If you came here looking for pictures of ovarian cysts, you probably also want to find a way to treat them. Doctors usually recommend birth control pills to help shrink them, and surgery to remove larger ones. While this can work for some people, others with PCOS may not find relief.
I’ve been researching some different natural treatments for ovarian cysts. There are a lot of different herbs that you can try to use – each with its own degree of effectiveness. One that was recently sent to me was a supplement called Plexus.
Plexus is a health supplement company that makes supplements using the most natural ingredients. They have a range of products, from weight loss to pain management to probiotics. The weight loss supplement is called Plexus Slim, and it works by regulating blood sugar levels (it was originally designed for diabetics). Some people with PCOS have found that their symptoms improved while on it. For example, Brandy Smith wrote:
I have severe insulin resistant pcos and my “cysts” don’t just last while I’m supposed to be ovulating. They can be very painful cysts that last months. But since I have been taking Plexus slim the occurrence of them has been very minimal and I haven’t had any painful ones since August 2013. I have been taking plexus since the end of March and last month is the first time my insulin points came down enough for AF to visit My dry skin patches are gone, my skin has cleared up, my hair and nails actually grow! I believe it has greatly helped! My non scale victories have been what’s kept me going!
Another testimonial came from Jenny Studwell:
I have PCOS and have been on Slim (only) for 3 weeks! I have lost 8 lbs and have had my first menatral cycle in a long time. I had more cramping, and heavier flow but it was almost like it was “normal”. before I would only have it 2/3 days every 6-8 months. I will continue my plexus journey and can’t wait to see if it regulates anything else. good luck
Jennifer Tommey used the Slim and the X-factor (a multivitamin):
I have both PCOS & Endometriosis my constant pain has gone away as well as my friends since we started in Nov. Prior to that beginning at age 16 i have tried mult different birth controls, 2 Laparoscopic surgeries, 2 expensive Lupron shots, Metformin, & they wanted to do a full hysterectomy from the time I turned 23 which I wouldn’t let them. I’m just so glad I found Plexus. I started out w the Slim & old accelerator but now I’m just on Slim & XFactor. Just started Probio5 & Bio Cleanse.
Of course, there is going to be some variability in how it works for you. I’ve just started using it myself, and have noticed a lighter period with less cramping. However, each person’s body chemistry is different. The nice thing about Plexus is they do offer a 60 day money back guarantee.
You won’t find this supplement at the stores – it is only sold through Ambassadors. I do have an ambassador I use that you can check out if you want – just click here. You can contact her with questions by clicking on the top right corner of the screen. Of course, if you know someone who already sells it, you may want to go through them instead.
I’ll continue using this supplement. If you try it out and see results, please share them! Or if you have a different method of controlling ovarian cysts, please share it in the comments below.
