PCOS and Thyroid Infertility
I am 29 years, my husband is 35 years, we are trying for a child since 8 years. I was told that I have pcos and thyroid. Please guide me through this.
I am sorry to hear that you have been trying to conceive for so long.
The first step would be to talk to your doctor about balancing your thyroid gland. Your doctor knows your test results value and will evaluate the correct amount of thyroid hormone to supplement.
Also, it is important to follow a diet that supports the health of your thyroid gland. To learn more about how to properly eat to support the thyroid gland, I recommend reading the Natural Thyroid Diet eBook

As far as PCOS is concerned I would recommend supplementing with a natural multivitamin for women and omega 3 essential fatty acids.
If you can follow the PCOS diet
with special focus on avoiding foods that have estrogenic effect on the body like soy products and non-organically grown dairy, meat and vegetables.
One of the main causes of PCOS is hormonal imbalance often related to an excess of estrogen in the body. Higher levels of estrogen than progesterone in the body inhibit ovulation and the development of healthy follicles during the monthly cycle. If these follicles stay small and do not mature, an egg will not be released and conception cannot occur.
In most cases, toxins cause this imbalance and by following a fertility cleanse it is possible to eliminate a large
number of toxins, including excess estrogen, that may impair ovulation.
For women, who have PCOS, it is recommended to take at least 1-2 months to follow the fertility cleanse
to support liver detox. This helps get rid of excess estrogen and other toxic compounds that may be present and adversely affect reproductive health. It is important to avoid trying to conceive during this time as the toxins released by your body can affect a developing embryo if you get pregnant.
There are many studies done that report how specific herbal remedies can address the symptoms of PCOS and restore regular ovulatory cycles. One of these herbs is called VItex agnus castus known for its effects on lowering high prolactin levels and managing PCOS. Vitex contain hormone precursors that stimulate the pituitary gland to balance the female reproductive system.
Vitex is known to alleviate PMS, cyclic painful breasts, high prolactin levels, luteal phase defect, and to manage the symptoms of fibroids and PCOS.
Other important remedies are:
DIM, that helps break down and eliminate excess estrogen.
Natural progesterone cream, which is a bio-identical natural progesterone that counter balance the negative effects of excess estrogen supporting fertility. To treat pcos symptoms, it is recommended to apply progesterone during the second phase of the menstrual cycle from day 14 to day 28.
