Spearmint tea - works wonders

Postby komkom » Fri Feb 06, 2015 7:48 pm

Hi all!
I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 23 - I'm now 28. It took me a good few years to understand what that meant - and only when I was TTC i realised how much of an impact it would have on me.

I've been struggling with hirsutism since i was about 21. I've tried being on "the Pill" (Estelle) for about a year or two...which didn't help much, it made me very moody. I also tried Metformin for about two years - I found that it didn't help at all with my hair growth, regulating my cycles or weight management. I have now given that up.

For the past year I have been drinking spearmint tea - I read some stuff online about spearmint and cinnamon being good for decreasing testosterone. I have had the best results with drinking spearmint tea once or twice a day, i also now add ground cinnamon. I highly recommend trying this!

Would love to hear if anyone has experienced good/bad results using this?
Best of luck all x

I wasn't aware of this, but last week I was drinking mint tea daily and I think I oed sooner than my previous cycles. If I get a bfp this cycle I'll let you know. Good luck with your ttc journey!!
