Hi, I’m Tarryn Poulton, founder of PCOS Diet Support and PCOS Foodies. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2010 after struggling to get pregnant. I could have been diagnosed in 1998 when I first saw a Gynaecologist about my irregular cycle. All he told me was that I didn’t ovulate every month. When I did finally get diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, I was overwhelmed and relieved all at the same time. And I was frustrated by the lack of support I was offered by my doctor – fertility treatment or the pill. So I went on a research frenzy, looking at every medical publication I could get my hands on to better understand what was happening in my body. My Bachelor of Sciences Degree in Occupational Therapy was being put to use as I decoded and deciphered all of the medical jargon to get to the core of the problem. The leading medical studies in PCOS all suggest that dietary and lifestyle changes should always be the first line treatment in managing PCOS. So, I began to follow a PCOS diet, a diet that would balance my raging PCOS hormones and boost my fertility. 4 months later I was able to conceive naturally and later gave birth to my daughter. I was also able to conceive my son naturally. It is now my mission to educate, support and teach thousands of other women that PCOS is manageable in so many ways. I share only those things that have been proven through scientific and medical research. And I am so grateful that in sharing the latest research and medical studies, not only has my life changed, but so have the lives of thousands of other women with PCOS. Since starting PCOS Diet Support in 2011, I have helped over 4000 women through my courses and also provide the most advanced meal planning platform for women with PCOS – PCOS Foodies. I feel passionately about collaborating with leading PCOS products and experts. I have partnered with Fertility Focus, Theralogix and worked on joint projects with Dr Felice Gersh. In my quest to find the best tools and resources for women with PCOS, I have also completed my Precision Nutrition Level 1 Nutrition Coaching certification.​

  2. My story is similar to yours. I was diagnosed in January 2010 three months after my periods completely stopped. My gynecologist was unconcerned with what caused the PCOS and put me on clomid to give us a chance to conceive but I wanted to know the root of the problem. My primary doctor ordered a blood test and found out my testosterone was too high. One month of metformin lowered it enough to conceive and I gave birth to our son in February 2011. We are not concerned at all with fertility since we’re not having another one but I definitely feel the effects of the hormonal imbalance and I am now on a mission to correct it by supplements. Thanks for all the information you provide on the website, I appreciate it. Thanks!

    1. Thanks so much for sharing your story Des! PCOS definitely impacts on so many areas of our lives! it’s great that you’re digging deeper and looking for a natural way to manage your symptoms!

  3. Hi Tarryn
    I have just looked through the site and it has already motivated me to make a change to my lifestyle me and my partner have been talking about having children but I’ve always been worried that it might not happen. Hopefully with the information you have on this site we can start heading towards the right direction. I Have plenty of books about Pcos and diets but i am always put off by their lack of simplicity. I can see me being a regular visit to your site. Thank you very much for your inspiration.

    1. Hi Marie,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know how much you’re enjoying the site and I’m so glad you’re feeling inspired!Looking at diet before you start trying for a baby will stand you in really good stead.

      I look forward to your regular visits!

  4. Love your site thanks for motivation I will love to ask u that by the time u were. Trying did u take any pill after being diagnose with pcos

    1. Thanks so much Anna! Glad you’re enjoying the site. I didn’t take any pills or medication. I found out I had PCOS after going off birth control and trying to conceive. I was also really depressed and had all of the symptoms. I was seen by a gyno to find out if I was ovulating or if I needed Clomid to help me ovulate so we could have a baby. I knew I was pregnant when I went back for the results of my tests so I never needed clomid. I stick to a dairy-free and largely wheat free diet and low GI carbs and loads of fresh fruit and veggies. My weight is more or less under control and my cycle is more or less regular.

      Hope that helps!
