I’m going out of my comfort zone with this one.
I’m going to the chiropractor for PCOS treatment. Tomorrow.
Since February, I’ve only taken natural supplements for my PCOS. I started having natural cycles and was ovulating. I was thrilled! My body was responding well and I felt like natural conception was finally possible.
Then July happened.
We’re halfway through August…
Let’s just say, I’m on my 7th week in this cycle, definitely not pregnant, and experiencing estrogen surge after estrogen surge… my body is trying. I don’t know if I need to increase the supplement doses or what. My guess is yes because I am taking the lower doses, but I decided to finally seek some guidance from a professional who knows supplements well and understands how they impact the female body. What I currently take is supposed to balance my estrogen, and for a while it did… it did great. NOW it’s losing its mind! Everything was perfect the past few months… like, really great. 31-day cycles, ovulation around CD 14-15… I don’t know what has changed, but I’m about to find out how to stop it.
On Monday this week, I had the most awful cyst rupture to date. Definitely the worst pain I’ve ever had with a cyst, and thank goodness it did not last very long. It only made me realize how important it is that I try an alternative way to treat my PCOS. I guess it’s desperation. Kind of a last resort…
My appointment is tomorrow. I’m very thankful that I was able to get a Saturday appointment. I have a very general idea of what to expect – some kind of weird allergy test, acupuncture, actual treatment (not just a consultation)… have any of you been to a chiropractor for PCOS treatment? Did you like acupuncture or hate it?
I figure if I can’t handle acupuncture, I definitely can’t handle Follistim…
