My OB diagnosed me with PCOS in May 2010. Not knowing what that was, I read a bit about it, went back to the OB/GYN and was told that I had two options - get back on birth control pills or be referred to Reproductive Endocrinology if I wanted to conceive. That was it. I was so saddened. My OB/GYN did a panel of tests - of which a few came back irregular: my thyroid and my testosterone. For my thyroid, I went to my general practitioner, who diagnosed me with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I am currently taking a thyroid pill every morning to bring those levels down. For my testosterone, instead of taking Metformin, I decided to take the natural approach. I read 'Fertility, Cycles and Nutrition' by Marilyn Shannon, began to heed her advice about diet modification, and I began to look into supplements. I started looking for supplements online and at our local whole foods stores, found the best deals here at iHerb.com, and these are the ones I've decided to stick with: Vitex, Lifetime prenatal, and an Omega 3 supplement.
1. Nature's Way Vitex Fruit 400 mg 100 capsules
2. LifeTime Professional Prenatal Formula 180 Tablets
3. Natural Factors RxOmega 3 Factors EPA400mg DHA200mg 240 Softgels
I currently take 3 Vitex a day, 3 prenatals, and 2 omega 3s. I will be dropping my Vitex to 2 a day soon, and after 3 months of taking it, I will only need to take 1 a day. For the prenatals, I take 3 a day (half-dosage.... don't need the full dosage since I'm not pregnant).
RESULTS: After a 75 day cycle, I ovulated and had my period. WAHOO! And I just ovulated again and therefore am expecting my period after a 30 day cycle. This is nothing short of a miracle!
If you are looking for something to help with balancing your hormones, I would highly recommend Vitex! Just don't get discouraged if you don't see changes after a month. It really does take 2-3 months to see a difference. God is good, and I'm so thankful for this natural approach to better health.
