  • I have PCOS. The progesterone will force an ovulatory cycle. It is a normal med for PCOS. I have a 3 month old son, and we got pregnant without medical help (suprisingly)

  • I have PCOS; was never medicated for it. Many of my symptoms went away once I started a lo-carb diet; was able to lose weight and my insulin levels normalized. There's a connection between carbs/insulin and PCOS, among other ailments. I was able to conceive with no problem.
