At Simple Organic: A Natural Approach to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Today I’m over at Simple Organic, sharing about my journey with PCOS and natural ways to treat it through lifestyle changes.
Call me naive. I didn’t know that there was something terribly wrong about going 6 months without a cycle.
I was 20 years old and in my last year of university. My health was far from superb, but I certainly didn’t think that there was anything seriously wrong with me.
A friend suggested that I just get myself checked out, and I was surprised when my doctor referred me to an OB-GYN for further testing. A few blood tests and an examination later, I had an answer for what was going on in my body.
I had PCOS, or Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome.

I just wanted to thank you, from your blog posts and your sharing about PCOS, I managed to control mine. I lost weight, and took Vitex and went off all the metformin and BC pills. Now I am 6 months pregnant and praising the Lord for this miracle, and for women like you who blog about things that others also struggle with! Thank you Stephanie!
@Lizanne, What an awesome testimonial, Lizanne! Thanks so much for sharing that. Yay! 🙂
Hi there! I loved this article and found it very informative. Thank you for taking the time to write it. I am a midwife and have known women over the years with PCOS. There’s so much to learn about this syndrome and how different women respond to various modalities of treatment. I am wondering if you’d be interested in allowing our magazine, The Birth Project to reprint this post? I think it would benefit many of our readers (both pregnant women and birth workers alike). Thanks for your good work!
@Amanda, I’d love to talk with you more about it, Amanda! Why don’t you email me through my contact form:
