Hey thanks fr sharing your tips and help on PCOS as I’ve also been diagnosed and something I discovered was that cutting out sugars, processed foods, and minimizing carbs has helped me pretty significantly.

Resource I used was : PCOS And You

I’m happy to see someone posting about this!  I just posted that I may have PCOS – waiting on test results- but I am curious what to do if I do!  TTC and I have heard about the nightmares of doing so with PCOS.  I have heard about the Girlfriend lifestyle to help, but didnt think this would apply to me, since gluten in general hasn’t had a negative effect on me.  I never get super bloated after eating it.  However, I am willing to try anything!  Im definitely going to look into these sites – thanks!

Wouldnt the success of a gluten free diet on PCOS just be a byproduct of eating less carbs though? Is there any evidence that there is something about gluten that has an effect on PCOS? Recent studies show that gluten only really effects those with Celiac Disease. I have PCOS and tested negative for Celiacs so I’m just thinking, it’s likely just a reduction in refined carbs that is helping so many people. Did you ever try low carb but not specifically Girlfriend before? If so do you feel more success GF?

I have diagnosed celiac disease and have been gluten free for four years. I am very strict with it, no cheating, but so sensitive that I sometimes get cross contaminated and it throws everything off. 

Ive been off BC for over a year now and we are still trying, but with my terribly irregular cycles it hasn’t happened. I’ve suspected PCOS for a while but haven’t gotten the testing. 

This cycle I was supposed to start on the 1st and had one light spotting and then nothing…I thought maybe this was our chance but got a BFN. Coincidentally I also got glutened that week and it crossed my mind if there was a connection between the two. I just don’t know. It’s different for me I guess because I’m actually celiac so there’s an autoimmune reaction. I just wish more info and research was available.
