Vitamin D supplementation only has the possibility of improving PCOS symptoms if you are deficient in vitamin D, and even then, there is no guarantee.

You should discuss treatment for PCOS with your health practitioner. It’s a poor choice to try and treat a medical condition with “natural” remedies rather than medication and lifestyle changes that are clinically proven to improve or manage the condition.

That said, I would not call taking a vitamin d supplement a “natural” remedy – supplements are medication too. Your doctor may even recommend taking a vitamin D supplement if you are deficient, as there are a few observation studies that show that vitamin d supplementation in combination with metformin therapy can improve symptoms.

bumble89 :  i was taking it for my Vit D deficiency but wasnt helpful with my PCOS. As previous post said: talk to your provider. Everyone’s body is so unique and options will be individualized (supplements, birth control, diet, etc).
