PCOS the syndrome is a boon to many supplement manufacturers. If you log into amazon, search for PCOS in reviews section, you see atleast 20+ natural supplements claiming as a solution to PCOS. Much of their benefits are typically characterized by menstrual cycle restoration, menstrual cycle regulation, aid with weight loss, helping with food cravings, stress relief, hormonal blanace, peace of mind etc
Now , coming to our topic of the day, is Vitex a real good supplement for PCOS. To answer this question I want to share my personal experience with vitex. Before few years while I had trouble conceiving I had to browse a lot. Many women mentioned about PCOS. I naturally wanted to give this a shot and bought supplements in amazon
I started with three pills a day. The very first reaction I had was Wow. I have never ever felt this peace of mind, balance of mind before. I can feel that something is happening inside me. I continues taking the pills. Now comes the surprise. After 20 days I did a pregnancy test and it is positive.
I have had my mensuration before 9 months, started taking vitex, did not get my menstruation, but CONCEIVED. So, I think vitex helped me with ovulation. Here I should mention one more thing. It is during this time I started taking metformin after a very big gap of 9 months. May be vitex, metformin combination helped me conceive.
I had some personal life vents, had to try to become pregnant once again. This time I took vitex for 3 months alongside metformin. I could not see any success. So, I stopped vitex, but still took metformin for few more months. I had success after few months.
Now, few months into postpartum, I felt depressed, had lot of craving for sugar, started adding sugar to my coffee. I stopped adding sugar to coffee ever since my teens. I’ve never ever had this level of craving but somehow I don’t know I needed something. Before few days, I started vitex again. Now, my craving is well under control.
As a conclusion vitex has given me peace of mind, hormonal regulation as they claim it to be. This alone can’t help you conceive based on my experience. So, go for proper treatment and if you want to give this a shot, I’m for it. I took the pills today morning as well
CONCLUSION: VITEX WILL HELP YOU CONTROL PCOS SYMPTOMS BUT NOT ONE STOP SOLUTION FOR PCOS BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
