I am 30 and was diagnosed with PCOS at 24. I've got 2 kids (9 and 6) and I had a miscarriage in 2011. I've got all of the 'typical' pcos symptoms. Would like to try for another baby but I've been bleeding since the beginning of October :(

Hi Heather

Please read the pages on PCOS and Miscarriages. Have you been tested for Insulin Resistance? That is a long time to be bleeding for. You might like to try this Heavy Bleeding Protocol which has been used by many with excellent results. It is most important to use exactly as stated though. Progesterone therapy is not an overnight fix, it does take time.

*Natpro Progesterone Cream - 400mg to 500mg/per day * N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) - 2000mg/per day * Taurine - 2000mg/per day * Vitamin D - 5000iu's/per day more if vitamin D level is low * Bioflavanoids - 1000mg/per day

Please read Estrogen Dominance as certain symptoms may be experienced when using progesterone for the first time. Vitamin D is vital, do you know what your level is as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone? It is also connected to every single cell and it’s formation in our bodies, including PCOS.

Hope this helps.

Hi Joy,
Thanks for the reply. I am currently taking metformin to help with the insulin resistance (I am not diabetic). I have been using this progessence serum that is made by a popular essential oils company. It's helped my moods and energy levels but not with the bleeding. I've been using it forms couple of weeks now. I haven't had any bloodwork done in a long time so in not sure of any of my levels. Any suggestions as to what I should ask the doctor to test? I've gone through your pcos info :) very informative, thank you! I'm waiting for the supplement to come back in stock so I can order some and try it. Thanks!

Hi Heather

I do hope that your doctor informed you that metformin/glucoophage causes a vitamin B12 deficiency, see here and here. Progessence will not help with bleeding, you need to follow the protocol mentioned. Please remember that any form of progesterone therapy is not an overnight fix, it takes time.

I suggest you have tests for estrogen, progesterone and vitamin D3. What supplement are you waiting for? If it is our PCO Formula, that has been discontinued and replaced with Energy Boost. However, you need the protocol to help you with your bleeding.

Thank you :) just wondering if the advice given here is from a doctor or naturopath? Not that it matters, just curious :)
