If your doctor told you that getting pregnant with PCOS was impossible, he was wrong. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a complex condition that affects the fertility, but its root cause is a hormone imbalance.
PCOS is characterized by: irregular, excessive or no menstrual period, a lack of ovulation, poor quality eggs, and sometimes miscarriages. There are other symptoms that don't directly affect the fertility, but are a sign that the hormones are out of balance. These include: high blood sugar, 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 they don't have a significant role in the menstrual cycle or female fertility. The excess androgens provide an unhealthy environment for eggs to form, and can prevent menstruation and ovulation from occurring regularly.
Most medical treatments focus around the oral contraceptive pill, increasing the dose to re-establish the hormone balance between progesterone and oestrogen. There are side effects associated with contraceptive pills, and they are not recommended for women who want to conceive, because their primary role is to stop conception.
The natural approach offers a way to get pregnant with PCOS, while improving your general health. The first step is to improve your diet to lose weight, and increase your intake of fresh organic wholefoods, 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 like "Crave-Ex".
Next detoxification 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 that can accelerate your rate of detoxification, balance your hormones and improve your fertility.
There are herbs that help ovarian cysts, and help to balance the hormones and stimulate ovulation. I have been using "CystClear" for about 18 months in my clinic, and I am getting some very good results. My clients with PCOS have started to menstruate more regularly, they have lost weight, regained their feminine figures, and some have now become pregnant.
