PCOS, Low GI Diet, Husband Is Skeptical

by Ersula

I'm so grateful to all of you for your stories.

I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 20 and I too was passed around to doctors who had no knowledge on the subject.

I was also told to use birth control pills to regulate my period but I was reluctant because I knew that I wanted to have kids one day.

Now, nine years later, I am married and my husband and I want desperately to have children.

I still have no answers on my condition other than to either stay on birth control or take Clomid.

I was previously on the low GI diet before I got married and it helped regulate my cycles a lot and I lost a significant amount of weight.

Now, I am married and have been off of the diet for a year because my husband is a chef and it is difficult to follow a strict diet with him :)

I am hoping to gain some discipline and get back on my diet so that I can show him how it will help us conceive (he's a skeptic and not totally sold on the idea of the Low GI diet).

Wish me luck :)

Editor's comments: I know you can get back on track! The low GI diet is a great place to start. A more advanced (and more difficult) diet is this one: The Natural Diet Solution for PCOS and Infertility e-book.

If your husband wants to start a family as badly as you do, ask him to support you in your efforts to control your diet. Have him use his imagination to improve the recipes in the above ebook, or make your low GI diet more fun to eat. And tell him to either put his skepticism "on hold", or find some research evidence to support his skepticism.

If you're not ovulating, get a vitamin D test from your doctor. If low, take supplemental vitamin D.

Vitex (chaste tree berry) extract can be helpful for restoring a cycle. Also d-pinitol or inositol. You can find out more in our online store or supplements pages.
