It's no secret, but I don't really talk about it. I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, (PCOS). Infertility among early 30 somethings is still quite taboo. I can name at least 4-5 women on my Facebook friends list who suffer from PCOS, and NONE of them will strike a connection on the subject. We may casually talk about it, but then it fizzles. I don't broadcast my personal bizz, but the PCOS life can be a lonely one... So, I just completed a 134 day cycle.
134 day cycle.
Yes, you read that right.
Almost 4 cycles with no period.
I went to the local Natural Foods store in hopes of taking a "Fertility Shot" they had advertised outside. Herb Pharm is a brand that is difficult to get in a store, and I needed it pronto and couldn't wait for shipping. I eyed it on the counter as the man made my "Fertility Shot", which I have no idea what the hell was in it! I purchased it for $15, and took it immediately! I took a dropper full 3 times a day for 12 days straight and wah-lah!
Ladies we have a period!
Cramps? Woo hoo!
Parsley tea usually helps me, but even that wasn't working. I am happy to say and report that this tincture worked. Not just the tincture itself, but I really believe it is the brand. I love Herb Pharm, it is really good quality stuff. If you're suffering from Amenorrhea before you run to Black Cohosh do your due diligence with research, or ask your doctor.
It made me loopy.
Happy one minute
Sad the next minute.
Angry to the max the next minute.
Back to happy.
This will definitely be my go-to, and I am hoping it will work just as effectively. It's the Holiday season so I am spoiling myself and getting herbs and tinctures to help manage my PCOS. I will be reviewing once they come in the mail =)
