Any advice for getting some energy without caffeine?

Any advice for getting some energy without caffeine?

I'm trying to get a better sleep but my job is draining so I often lack energy by as early as 11am! I grab a chocolate bar for a boost but I know it's not helping things. Does everyone still drink coffee or have you found alternatives that help with low energy. I have a lot on my plate right now so just need to get through the day. Thanks for any tips!

Trying to get pregnant after birth control pills

Trying to get pregnant after birth control pills

I had to go on bc pills because my af was Ridiculously heavy and would last for over a month. Longest was 2 months. I ended up losing so much blood I was almost in need of a blood transfusion. Fast forward like 4 months later on the bcp of course I have decent periods but I want to get pregnant next year. Any insight on getting off of the pills and trying? I plan to use at least 10 more pounds to help me. I currently weigh 150lbs and im like 5'3

Cycle and Increase in Symptoms

Cycle and Increase in Symptoms

I am brand new to this so bare with me, I have a lot of questions. Right now though my main question is this:
If you have PCOS, is the follicular/ovulation phase of your cycle particularly hard on you? If so does it get better after that phase?
The week after my period stops I have migraines, upset stomach, depression, horrible anxiety, and bloating/cramps.
