IVF Follicles not growing...

Hello, I was wondering if there are alternatives to Spironolactone?

I have naturally low blood pressure, and when I took Spironolactone, it made me quite dizzy and faint-like. Are there any other prescriptions used to combat facial hair?

How many women have experienced a premature birth, and was it directly related to your PCOS?

Back in 2009, I was 24, healthier, weighed less than I do now, and I got pregnant with my son. He was born at 26 weeks gestation. I developed rapid onset… read more

No Periods

Anyone else NEVER get a period?

I only do when I take Provera.

I have already tried Metformin, Vitex, weight loss, exercise, clean eating. Still have never had a cycle on my own.

I just started taking inositol, so I'll give that a shot for a few months to see if that helps at all. Any other ideas? Is there anything you have been able to do to naturally get a period?

Do I need to avoid all Carbs for life?

Hi, I have been diagnosed with PCOS and Interstitial Cystitis a 4 months ago. At my Doctors suggestion I have eliminated all carbs completely from my diet for about 3 months now.
