PCOS generally causes continued high levels of LH in comparison to FSH, leading to issues with ovulation, fertility, progesterone release, and overproduction of testosterone.

Your doctor or specialist may prescribe birth control in this event to ensure you are having a regular cycle as not having a regular cycle can cause many serious health issues. This is a chemical induced cycle and not your own cycle, though.

What can you do about it?

  1. Have your doctor test your LH/FSH levels
  2. Follow a low carbohydrate diet
  3. Perform regular exercise (resistance, HIIT & restorative)
  4. Minimize both emotional and physical stress
  5. Take inositol, omega-3, chromium & N-acetyl cysteine

Let me know if you have any questions at all, we’re here to help!
