What Foods To Eat And To Avoid With PCOS.

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

So I have been trying to lose weight recently and I have failed quite miserably. It turns out I have been eating the wrong foods.

I have done quite a bit of research and I found some quite helpful pages. I know I'm not alone in the food department so I thought I'd give you lovely ladies an insight to what to eat and what to avoid.

Foods to add:

1. High fiber vegetables (cauliflower, peppers, almonds, berries, sweet potato)

2. Lean protein (chicken, fish, tofu)

3. Anti-inflamatory foods… read more

Did you cut out all carbs? Or just replaced with gluten free options. Like rice, oats etc?

Any Advise For Subduing Or Getting Rid Of Hirsutism?

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

My hormones are balanced but I still deal with hirsutism on a daily basis. So much so that I shave (my face) every day, if not twice a day.

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone tried Ovasitol? It claims to be "a high quality, medical-grade supplement that combines both myo and d-chiro-inositol that mimic’s the body’s own ratio" and boasts it will " improve insulin sensitivity, restore hormone balance, improve ovulation and egg quality in women with PCOS."

I just ordered some and have yet to try it. Simply looking for feedback. Any reviews from your own personal experience with it would be greatly appreciated.

I find my symtoms are better with 1200mg of DCI (d-chiro-inositol) only
Theres a local company that makes 600mg capsules so I take 2. For me it's better than having to drink all that powder. Not TTC… read more

Abnormal Bleeding !

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hello Everyone!

Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?

Thank you,

A myPCOSteam Member

So ive been taking Myo-inositol (Brand name: Myova) for about a month now. Is anyone else on this? Did it have any effect/help with PCOS? How long did it take to have an effect? And did you conceive whilst taking it? (:

Thank you!

A myPCOSteam Member

I took 9g daily for about 6 months but i didn't notice any changes. No weight loss or periods like it is said to cause.

Is there anyone who has low libido? I feel like I do but I act like I dont to pleasure my partner. Often times Idont want him to grab me or anything. What do you ladies do to fix that?

A myPCOSteam Member
