    I have to say I find all this information very informative! I was diagnosed with pcos 8 years ago with not so much as things to help or even an explaination on what this thing I have is. My husband and I have been ttc for the last 3 years and so far nothing. We have decided to take a small break from ttc for a few months so I can get my diet well enough that if I got pregnant I could sustain us both nutrionally cause I cant do that now for myself. I know diet is a main component to pcos but I barely eat anything. I’m never hungry which makes me wonder if I have a thyroid problem. Thanks for all the informative information and you will definately have a customer when I feel Im ready again. TY

    • Hi Rebecca!

      We are thankful to offer helpful information and hope!

      Have you discussed not being hungry with your doctor or a nutritionist? This may help! Further testing may be necessary to help determine a cause whether physical or emotional. Have you considered trying digestive bitters before a meal?

      One great way to consume amazing fertility foods and nutrients are Fertility Smoothies. This could be one way to approach beginning to eat better. Consider learning more from our guide to PCOS Fertility Smoothies. Do also consider a whole food multivitamin, such as Fertile Woman One Daily, and quality omega supplement like Cod Liver Oil as you begin to make dietary changes.

      I have heard so many healthcare practitioners, both medical and natural, who have seen PCOS remedied from dietary changes alone. If we might offer more specific support taking into account your needs, we would be happy to work with you through a Fertility Consultation.

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      Just to update this comment. I changed my diet completely was consuming a significant amount of calories a day I jumped from consuming about 400 a day to 1300 a day and December 15,2016 I found out I was pregnant unfortunately we lost it a week after finding out but that i had been pregnant for 8 weeks and never knew it. Im holding onto hope that we get our baby soon, we got pregnant and even though we lost it, thats the first step to get our miracle baby after a doctor once told me it would be next to impossible. Diet is more important than anyone thinks and this example just shows that.

    • Dear Rebecca,

      I am so sorry for your loss, but so happy for the changes you’ve seen! Please do keep hope! <>

    • Dear Naomi,

      Have you talked to your doctor about why this is happening? Did your diet or exercise routines change after marriage? Did you gain weight? Is there any indication of infection or STI? Learn about natural remedies to help treat menstrual cramping when it is happening, remedies and mind/body practices for long-term menstrual cramp relief in our guide Natural Remedies for Painful Menstruation.
