“PCOS Confessions: Pregnitude & Myo-Inositol for PCOS”


Pregnitude is not a pre-natal vitamin, but a unique reproductive support dietary supplement that easily supports a woman’s body and promotes a healthy reproductive cycle based on research.

But before I talk about Pregnitude itself, I wanted to talk about Myo-Inositol. Have you ever heard of it? Chances are, probably not. I hadn’t either until recently.

There is a lot of good research out there on how myo-inositol helps with fertility and pregnancy. More specifically, Inositol has been shown to:

+ Restore normal ovulatory activity and fertility in women with PCOS
+ Improve egg quality and pregnancy rate in women with failed IVF
+ Improve pregnancy rate and lower cancellation rate in women with PCOS

PCOS Diva wrote a great article about Myo-Inositol and in it she says the following points that stood out to me:

“Myo-inositol is not a pharmaceutical drug. It is a naturally occurring substance produced in the human body that belongs to the vitamin B complex group.

PCOS has been linked to a deficiency in myo-inositol. Myo-inositol can be synthesized by the body from food, but when we are already deficient, the lack of myo-inositol can impact the ability of the body to be sensitive to insulin. Women with PCOS are also known to have a defect in their insulin-signaling pathways which are heavily dependent upon inositol-containing substances (phosphoglycan mediators). Supplying extra myo-inositol appears to temporarily correct the malfunctioning insulin pathways and reduce the signs and symptoms of insulin resistance.”

“In another study conducted in Italy in 2007, researchers followed 25 women with oligo-amenorrhea (irregular menses) or amenorrhea (no menses) due to PCOS. Myo-inositol and folic acid were given daily as INOFOLIC. Those treated had at least one menstrual cycle, and of these, seventy two percent continued ovulating normally. Forty percent of the women became pregnant and the study concluded that, “Myo-inositol is a simple and safe treatment that is capable of restoring spontaneous ovarian activity and consequently fertility in most patients with PCOS. This therapy did not cause multiple pregnancy.” Interesting!”

Apparently, many women on Pregnitude see a reduction in acne and hirtuism, as well as, experience more stable moods and less anxiety.

I did a lot of research and decided to give Pregnitude a try. I haven’t taken it long enough to give my thoughts or do a review as it’s only been 3 weeks but I did want to mention it and see what others thought. I will be coming back here with an update once I have more details gathered but so far, I feel great and have more energy when taking it. I hope I can continue on a good path with it. Pregnitude contains 2000mg of myo-inositol, as well as 200mcg of folic acid. If anything, my hair and nails will be beautiful. *smile*

Pregnitude is pretty simple. Carefully separate the two packets of Pregnitude from each other along the perforated line.

Tear one packet open and pour 1 packet of Pregnitude into an 8 oz. glass of water and stir or swirl to dissolve the powder.

Continue to swirl or stir liquid until contents have been dissolved.

Drink the entire glass, and take the other packet in the evening.

    So how has it been? I”m not sure when this blog was written as I couldn’t find a date but I’m thinking of starting pregnitude and wanted to get some feedback from you on it. Did it help you to conceive and if so, how long did it take? does it have any side effects? etc…

      It took 2 months. I wrote this post September 9th 2014 and got pregnant the end of October 2014. My daughter was born in June of 2015 and is now 5 months old. GOOD LUCK.

    I just started taking this within the past month or so, initially I took it faithfully every day and night along with prenatal vitamins but life has led to inconsistency. I also purchased the fertile focus microscope and based on my ferning I believe that the pregnitude may have helped me concieve, it’s just a little early for me to test ?.

    I started taking mine almost 3 weeks ago and it is simple. I haven’t had any side effects and I’ve just started experiencing mild cramping. I usually only have 1cycle a year due to my pcos and I’m passing this works. My boyfriend and I have been TTC for a year and I want to exhaust all my options before I try any medical treatments. Good luck

    I am excited to try myo-inositol! We’ve been TTC for 6 years & I have been doing tons of research about myo-inositol. I was diagnosed with PCOS almost 5 years ago. I didn’t know till I read your blog, that it isn’t a pharmaceutical Suppliment…it is definitely something I wish I had known about years ago! If our bodies are missing it, I pray this is the key to some of my issues.
