This week, we’re going to dig into another episode for the Now What Series. And specifically, we’re going to be talking about polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS.

Many of you know that I’ve struggled with PCOS even now, and you probably remember that I was diagnosed with PCOS in my early twenties. 

I chose not to take birth control pills because I was lucky enough to be in acupuncture school at the time and I was able to work with my teachers and fellow students to use myself as a guinea pig, and after few months, my cycles were regular. Now, to be clear, my cycles were never ever 28 days. They were always super long, between 35-38 days, but I would always get a cycle instead of going months without one. And I was able to conceive once my husband and I decided it was time for a baby.

 But after I had my daughter, I noticed that my symptoms of PCOS were creeping back up.  That’s when I realized that PCOS is a condition that I’m going to have to learn how to manage for life. I already knew how to treat PCOS with acupuncture, but I noticed that for certain patients, it wasn’t enough.

So I threw myself into researching PCOS, both for myself and for my patients, and I know so much more now then I did before and today, I’m going to share with you three tips that can quickly make a difference for you.

I appreciate you taking the time to listen in today! Please don't forget to help other find this podcast by giving me a review :)

So everyone knows that you must have a period in order to get pregnant.  But what about those who suffer from Hypothalamic Amenorrhea or HA?

Hypothalamic amenorrhea is a condition where a period is absent for longer than 6 months and usually caused by stress, under-eating, over-exercising, etc.  Logan suffered from HA after the birth of her second child, but she had this incredible drive and determination to get her health back on track.

You'll find in this interview:

  • How Logan discovered that she may have HA
  • The one thing that ultimately made a difference for her and helped her conceive
  • Her mindset through the TTC journey and how she found support, came to terms with her condition, and took action. 
  • A glimpse into her healthy lifestyle that she credits with her success, and her obsession with essential oils and Beautycounter, which is a non-toxic skincare brand. 

Logan was nice enough to share a freebie with us!  She gave us her recipe for making homemade hand sanitizer without all the toxic chemicals, and also a all-purpose cleaner. 

Here is how to get the freebie and some of the link mentioned in the show:

In this episode, we explore places to look for answers and your options if you're not ready to jump into medical interventions. 

As frustrating as this diagnosis is, it doesn't define you.  You're not infertile.
