Here is a little what I have experienced
1. weight loss - I now weigh a healthy 135lbs at 5'6." I am healthy, strong, and have never felt better.
2. clearer skin- My skin looks great! I continue to have breakouts when I am about to start my period, but that is normal for many women.
3. Better ranging cycles- Since beginning pregnitude my cycles have stayed consistently in the 30-39 day range. I would say that is a significant improvement from 50-80 days, wouldn't you!?
4. I did not conceive a baby. I know it is marketed towards women TTC. DH and I did not prevent pregnancy. We did BD around O time consistently (even though we technically weren't TTC). Given our diagnosis of IF (DH sperm cannot penetrate my eggs w/out ICSI), I am not surprised.
My last cycle on Pregnitude during my sixth month commitment was unfortunately my longest at 39 days. I had committed to take solely Pregnitude during that duration. However, since I felt my cycles lengthening again I decided to add a few more supplements to my regimen...
-Cinnamon 2000mg (helps control blood sugar)
-Vit D 5000iu (I was previously taking only 2000iu)
-Chromium 800mg (helps with insulin resistance)
-a whole foods multivitamin (I have always taken)
With the addition of these supplements, I am happy to report I just started AF today and had a 31 day cycle last month! Yes, that is a lot of supplements. However, I feel that it beats taking a medication for the rest of my life. I feel great!
After I finish off the rest of my Pregnitude. I plan to buy Myo-inositol by itself. It is cheaper. Buying pregnitude is great marketing geared towards women TTC. I have found a ton of supplements for great prices on PuritonsPride.com They are constantly having great deals.
I hope this gives many of you success with your battle with PCOS, as it did for me!
