Hi my name is Chanel I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2019 but I’ve been dealing with this issue for years. I’ve been taking supplements but are there any I should stay away some and some I should look into? Is there any specialist I should see? I feel like I’m at a point where nothing is happening but I still feel so off. Any tips or help would be great.

      I’ll definitely look into seeing an reproductive Endocrinologist. I actually take zinc now as just a health thing, I have the powder and I add it to my smoothies every morning. I wanted to look into inositol as well cause I heard good things about it. I’m looking into seeing a dietitian as well who knows about PCOS. Thank you all for the input I will definitely be looking into these things. ❤️

      Yes! On top of immunity purposes it helps for reducing hair loss and hirsutism and helps with insulin resistance!

      I also use zinc for immunity purposes! Had no idea it could be good for PCOS

      Hello! I’ve seen amazing changes using inositol. A high quality omega, magnesium glycinate, and zinc are also in my daily regimen and have seen positive changes!

      Hello! For PCOS I would recommend seeing a reproductive endrocrinologist. You will probably need a reference primary care provider. There are a variety of medications they can put you on depending on your lab results. Also in terms of supplements I think it will depend on your lab results as well. But I do a combination of fish oil, magnesium, and a drink called RelaxMax. You can buy the generic version on Amazon. I’m not sure why exactly but the combination of these things made my testosterone drop 20 points. I have been in the same boat as you for years, it’s a miserable condition especially when you don’t know what to do about it. Some doctors can be very unhelpful. Good luck and let me know if you ever want to chat. ❤️
