Battling PCOS and Learn How to Deal with It

Part 1:

Hi, my name is Christina, and this is the beginning of my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) expedition to motherhood. I never expected to have a hard time with fertility. In fact, I thought getting pregnant would come naturally, or easily. I thought my cycles were normal despite how heavy and frequent they were at times. But, after getting married last year, my husband and I found that wasn’t the case. I recently took a saliva hormone test and discovered I, in fact, have PCOS… it was a blow I somewhat suspected, but was not ready to confirm.

Cold Processed Cycle Balance CreamGoing back to a little over a year ago, I contacted Brenda in hopes of regulating my cycle because I was having a lot of breakthrough bleeding in between cycles that frustrated me beyond lengths. I decided to try Cycle Balance Natural Progesterone Cream and I instantly fell in love!! Due to a hormonal imbalance, I also wanted to try the Natural Female Hormone Balance Supplement at Beyond Fertility Shop and currently I take two capsules a day ( One in the morning and once at night ). My cycles have been more regular and I have more control over the breakthrough bleeding. When my husband and I decided to begin trying to conceive we also both decided to do a cleanse which included Psyllium Seed Husk Powder, Bentonite Clay, and 7 Day Detox Cleanse.

I now follow a Paleo template (I despise the word diet, template allows for a bit more flexibility), and I have tried to add at least 35 grams of fiber a day as well. (Honestly, I don’t miss potatoes and carbohydrates as much as I thought I might.) To help me reach my fiber goal, I continue to include Psyllium Husk to my template in the morning. Also, I have begun working out on a regular basis to lose weight.

The past few months have at times been emotionally draining. I fight every month knowing I still have a lot of work to accomplish. Every time a new pregnancy announcement shows up in a social media feed, or a new baby is brought into this world I feel guilty having even the slightest bit of jealousy towards the parents. In the end, I know that I am improving my health and well-being, and building a healthier lifestyle for my family. I am ready for whatever God has in store for my husband and me.

Part 2:

Natural Health Affiliate ProgramSo I have moved several states south lately, and because of the move, I have absolutely slacked in keeping on track with my fertility plans. I have just recently started tracking my Basal Body Temperature (BBT) again and need to restart the Paleo template.

I have still been taking the Female Hormone Balance because my husband and I have noticed a difference when I do not take it. Since I have not had a menstrual cycle in a few months ( currently on cycle day 130… yes you read that correctly ), I have not used any progesterone cream or progesterone oil (HUGE fan of the oil!).

I have also recently decided to try a new product Brenda has available called Chrysin Max Best Natural Aromatase Inhibitor. I will keep everyone posted on any differences I notice as I begin to add this to my template as well. If I have researched correctly it should help balance my estrogen and testosterone levels. I have felt so broken lately but I am optimistic getting back on track will help.

Part 3:

So excited! Since using Chrysin Max and DIM 150 I am having periods every month like clockwork. I am also taking Ayurvedic Fertility Booster every day and using my Cycle Balance Progesterone Oil the last 2 weeks of every cycle. Stay tuned…
