How to Overcome PCOS before Pregnancy?
I often get asked about how to overcome PCOS before pregnancy. First, let me say that PCOS need not prevent pregnancy, it simply needs to be effectively managed. The next point is that polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) affects women in very different ways.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine abnormalities in reproductively active women—affecting 5% to 10% of females. This makes PCOS a leading cause of infertility in woman of child bearing age.
There has been some really interesting research coming out of the US recently, talking about the fact that exercise, daily exercise dramatically improved the ability of women to ovulate even when insulin resistance and glucose tolerance problems weren’t an issue.
My recommendation is to implement three key methods for overcoming PCOS:-
- Regular Exercise
- Fertility Diet
- Nutritional Support / Supplements
These three simple activities are all going to be great ways of managing polycystic ovarian syndrome. I know because I also have PCOS. When I was trying to have my son after I was able to normalize my cycle and get my cycles to be regular and everything in order, we actually conceived first try despite my husband’s having morphology and motility issues that we also were able to address. I’ve also written several posts on the topic so follow these links for more detailed information
