Hi Feleshia, I am kinda the same boat as you ttc. it is so frustrating seeing every one around popping out kids like no tomorrow n there I am with a big ol smile saying congrats when all I want to do is cry.... sorry didn't mean to add more stress lol... uggh but for reals... don't NO ONE know what to do for PCOS but shove pills down your throat. I for one dislike pills. I try not to take any if at all possible. So I went online n have been doing research. There are a few natural products to try. I am currently not ttc I was. But I have kinda given up. But anyway check out vitex/chasteberry. And also I was in Mexico and a woman told me about an ol folk tale of blending an aloe vera plant and drinking it. as far as the dosage I have no idea. But I am going to try it. I just planted a few in the garden once they get bigger I will try it. I have also looked online about it and most sites say its good for insulin so why not try.
Well good luck, wish you the best in ttc. Hope some of this helped.View Thread
I too have pcos, was diagnosed in 2005. I have been bleeding for the past 5 months NONE stop. OMW how annoying is it that NO doctor knows what is going on with us. However, I have done my own research as although I have not yet tried it myself. I have found that ALOE VERA gel works for PCOS. So I planted a few plants in the garden and am going to try it once they are big enough to cut. I have see you can buy the gel but as with ALL homeopathic remedies organic or natural is the best.
For some of you women that want to try to conceive you can also try chasteberry or vitex. There are a lot of herbs that help. Maybe go to a Chinese store and ask them what they recommend. Good luck to all n know that you are NOT alone. There are many of us out there. Make sure you do your research and I pray the best for you all.View Thread
