Recently i have been asked a lot of questions in regards to what i use to help my PCOS symptoms so i thought i would write my survival kit which is all the things i use to manage my PCOS & what i use during my PCOS flares / Bad times.
Always remember that what works for me might not work for you! If you are unsure about trying something make sure you do you own research and speak to your doctor if in doubt.
My Blog post here explains about the symptoms i experience which will help in understanding why these are the products i use to help my PCOS.
WARNING: Being a post about PCOS there is talk about periods and bleeding. If you don't like reading about periods this is not a blog you should be reading.
There are many products i use to manage and to help me on my bad days. I am going to list all these below as well as links to where they can be purchased from. I am also sharing my opinions on the product and why i use them. If you have any further questions about a product feel free to message me. I am also including a few companies that have experiences with PCOS that i have found helpful.
Balance - This supplement contains everything you need to help balance your PCOS symptoms. It is created by Drew Baird who runs Healthy PCOS an awesome facebook page , website & PCOS course. I have found following drew's pages to be so helpful as they contain SO much info on PCOS. I also did his PCOS course which helped me to gain a further understanding of my PCOS.
I have been taking balance since December 2018 and have found it to be helpful with my PCOS symptoms.

I really love following them on Instagram and Facebook because the lovely lady who created and runs the company has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to hormones.
Raspberry leaf tea-
This is the one i get here.
Iorn supplement - As mentioned in my previous blog which is linked above. I often get extremely heavy periods and when this happens i end up very unwell. It took me a long time to realize that i was getting very low in iorn during this time and it was causing my body to have a meltdown. I would end up passing out or coming close too and being super super tired. So now i take a iorn supplement during my period to help me.
This is the one i get here.
