The study, surveying over 1,300 women in April 2021, found that the Covid-19 pandemic-related stress and sleep disturbance impacts menstrual cycles.

Proving how mental health has been impacted by significant changes to our daily lifestyle, eating and exercise habits, the study reveals how stress affects hormone levels, as well as causing sleep and body weight disturbances.

“Stress hormones can directly inhibit the release of sex hormones, while sleep disturbances are closely linked to infertility and increased belly fat is also associated with menstrual dysfunction,” according to the source.
