All About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
« on: September 25, 2007, 03:28:12 pm »

I found out that I have PCOS and that it will be difficult for me to get pregnant again.  Aside from taking metformin, what can I do to reverse it?

Thanks so much!

you may want to consult your OB gyne for that matter. i have an office mate who also have a PCOS. I think she was given a provera for her cycle to be normal. your OB will give you  and your husband contact dates once  your cycle regulates. Luckily my officemate got pregnant during the treatment.hope ive answered your query.

Hi Daphne!

I was exactly like that a few months ago.   Instead of taking metformin, my doctor from the US advised that I take 200mcg of Chromium Picolinate and exercise.   I haven't even finished the bottle from Healthy Options ... Lo and behold, I am now almost 3 months pregnant.

Good Luck!

Hello, Mommies!

Just want to give you an update on my quest for my second pregnancy.  Last October 17, I found out that I was already 9 weeks pregnant.  Unfortunately, the ultrasound saw that it was an ectopic pregnancy, my baby was in my right fallopian tube and was about to erupt.  So that same day, the doctor operated on me and removed my little one (now I know how a caesarian delivery feels like).

I saw the heartbeat on the monitor and I couldn't help but feel really sad by what happened.  I was really looking forward to being preggy again because my son is turning 4 already and he seems to want a little brother.  Same with my husband who wanted another son.

But I know that the Lord has a will for me and will give me another little one soon(doesn't really matter if it will be a boy or girl actually since I'm not picky).  Just hope and pray that it will be before I turn 32 (I'm 30 now).

God bless everyone!

My PCOS was healed when I changed my diet.  One of the causes of PCOS is the high amount of insulin in the blood (which should be absorbed) and is one of the causes of our gaining weight.  Ask a dietitian on what foods - high in protein - are good for you and lessen your intake of high carbo foods.

What I did was I increased my intake of fish, veggies, tofu and soya milk and increased exercise (at least 3x a week I did 2 kinds of exercises).  These helped bring down my insulin level (along with a bit of help from a hypo-glycemic tablet) and I got preggy on the 6th month.

Hope this helps.  God bless.

i have PCOs too prior to getting pregnant last 2006. i remember my ob, dra. arlene bravo and i performed an ovulation process.. and it did work! one shot lang and i conceived. ;)

ask your doctor too! most of my friends transferred to my ob all for the same reason that they wanted to get pregnant. and they all did. we are all mommies now. i think 3-4 friends of mine conceived after i referred them to my ob.
