Hi Missbx

This is my first cycle taking Inofolic (Inositol + folic acid)...and sadly for me, it seems like I still haven't O'd...but only time will tell. My longest cycle was 3 months long...but lately I was a normal 30 days, so I don't know why the Dr prescribed it. Now it looks like I'll have yet another long cycle :doh:

I was diagnosed with PCOS because of my hormonal imbalance.

Hope it works for your long cycle Miss

I tried it. While it helped some symptoms,it didnt regulate my cycles or my blood sugar so I stopped taking it and switched to metformin.

I must add, Inositol helps in regulating sugar level, and I don't have cravings for snacking as much as I used to...so I give credit to that
