Things have been moving in the right direction this year with my PCOS diagnosis, so I felt I should share my success! As you may be aware, last year I decided to tackle my PCOS and hypothyroidism without the use of medications. I wanted to balance my hormones naturally.
It’s taken a very long time to start to heal, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel!
If you wanted to catch up on my diagnosis and story thus far, please check out this post.
This year, my cycle has slowly returned, inconsistently but at least it’s happening! As you may be aware, women ovulate from alternate ovaries. I seem to have one cycle that is pretty close to 28 days now, and I can pinpoint the day of ovulation. The period associated with this cycle is completely pain free! No PMS!!!
However, the other cycle from the other ovary is not so pleasant. It fluctuates from 35 to 65 days long, and I can’t seem to pinpoint ovulation. The period associated with this ovary still quite painful, with cramps, headaches and a bad mood.
I have found that castor oil heat packs have eased the period pain. You can read more about them here.
So what do I believe have been the contributing factors to easy my PCOS symptoms, balancing my hormones and bringing my cycle back into line?
