Omega blend

Omega Blend can help with weight loss, and also to balance your hormones. Omega Blend helps to create a good environment for conception all the way around. Supplementation with Omega-3 fatty acids can improve androgen levels and decrease insulin resistance, effective tools for women battling PCOS. Omegas can be found in cold-water fish and may be eating 2-3 times per week, but fish oil supplements can also boost your Omega intake.


Maca is great for balancing the amount of estrogen and progesterone in the body. This helps to give you a healthy menstrual cycle. Sometimes Maca is called a fertility “superfood,” which makes it a super popular choice for women who are having trouble conceiving. Maca doesn’t contain any hormones, but it just helps to balance out hormones that are already in the body.


Vitex is an effective herb, long popular to treat reproductive and hormonal imbalances in women. It is a good herb for PCOS because it both stimulates and stabilizes the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is what controls the release of LH hormone. It is important however, not to take Vitex if you are undergoing any IVF treatment or are on contraceptive pills.


Tribulus is awesome because it has been shown to normalize ovulation in infertile women when it is used prior to ovulation. It can help regulate the timing of the menstrual cycle, which can be a blessing to women suffering from PCOS. It can really help the entire female reproductive system as a whole.


Yes, cinnamon! It can be used to reduce insulin resistance, sometimes at a great rate. It can also slow the breakdown of carbs in the body. These are both great things for women with PCOS.

Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto stops the production of and helps break down DHT. It has also been shown to be effective in leveling off excess estrogen levels, a common problem in women with PCOS. In turn, this can help you to lose weight, increase libido, and regulate hormones.

White Peony

White Peony can help regulate estrogen levels, reduce excess testosterone, and positively influence excess progesterone.

These are some of the most popular herbs that people take for PCOS. It is important to always speak with your doctor before beginning to take any herbs to see how they will affect your body. If you are taking other medications, herbs and other supplements can have an adverse affect on these medications, so you want to always speak with a health care professional before beginning to take them.

I have regular cycles but I have all the symptoms of PCOS… I will eventually go to the doctor to get this treated but it is rather expensive. My question is, will Fertibella help me ovulation even if I have this condition?! Please help!!

    Fertibella has been clinically proven to help women with ovulation problems brought about by PCOS. It is specifically designed to stimulate ovulation through regulating hormones and normalizing cycles, therefore increasing fertility and chances pf pregnancy. However,  it is recommended that you discuss with your doctor about any medications your are taking.

    Pregnancy with COPD can pose problems to both mother and fetus, specifically on respiration and adequate blood oxygenation. I strongly recommend that you work closely with your doctor in your plans of conceiving, so that you will be properly guided and overseen in your journey towards pregnancy. It is important for your doctor to evaluate your present condition and over-all health in order to better determine what treatment options are available for your personal care and health.

    Hello, I have tried Metformin, and my doc is saying because of my hubby’s low sperm count my only other option is in-vitro which costs $13k. I do not have that kind of money. I am now considering acupuncture. Are there any other affordable natural treatment options for PCOS? Thanks!

    One natural treatment you can do is to to lower your carb intake to 30 – 50 grams per day and by exercising regularly. Doing those has proven to reduce PCOS symptoms and regulate your menstrual cycle. As for your hubby’s low sperm count, he can take adequate vitamins, have a balanced diet and exercise regularly to help improve his health and fertility. Good luck!

    Natural remedies address PCOD at its
    root, in order to eliminate your PCOS-associated symptoms like weight gain,
    acne, facial hair, irregular menstrual cycles and infertility. In
    addition to eating the PCOS diet, supplements have shown to be effective in
    helping those with PCOS. Natural therapies such as homeopathic remedies
    including OM 24 and female liquesence and herbs like M 2 tone and Hyponidd are
    important, this is because these remedies help
    by balancing your body’s secretion of female hormones estrogen and progesterone
    and gently dissolving ovarian cysts.

    I have PCOS and have an almost non existent cycle (1-2 per year). I am taking agnus castus, saw palmetto, chromium, EPO, B complex, a prenatal, magnesium and milk thistle daily and soy CD 3-7. Someone has suggested licorice root also on CD 3-10. Are there any negative interactions in what I’m taking? I have started to use NPC to bring about a cycle.
