Have you read Jenn's amazing PCOS story?

Jenn had normal cycles starting at age 13 until age 22 when she started birth control pills.  When she stopped the birth control pills, her period did not come back.

Her doctor diagnosed her as having polycystic ovary syndrome, even though Jenn was thin and didn't have all the symptoms.

Jenn Did 'All the Right Things'

Jenn ate a healthy, low-glycemic diet.  She exercised.  She took supplements.

Jenn was doing everything right.  Still no ovulation and no baby.

Fortunately, Jenn has an identical twin sister, who also stopped the pill. Like Jenn, her sister also consumed a healthy diet and exercised.

The two women had identical genes and a very similar diet and lifestyle.

The difference was that Jenn's sister had no trouble ovulating after getting off the pill.  But Jenn could not ovulate.

The two sisters sat down to analyze their lives in detail to try to find out why identical twins with identical genes and such a similar lifestyle would have ovaries that behave so differently.

Finally, they hit upon something. Jenn's sister was a sun bather but Jenn avoided the sun and had pale skin.  Since it was May, Jenn decided to lay out in the sun with her sister.

One month later, she ovulated!  Sunlight helps the body to manufacture vitamin D.  In addition to the 600 IU of vitamin D she was already taking in the d-pinitol formula, she started taking an additional 2,000 IU of vitamin D.  Apparently, vitamin D was the "missing link" to Jenn's ability to ovulate.

Jenn continued with a normal cycle and became pregnant eight months later!

What Are the Lessons from Jenn's PCOS Story?

  • Your environment is a determining factor in how successful you are in dealing with polycystic ovary syndrome and infertility.  This includes the food you eat, the water you drink, your physical activity, the people you associate with, your physical environment and exposure to pollution, and your general lifestyle.

  • Nutritional supplements play a role in getting the results you want but it's not always clear which supplements would be most effective or which dosage would be most effective.  There is some trial and error involved.

  • Never give up! Persist with exploring treatment options beyond pharmaceuticals. In Jenn's case, she did not need more birth control pills or metformin or other drugs.  What she needed was more vitamin D.

  • Humans have been exposed to daily sunlight for hundreds of thousands of years.  Avoidance of exposure to sunlight will cause you to become unhealthy.  So if you stay indoors most of the time and shield yourself from the sun when outside, you may be holding yourself back from improved health. 

Remember, vitamin D is a powerful hormone.  You need it for PCOS and your overall health.
