By then, I had been officially diagnosed with PCOS. I also had some kidney problems and had been told by two different doctors that having a baby would not likely happen. We tried to conceive naturally for about 6 months. I did not have a single period during that time. I was bloated and miserable!
After 6 months, my doctor gave me Provera and Clomid. I was pregnant a month later. After our daughter was born, I went back on the pill. Doctors prescribe the pill to treat PCOS, but really, it just masks the symptoms. Sure, my period was regular, but I never ovulated. I never felt balanced, but I didn’t know I had any other options. We decided to have our second baby – I went back on Clomid and a year later our son was born.
We thought we were finished having children at that point. I went back on the pill for about a year, but still just felt like birth control was covering up my PCOS symptoms. I felt tired, sluggish, and gained some weight, particularly around my mid-section.
Although I only used Clomid twice, two months total to conceive, I felt so much better during those times. I started researching online for natural ways to boost ovulation (not to have another baby at this point, just to try to mimic how I felt with Clomid). I found Insulite Health PCOS system, read the testimonials, and decided to give it a try. I even printed out the list of supplement ingredients and asked my OB-GYN to look them over. She gave me her blessing and I committed to the program.
Although my diet had always been relatively healthy, I gave up white flour/breads (cereal was tough). Within a few weeks of using following the plan, I felt significantly better. My energy levels were soaring and I was losing weight.
I began using the system in the spring. By July, I had lost 15 pounds and was starting to have periods again. (Prior to using the system, I had not had a period without the pill since I was about 15 years old!). Even though I did not have periods every month, I still felt better and knew the system was working.
In August, I discovered I was pregnant- surprise baby #3! Never in a million years did we think we would conceive!!!! I stopped using the supplements while I was pregnant, but figured I would start them again after our baby was born. Much to my surprise, I had very regular periods (every 34 days to be exact) following the birth of our third child.
Now, four years later, I’m back on the system having skipped a month here and there. I started using the system about 4 weeks ago and have already lost 8 pounds (not even trying to lose weight!). My husband and I are runners- we just ran our 5th half marathon and we have three young children.
I truly believe this system helps me stay healthy from the inside out, so that my body can keep up with the demands I place on it!
I would absolutely recommend this system to anyone with PCOS, whether you’re just looking to get healthy, have regular periods, or even conceive. If you follow the plan, it will work for you!”
