Natural Remedies for PCOS Getting Pregnant

A diagnosis of PCOS, or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is a lot to absorb. One of the most important effects the condition has on you is to make it harder for you to get pregnant, which can be very distressing. Fortunately, for many, PCOS doesn’t mean pregnancy is impossible, merely more of a challenge.

While there are medications and procedures that can help you to get pregnant, even with the problems that PCOS causes, they come with side-effects and discomfort that can make it hard to prefer them as a first choice.

Fortunately, there are also natural remedies you can bring to bear that can help to mitigate the effects of PCOS and significantly improve your chances of getting pregnant when you have the condition. It’s well worth understanding what these are, and putting them into practice before – or as well as – prescribed solutions from your doctor.

Supplements

There are lots of fertility supplements on the market, but they don’t all specifically address the issues caused by PCOS. One that does – or appears to for a lot of women – is Inositol. This is a vitamin-like compound that is found in some foods. It’s a component of your body’s cell walls, but it also helps you use insulin effectively. As PCOS is driven by your body producing too much insulin, this means Inositol can help to reduce your levels of the hormone, and reduce the other symptoms of the condition. This includes restoring a more regular ovulatory cycle, and boosting the quality the eggs ovulated. This gives you more chances to conceive, and makes it more likely that the egg will be fertilised successfully.

Diet and Lifestyle

As PCOS is driven by the insulin in your system, anything you can do to control your insulin levels can affect your PCOS symptoms. One thing that can be effective is to move to a low GI diet. The Glycaemic Index measures how many sugars are in foods – or how quickly they break down into sugar. If you choose a diet with more wholegrain foods and less processed carbohydrates, you slow down the release of sugar into your bloodstream. This in turn can help to reduce big peaks of insulin production, and lower your overall insulin levels.

If you pair a low GI diet with inositol supplements and moderate exercise, you can see some dramatic effects on how much insulin you produce, some appreciable reduction of the grip PCOS has on your body and menstrual cycle.
