To say that I suffered unnecessarily for too many years is an understatement, but that’s the reality of many women grappling with the symptoms caused by PCOS. Even though I was a plant-based vegan for years and even successfully regained my period after months without a cycle, I still had the most obvious and frustrating symptoms of all. I suffered from constant hormonal acne and hirsutism (facial hair) as my ovaries were producing too many androgens (“male” hormones) and my body was stuck to balance.
Years later, I am still experimenting and of course have overcome my symptoms with simple lifestyle changes. Below are some of the products and methods that I have successfully used to treat my skin problems, PMS pain, and sluggishness that have been associated with PCOS. Remember, this worked for me, but it may not work for you. It is best to contact your doctor or other health professional who can offer treatment options based on your medical history.
