Don’t Let PCOS Define You! A PCOS Success Story

I get a ton of feedback from women all over the world who struggle with PCOS. Often it’s the emotional impact of PCOS that is the hardest to overcome. I thought I would do something different and create a video highlighting my PCOS Success. This could also be your story…

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the video and what keeps you motivated! Leave me a comment below…

  1. Hi Jenny,

    Sounds like you’re doing really well!

    You need to decide that this is a lifestyle change and that you are totally worth all of this effort!

    Also, finding someone who can help keep you motivated is really helpful!

  2. HI all. I am 38 and was diagnosed with PCOS 20 years ago. At that time there was no guidance much at all – ‘take the pill’ was about it. I did that for a bit but developed terrible mood swings and felt hideous so stopped. I started Metformin about 10 years ago and at first saw some really good results with it. But I did nothing about my lifestyle – I was an ICU nurse, worked shifts, lots of stress, no routine, had a rocky relationship…. In short I ended up in a state. So now I am hairy, fat, and just starting to learn how to take care of myself. I’ve really appreciated the advice on your website and have started making some positive changes. I’ve been walking about 20-25km/week, started inositol and omega 3, have cut out most dairy. My question is how to maintain motivation over the long haul? Any tips anyone?

  3. Hi, I have just seen your site and I am in love with it. I am 20 going to turn 21 in November and I have had PCOS since hitting puberty. Back then I never thought anything of it, but now I know that it has really effected me. My weight gain, my period irregularity, and now my ability to have children.
    I have just gotten married in January and my husband and I have decided to try for a baby. I work with children on a daily basis and both of my best friends have already had their first child. But because of my PCOS it is going to be very difficult to have my own.
    Today I have read your website and I am adamant that PCOS will not control my life, starting today I am fighting it head on.

  4. Thanks Tarryn for your post, I have being trying to get pregnant for the past two years, I knew something was wrong from when I was 17, Irregular period and little of other symptoms, I have lost hope of getting pregnant until I came across this site, thank you for the encouragement to start all over, there is no awareness in this part of the world, I get to know about POS by chance. I hope this diet and exercise stuff helps, I really need to have my own child. Every body around me are getting pregnant and having kids

  5. Thank you Tarryn for posting this. I have learned so much just by reading your posts. I have started the new eating and exercise plan, today is day three–and I have to say, I am already feeling the positive effects of it.

    We have been trying to start a family since 2011; I am very hopeful that this will work. It has been a very emotional diagnosis but I feel very very good about this new approach.

    Thanks again and I hope to have my own success story soon. You give me a lot of hope.

  6. Hi I am glad that I managed find a good page and hopefully share and get help from. I am 34 and far as I remember I have had PSOS since my puberty when I developed excessive hair growth, skin problems, heavy periods and later on due to stress and thyroid problems gained 3and halff stone on weight. No mention off fertility problems and cysts operations in past. I would love to have a baby with my husband but have some how sort out this mess. I found out now that conventional medical treatments are not the best thing now. Believe that when I have my PSOS under the control than it would be easier to try for family. It sometimes feels like a no winning battle and PSOS does whatever it want. I will appreciate to get some suggestions or advice and happy to share experiences with other people with PSOS.

    1. Hi James,

      PCOS is not easy to deal with but it can be managed. I would start by having a serious look at your diet, supplements and exercise regime. All of these have been shown to improve PCOS symptoms. Why not sign up for a free meal plan to get you started?

      Also, make sure that you are monitoring your symptoms so that you can see whether what you are doing is making a difference to your PCOS. You are absolutely right that getting your PCOS under control will also improve your fertility.

      Good luck!

  7. I just found your video and blogs today, and I was wondering did you ever use anything else as a fertility aid? Such as Chlomid or anything? I think I may have PCOS, but want to know my chances to conceive naturally just by following this website.

    1. Hi,

      I manage my PCOS using diet, supplements and exercise. I’ve never taken any fertility aids or prescribed medication to manage my PCOS.

      It is possible!

  8. I feel I am not in control of my eating and that I am lazy I’m not motivated at all but I really want to do it where do I find the motivation? I thought having a baby would motivate me knowing the cancers and sicknesses I can develop would motivate me but it hasn’t and its just pure laziness how do I break this viscous cycle?
