or male hormone (androgen) levels.
The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.
A study found that 99 per cent of participants reported issues with sexual desire and/or arousal.
Also, another study in 2011 conducted in Sweden stated that women with PCOS reported decreased satisfaction with their sex life.
The best way to treat PCOS naturally is to eat plenty of leafy greens, avoiding sugar and carbs as much as possible, exercising regularly but stick to low-impact workouts like yoga and pilates. Also, get plenty of quality sleep.
