I Am In Charge of PCOS and My Life

Hello my name is Martine. PCOS has been part of my life for the longest. I had my first child trough IVF, my first round worked.

I changed my lifestyle, eat organic, go low on the carbs but not to the point of frustration!!! Very important; it is a lifetime change to reverse this demon, LOL LOL!

But so far include exercise in your program, don't go heavy lifting , or else, just be gentle on your body,
Pilates, yoga, walking, because remember, you have testosterone in your system!!! Max of 30 minutes 4 times a week, (walking the dog, going for a bike ride, do something fun to stick to it). Now I am preparing for my second child. Hopefully I will succeed.

I take vitex, Glucophage, B-50, probiotics, maca juice, green powder, and lemon water to alkalinize my system.

I am 39 and hoping to have a baby this year. I went to my Endo, and after stimulation could not ovulate. She told me to lose a bit more weight and try one more time.

Sooooo…I am eating right and going Ayurvedic to ease that process in my body:)

Good luck to all!!!!!

Losing a little more weight loss is a good idea
by: PCOS site editor

According to medical studies, even weight loss of 5%-10% in women who have PCOS can be sufficient to induce ovulation.

Body fat produces a lot of hormones and other messengers that mess up your overall hormone balance. So the less excess fat you have, the more likely your hormones will be in better balance and thus lead to increased chances of ovulation and possible pregnancy.

Don't forget to get a vitamin D test. If you are low in vitamin D, you will be difficult to have a normal cycle.
