81: Can your PCOS root cause be different to other women in your family?

After getting diagnosed with PCOS, you don’t really get much help with what to do next. What’s my PCOS root cause? What dietary changes do I need to make? Can I continue to exercise the same way? What about supplements? What about pregnancy? How do I fix these symptoms?

It’s no wonder so many of us wind up down a rabbit warren of trying different diets, exercising like there’s no tomorrow, buying hundreds of dollars worth of supplements and just end up generally exhausted because it seems like we’re just going around in circles and not really getting anywhere with our PCOS.

I know how damn frustrating it can be because I’ve been in that very same spot. I found myself on PCOS forums, facebook groups and hunting through Dr. Google for something that actually worked. However, I don’t think you need me to tell you – that sh*t is exhausting beyond belief!

So in this episode, my lovely colleague Sophia and I are going to chat through more of your questions! In this episode we’re covering off:

  • General vitamins and minerals to take for PCOS
  • Is it normal for your PCOS to not come back after pregnancy?
  • Can you reverse hair loss?
  • Is it possible to have a different type of PCOS from my Mum and sister?
  • How can you tell if your hair is regrowing?
  • Is hiking a good form of exercise for PCOS?

So, if you’ve been dealing with hair loss, are unsure of your root cause, don’t know where to start with supplements for PCOS or just want to make sure you’re on the right track when it comes to improving your PCOS, tune in and listen!
