I was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago. Although it is inherited from my mom, she never told me nothing. What a bummer! Til now, 37 years of my life, going crazy with all the pills, and crap and never-ending doctors visits.
What I did not know now should have been what I was supposed to know earlier. But I just did not take note to believe that this was a serious diagnosis for me.
I started gaining weight not knowing what was going on with my body. I always thought that I was pregnant, which I was not.
So I thought to get treatments like metformin, then my spouse went to get checked at the infertility clinic, to get pregnant as well did the Clomid deal was not fortunate.
Finally I just said forget it.
I am gonna see how can I get my period every month. Forget about being pregnant. I just wanna try something different, so I just got fed up and started looking into it online.
I found this site along with others as well, but this site interested me the most.
I called first to check what is a good idea for getting started and the gentlemen (I forgot the name) told me this should be a good way to start: exercising, losing weight, and taking pinitol 600 with vitex.
I ordered them.
It's been 3 weeks and 3 days. I started to see results soon after I started. I know it should take longer but I guess my body responded to it so fast that I drastically saw results. I don't know what the next month will be and whether I do ovulate. I am still experimenting with my body.
The best thing I can say is always LISTEN TO UR BODY.
I have lost 14 pounds to as well.
So I AM VERY HAPPY TO SEE THE NEXT ADVENTURE TO MY OWN WORLD, BODY AND SOUL...THANKS ALOT U GUYS.
Editor's comments: Congratulations, Michelle! That's exciting news! Glad to hear the supplements helped you to get a period.
Have you increased your exercise? Don't forget…fat is burned mostly in the muscle cells. The more active your muscle cells are, the more fat they can burn.
Another success tip: you can help yourself to normalize your hormones and lose more weight if you will increase your consumption of fresh or frozen vegetables. It's recommended to have five servings a day!
Success tip #2: Stay away from ALL soft drinks. Drink water instead. Or green tea or herbal teas. If you have a problem with hair loss or hirsutism (facial, body hair), spearmint tea can be helpful.
Continue with your positive attitude. A positive attitude will carry you through the inevitable ups and downs along the way. But if you are persistent with good health practices, you will be absolutely amazed on the good results you will get.
When you are ready to do more work on improving your diet, I recommend you get this PCOS diet e-book. It is based on numerous medical studies showing that diet modifications can reduce PCOS-related problems and help to restore fertility.
