    Default Naturopath for PCOS and natural fertility

    Hi girls,


    I've had enough of my body not functioning properly (PCOS, not falling pregnant and hormones ALL over the shop). So I after chatting with one of you on here i finally booked in to see a Naturopath!! I'm hoping she will give me lots of advice on a diet that helps reduce PCOS symptoms as well as other natural fertility advice.


    Have any of you been to see a naturopath and what were your experiences?


    Anna

    I haven't as I never believed that the natural stuff could do anything but my husband went and bought some magnesium today and the naturopath who is also a nursr said it can help with soo many things like fertility snd insulin resistance.

    Would be interesting to know how you go!

    I've been. They'r really good. Don't give up on them tho if the initial recommendations dont seem to be working. Please go back and this will help them to tailor a new treatment plan. Tbh they've helped me and my kids more than the doctors have!!

    I found a website www.pcossupport.com which talks about diet changes that we can make to help with our PCOS - I found it really interesting. My doctor has literally just told me to take the pill and not spoken about what effects my diet could have on my PCOS. I want to try to get pregnant without taking clomid or metformin so I'm going to change my diet now as I won't be trying to conceive for a few months yet... Just lots of practice for now! :P

    Default Naturopaths work!

    I had PCOS diagnosed after I had been trying to fall pregnant for a year. I didn't know I had it. I took some herbs and made some changes to my diet and never felt better, but apparently the treatment is different for everyone. I fell pregnant 6mnths later! I went to a Naturopath in the city - cbd natural health and really recommend it. Good luck!

    Hi.. I have taken Chinese herbs over two periods of time in 14mths of TTC and being off the pill.. I can vouch that they are fantastic.. I have however stopped taking them and stopped the acupuncture as I felt it was a) too expensive b) not good to be on herbs long term.. Short term they are great for shortening periods and sorting out reduced estrogen depression..
    The only issue is I didn't want to be dependant on them forever so I'm trying to go cold turkey!
