Im Bek and I'm brand new to this site and forum! Just wanting to get some personal stories and hints from experience with PCOS and conceiving somewhat naturally.
I'm nearly 21 years old and I got diagnosed with PCOS when I first started having issues with periods at 13. I've had a number of small ops over the last 7 years and even though I'm young, I like to think I've experienced a lot due to PCOS.
Long story short, my periods are now quite regular (with the occasional slip up of a longer one or a cyst) and my partner and I are TTC.
Up until a month ago, I was taking metformin twice daily for insulin resistance along with a complete lifestyle/diet overhaul last year. I'm off metformin now as my insulin and glucose levels are normal!
Currently, I'm taking a multivitamin, watching my diet closely and taking Vitex daily.
What are your experiences with Vitex and PCOS and how long did it take to conceive?
I do know about clomid and shot etc as my obgyn tried three months worth a year or so ago to induce ovulation and since then I've been regular. I would really like to conceive naturally without too much intervention if possible.
Thankyou so much for any comments it's good to know I'm not alone
