Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is something everyone needs to know about…
Not only because it affects a large number of women… between 5-10% of premenopausal women in the US.
But because it is not often recognized or handled properly, which is something very personal to me.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in my late 20’s after years of extremely irregular period with heavy bleeding and was told repeatedly to just “go on birth control” to handle it.
And when the time came that I wanted to get pregnant, I was told that would likely never happen without meds or treatments and I was given no other option…
Maybe you’ve been told the same because It’s estimated between 70-80% of women with PCOS struggle with fertility.
But what I found in my own journey is that natural approaches can give you options that can be even more effective than meds at reducing symptoms or even reversing the syndrome.
And that is exactly what it did for me.
By identifying inflammatory triggers in my body, such as poor gut health, low nutrient levels, and foods I should have not been eating… I was able to go from 100+ day cycles…
To consistent, healthy cycles.
I felt amazing… I had more energy, and my digestion and mood improved.
And not only that…
I have been able to conceive 2 children naturally.
What they told me I had little hope of doing.
Don’t get me wrong, PCOS can be a STRUGGLE. It is something I have to support continually every single day for my health.
But once I figured out what my body needed and what was contributing to my specific response to the syndrome…
I now have a sustainable approach I can use forever.
If you or someone you know is struggling with PCOS please support them.
It can be frustrating, difficult, and confusing…
But also know that we PCOCysters 😉 have options that can help you build the family you dream of and stay healthy for life.
