If your doctor told you that getting pregnant with PCOS was impossible, you were wrong. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex condition that affects fertility, but its root cause is a hormonal imbalance.
PCOS is characterized by: irregular, excessive, or no menstrual periods, lack of ovulation, poor-quality eggs, and sometimes miscarriages. There are other symptoms that do not directly affect fertility, but are a sign that hormones are out of balance. These include: high blood sugar levels, adult acne, excess body and facial hair, excessive hair loss, and obesity with a more masculine body shape.
Most women have high levels of estrogen and progesterone, but women with PCOS also have high levels of androgens. Androgens are male hormones and do not play a significant role in the menstrual cycle or female fertility. Excess androgens provide an unhealthy environment for eggs to form and can prevent menstruation and ovulation from occurring regularly.
Most medical treatments focus on the oral contraceptive pill, increasing the dose to restore the hormonal balance between progesterone and estrogen. There are side effects associated with birth control pills and they are not recommended for women who want to conceive, because their main function is to stop conception.
The natural approach offers a way to get pregnant with PCOS, while also improving your overall health. The first step is to improve your diet to lose weight, increase your intake of fresh organic whole foods, and avoid foods with a high glycemic index. You can take herbal remedies to increase your weight loss, such as “Wulong-Oolong tea” or carbohydrate blockers such as “Crave-Ex.”
The next detox is important, so you will need to avoid the usual chemicals that make your condition worse. These are nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, and refined sugar. There are also body cleanses you can do to speed up your detox rate, balance your hormones, and improve your fertility.
There are herbs that help ovarian cysts and help balance hormones and stimulate ovulation. I have been using “CystClear” for about 18 months in my clinic and I am getting very good results. My clients with PCOS have started menstruating more regularly, lost weight, regained their feminine figure, and some have now become pregnant.
