Inositol Success? PCOS? — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Inositol Success? PCOS?

Hello! So i am not sure where to post this, but has anyone taken inositol and have success getting pregnant? We are maxed out on trying with doctors, we have exhausted every opportunity... So now i am trying to see if there is a way to get pregnant naturally? This has been a 10year journey for us... we managed to have two perfect boys, from 7 rounds of ivf and 13 embryos... things have changed a bit since we first began trying, and my doctor has not heard of Inositol, but Dr. Google says it can work, i am just looking for real world success? Thanks ladies!

Started TTC in 2006, LOTS of trying, and trying, and 7 rounds of IVF with 13 embryos, 2 perfect little boys and 5 loses....
All finished with babies, started to make diet changes, Keto, to be MORE for my kids, lost 30 pounds, still going, and 3 months in, I had a natural cycle, and then ovulated... Hubs and I are going to see what happens now... Maybe a natural pregnancy? After everything we have been through? Or just a return to normal hormones? We shall see what the future holds!

Baby Dust To All!!!

    Many of the women on this board have never been pregnant, myself included, so I have no real life experience to be able to tell you if this works. It's also important to note that just because something works for one person, it doesn't mean it will work for you. 

    Unfortunately, TTGP has a very active IF community. I'd recommend reading the Newbie Guide pinned to the top of the board and intro-ing in the IF thread. One-off posts like this clutter the board, so we prefer questions to be asked in the weekly/daily threads. GL.

    I am also PCOS and have been on all the supplements.  While perhaps the supplements have helped my egg quality, It sure hasn't gotten me knocked up, sorry.  If you're trying for getting KU naturally I would recommend the book It Starts with the Egg.  

    Best of luck to you - feel free to into and join in the IF thread here.

  • Welcome OP - that's the main trouble is most of us can't answer your question here bc the majority are TTC No1.  Success after IF maybe a more fit crowd?

    Also, we are a pretty bonded community - so we'll be happy to have you lurk, intro and start participating regularly, support the crud outta your journey(!), answer alll sorts of questions on the daily threads, ...but like the one-off google type thing - hi and bye - that's what we try to discourage - not bc we're unhelpful - but bc we prefer to foster that community bond (and discourage transients lol)

    For the sake of argument, I don't have pcos but I saw someone shared an article not too long ago I found interesting about inositol helping improve egg quality upon retrieval for IVF patients.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4464995/

    Kicking myself a little bc I am starting it up again now only 2 months out from retrieval, not 3, but it is what it is.  GL!!!
