No Results with Acupuncture
I have been on the BCP since I was 15 years old. My periods weren't regular before that, but I was only 13-14 years old, so I was never worried. I stopped taking the BCP in May of 2006 before I got married in September.
By the Spring of 2007 I was diagnosed with PCOS by blood work. I have acne, hair on my face, chest, stomach, fingers and toes. My average weight on the BCP was 145-160 pounds. I currently weigh 185-190 pounds and have been this weight since I stopped taking the pill. I am 5'8.
I don't have an insulin problem the doctor says but I have all the other PCOS symptoms. As of now, I haven't had a period in 8 months. I started acupuncture and have gone to 9 sessions and taken 4 bottles of Chinese herbs. I also started a fertility cleanse and I am on day 21 of that.
I cut out all sugar, processed foods, alcohol, quit smoking and here I am 21 days later no weight loss, no period and I am not pregnant. What else can I do? The doctor says prometrium and clomid is my next step but I don't want to do that if I don't have to. I also don't want to spend my future child's college tuition on treatments. Any advice??
