Natural not Natural: Most natural methods are not very natural. Taking plant hormones to control pcos is not advised. Anything you take that your body doesn't produce is not natural. Pcos is a complicated disease that requires accurate diagnosis and proper treatment not only for reproductive health but overall health.

Yes: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (pco) causes the body to respond less well to insulin, so that higher Insulin levels are needed to keep glucose (sugar) under control. These higher Insulin levels can make people feel hungrier than usual so they eat more, and make it easier to gain weight.
