evening primrose oil?

evening primrose oil?

Anyone use this? I just read about it briefly online and am wondering if it's worth trying. Sounds like a more natural way to combat some of the pcos symptoms (acne, inflamation, hormonal symptoms, bloating, night sweats, etc).

Tracking progress?

Tracking progress?

I’m still fairly new to my PCOS journey and because of where I was in life, I wasn’t overly focused on it.

However, I’m trying to start really focusing on it and for me I like to track things to see how I’m improving. What do you think is important to track? What should I look for?

White discharge, anyone?

White discharge, anyone?

Hi team,
I keep getting white discharge. It’s not super thick, it doesn’t have an odor, and is really gooey/stretchy.

Any ideas? Is it normal or not so normal? Could it be PCOS or endometriosis related?

Took Clomid

Took Clomid

So I don’t have regular periods so my doctor told me take Clomid after cycle day 34 and start over and make it cycle day 5 and so on. Well as you know after you take Clomid you’re supposed to start trying to make a baby.. fast forward few days I started spotting which eventually turned into my period. My question is can I still ovulate in my period??

Yes, there is a potential to get pregnant at any time, including during your period. Ovulation is usually higher after your period.

I am just wondering if anyone else has a completely normal period?

Mine has always been very predictable, but I am 31 next month and have never even had a pregnancy scare. I've never used birth control either.
