D-Chiro Inositol - Newbie PCOSer here

Postby The_Mrs » Fri Apr 25, 2014 11:12 am

Well I was "diagnosed" yesterday with borderline PCOS. LH/FSH ratio is 1.85:1 and ovaries have lots of small follicles, but not quite 12 or more. The discovery came after 11 weeks has passed without AF after a m/c and D&C at 9 weeks (all natural coming off B/C).

So since I got pregnant easily and can't be officially diagnosed with PCOS due to ratio under 2:1, I've been researching some natural remedies and came up with inositol or D-chiro inositol. Just ordered a bottle but a little scared to use it as I haven't been diagnosed as insulin deficient.

I'm average weight, exercise a few times a week, eat relatively healthy and have no physical symptoms of PCOS other than mentioned above. Anyone take this without official insulin resistance diagnosis? Any success stories, or for that matter scary stories I should know about?

From what I've read it cannot be harmful but just wondering if it turns out I am not insulin resistant, could this be?

Sorry for the long post!
