Welcome to My PCOS Info

Welcome to My PCOS Info and thank you for stopping by.

The purpose of this website is to share information about Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Insulin Resistance (IR) with those who may need it.  There are some 200 pages here, grouped under the headings above and many more on the way.  I hope you find the information you are looking for and if you don’t – please drop me a line via the “Leave a Comment” box at the bottom of each page or send an email to

and I will be happy to put something up. Chances are it’s already on my to-do list and I can just bump it up a few notches.

Some good places to start are:

What is PCOS?

D Chiro Inositol

PCOS Cheat Sheet – A One Page Plan of Attack

Natural Treatments

News & Research

My Background

I found out that I had PCOS in 2003 after having suspected it for several years. I’d been to several doctors over that time but had not been able to persuade them to order the necessary tests as I didn’t fit the typical PCOS profile back then. Over the last few years I have read most of the primary research on PCOS, its causes, treatments and effects on our bodies. Over that time I have found out some very interesting and exciting information which has given me hope in controlling the problem.  I’ve even started importing a nutritional supplement called d-chiro inositol which has helped me enormously.  If you have PCOS or insulin resistance, then I urge you to learn more about DCI.  It is available for sale through this website to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, Mexico, the United Kingdom, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Trinidad, Brazil, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Israel, Croatia, Romania .  It may be possible to send it to other countries as well, so if your country is not mentioned just drop me a line and I will look into it for you.

I feel very blessed that I have a background in science and health which has given me the tools to learn about this confusing and distressing disorder. I can’t imagine how I would cope if I didn’t have this knowledge and I want to share what I have learned with other women who may have need of the information. That’s what this site is all about.

    Anne,
    I am looking to source your web page for a pathology report is it ok if I just have your first name for author or would you like me to add your last name?

      Hi Joy,

      I believe the accepted method of referencing webpages is just to provide the URL and the date the information was retrieved, however, you are welcome to use my first name or first and surname, whichever you prefer.

      I am glad the information is of use to you.

      Kind regards,

      Anne

    hi, iam from greece. i would like to order d chiro inositol. can you send it to greece?

  6. I’m not contacting you for information about PCOS but rather Psoriasis. Your website was referred from another website that discussed Psoriasis. Perhaps you may not have much information concerning the effects that D-Chiro-Inositol. But if you do would you be kind enough to Email me at pgo301@hotmail.com. I’m mostly concerned about the success rate and if there is validity in what people are saying about the impact that DCI has on Psoriasis?

    Thank You,

      There does appear to be a link between insulin resistance and psoriasis. I have quite a few customers who buy DCI for psoriasis rather than PCOS, some of whom have been buying it for over 3 years, so I can only assume that it works or they would likely have stopped buying it years ago. I’m not aware of any significant studies that have been done on the subject, but there do seem to be quite a few psoriasis sufferers following a low-carb/insulin sensitiser protocol with varying degrees of success.

  8. Rozanne says:

    Hello. I recently found out I have PCOS. Because I’m not trying to conceive the doctor recommended I take birth control pills to regulate my period. I’m trying to eat healthy and exercise. Can I take DCI while I’m on the pill, will dci work the same while taking the pill?

    Rozanne

    • My PCOS Info says:

      Hi Rozanne,

      It’s perfectly OK to take DCI and the pill at the same time. They have separate mechanisms of action so they don’t interfere with each other. Good on you for eating well and exercising. Research shows that they are the two most important things you can do to keep PCOS from developing nasty complications down the track. You can purchase DCI from the My PCOS Info Shop.

    I hav pcos…….pls pls pls pls pls……i need it…..i read u can tke myo inositol and d-chiro-inositol…..jst fr a bettr result, i dnt knw how tru dat is bt I cnt find any of dem anywhere in nigeria. So can u pls help? I’m actively tryin to concieve so its important. Thank u

    • My PCOS Info says:

      Hi Sara,

      You can buy both myo-inositol and d-chiro inositol from My PCOS Info

      I take DCI religiously and it has helped me tremendously. I take myoinositol sporadically, I’ll take it for a few months, then stop because I don’t notice any benefit from it. I’m taking it again as a study last year found it offered additional benefits to just taking DCI by itself. N-acetylcysteine may also be helpful for you if you are trying to conceive. Both DCI and NAC have been found to be at least as effective as metformin in the treatment of PCOS.

      If you have any more questions, just let me know.

      Best wishes,

      Anne

    Hi, I tried almost all pills….
    And they work, but they work only short period of time… then I get complications :(… then I have to stop taking the pills …

    But what I discovered is that exercises are doing magic for me. I have started to drive bycicle almost every day, with longer tours during the weekends…during the winter time I swim in the pool…and all my PCOS side effect are now much smaller.
    But I really work out.
    So i advise all with PCOS to try to exercises, but to do it frequently and hard. it helped me a lot!

    • My PCOS Info says:

      That is excellent advice and well supported by all the research into PCOS. Whether you are lean or overweight, exercise is crucial to managing the insulin resistance that is the cause of most PCOS symptoms.
