Yes, however...: Pregnitude has myo-inositol ; folic acid. It is safe to take during pregnancy. Myo-inositol has been shown to improve fertility in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome, but i don't know if it has any benefits in women without it. Folic acid prevents neural tube defects but at least 30% of women have difficulty converting Folic Acid to the active form, l-5-mthf, so it is ideal to take l-5-mthf. ...Read more

Yes.: Inositol is a naturally occurring carbohydrate with 9 stereoisomers.

Having pcod. Doc advice to take metformin 2gms, l-arginine, myo-inositol, folate, (folic acid) vit D3 (3 months). Still irregular periods. Pls advise.
Reasonable: That regimen for pcos is reasonable. It may take longer for metformin to regulate periods. The addition of spironolactone, a pottasium sparing diuretic has been shown to increase the success at regulating periods in pcos. It also serves the dual function of decreasing water retention and blocking testosterone effect at the hair follicle, decreasing the hirsutism that can occur with pcos. ...Read more

Diet, ? more thyroid: While exercise helps, the key to losing weight is diet ; a low-carb diet is esp. Beneficial for those with pcos. You say your thyroid is "under control" but that does not mean you are taking an optimal dose of thyroid- most who are hypothyroid benefit from taking t3 (liothyronine) or natural thyroid- see http://bit.Ly/1ccxy0r ; http://abt.Cm/18gpb3a ; http://bit.Ly/15k26u8 ; http://abt.Cm/1ntydpv. ...Read more

Lifestyle changes: There really isn't one exceptional herb or supplement for pcos. There are many options but they must be combined with the proper diet and exercise for maximal effect. Pcos and weight loss should be treated in a holistic, integrative way, looking at the whole picture and getting at the root of the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Am currently on traditional chinese medication herb. Can l take tcm shudihuang together with methfomin? Please help got pcos and trying to concieve!
Challenging: Shudihuang has never been combined with metformin in the laboratory setting. Should have your tcm doctor and endocrinologist discuss the best treatment plan for you. As for you having pcos, it is possible to get pregnant. But statistically there is a 45% chance of having a miscarriage. Maintaining healthy weight through diet and exercise can improve your fertility by regulating your blood sugar. ...Read more
