Does extreme stress play a role in causing premature ovarian failure?

Does extreme stress play a role in causing premature ovarian failure?

No: Unfortunately premature ovarian failure is genetically controlled. It's helpful to know when your mother went through menopause since one may pattern after their mother in terms of timing.

I'm told i prob have adrenal fatigue, and high impact workouts are no-no's. What are some good low impact exercises to get me in shape safely?

I'm told i prob have adrenal fatigue, and high impact workouts are no-no's. What are some good low impact exercises to get me in shape safely?

NOT low-impact but:: With adrenal fatigue avoid aerobic exercise at first; if you feel tired the day after exercise you've overdone it. Do a "body sculpting" program of light calisthenics ; weight lifting, using very low resistance(small weights) ; many repetitions, involving the whole-body. This can be accomplished in exercise classes, with exercise machines, or with free weights. See http://bit.Ly/1ere6h for more. ...Read more
