A combination of right nutrients and essential supplements are key to PCOS pregnancy success. Cinnamon helps lower the risk of miscarriage in women with PCOS by keeping their blood sugar levels in check.

Ashwagandha treats PCOS symptoms like irregular period, infertility, depression, weight gain, and insomnia by restoring hormonal balance. It lowers cortisol (stress hormone) and testosterone, which, along with low progesterone, trigger PCOS symptoms. It makes the body use up insulin and lowers fat. It also fights cell damage by boosting immunity. Taken with other herbs, it induces ovulation, regularizes periods, and relieves period pain. Combine it with a healthy diet and exercise.
There are 2 causes other than insulin resistance and excess androgen that is responsible for irregular ovulation and lower estradiol and progesterone levels in 40% women with PCOS. The first is elevated prolactin levels due to stress, pregnancy, or pituitary tumors. The second is an ineffective thyroid gland that disrupts the functioning of all body cells, including ovarian cells.
Women with PCOS can conceive naturally if the right root cause can be identified. High-androgen types need to control blood sugar and insulin with a low-glycemic-load diet and exercise. High-prolactin types need to reduce stress levels and consume foods rich in Vit B6. Low estrogen types should consume a diet rich in magnesium, zinc, and Vit C, B5, B6 to help restore normal adrenal function.
