Just wanted to let everyone out there with PCOS know there is hope- - I'm not on any meds (Metformin gave me a really bad reaction, though I know it works miracles for others.) I was getting periods totally eratically - 65 days, 40 days, then 45 days - now, for the past 3 months I've been getting it every 34 days like clockwork! It's all because of Paleo ;) Has anyone else had similar success?

Yes, I have for a while now. I was able to stop taking birth control pills about nine months ago and they came about every thirty days, and were a lot lighter and easier to deal with than the hormone-induce periods I'd had. I was also able to stop taking Metformin after bloodwork over the summer showed I was no longer pre-diabetic.
Thank you for posting this. I think that a lot of people are under the impression that synthetic hormones are the only way to control PCOS and that's there's little hope to control it naturally.
