I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 16. The best answer at the time was birth control pills, so that’s what I took. I graduated and moved away from home not long after and continued to take birth control pills until spring 2009 when I decided I no longer wanted to remain on the pill.
The talk of having a baby was an unsure subject, we hadn’t really tried any meds… but I knew I was not only dealing with PCOS but also endometriosis. My hopes for having children were slim, yet my husband’s desire was strong. Going off the pill was scary. I didn’t know what else I could do to treat PCOS and had been out of contact with my previous doctor. It was devastating emotionally, but that was when I found the Insulite PCOS System online and found hope. My goal was to get my body back in health and then try to get pregnant. I have had so many issues with light and irregular periods most of my life that I wasn’t even sure if I was ovulating. I did some research on it and was planning on starting a natural family plan when I found out I was pregnant. I had been on the Insulite PCOS System for two months. It was only two months off of the pill as well. My husband and I were a little shocked at how quickly things happened, but are thrilled to have a new addition to our family!
I remember I had started to feel better, although I don’t think I was on long enough to notice any specific relief in symptoms. I definitely believe this was due to the Insulite PCOS System. I don’t believe I would have been able to get pregnant as easily had it not been for the Insulite PCOS System. Thanks to Insulite we have the most beautiful little girl and have been saved much heartache and medical expense.
Once I am through breastfeeding, I hope to be able to go back onto the entire System and continue to heal my body.
