Different ways to treat PCOS, and getting pregnant and possibility’s of it resulting from Candida Yeast?

Question: Different ways to treat PCOS, and getting pregnant and possibility’s of it resulting from Candida Yeast?
OK, I have had PCOS for at least 3 – 5 years. I am trying everything I can to get better/pregnant. I have changed my lifestyle around the ways I eat, sleep, exercise, and have sex. I have consulted with nearly 10 doctors, OB-GYN’s, and everything else imaginable. I have tried medications (Clomid, Metformin, etc.), Vitamins, and nothing seems to work.

I have done hours and hours of research, and I have pretty much gone to the limits to try and get rid of my PCOS. If there are any great tips out there that have personally worked for you, I am willing to try to get rid of this. My periods are semi-irregular. I get them about each 35-45 days, and fortunately have been since November of last year, which is new for me. I did miss march, but it was weird how it worked out.

After hours of research, I also found this:
“Candida is a fungus that is found in the body in benign amounts, but when given the correct circumstances, grows uncontrolled throughout the body. It most commonly resides in the small intestine, but it often runs from the sinuses down to the groin.

Candida is known for causing, or being a part of, reproductive organ problems, such as yeast infections, endometriosis, PCOS, impotence, and fertility problems. Other symptoms might be difficult to pinpoint. The most obvious is yeast infections, especially chronic yeast infections. It can also cause depression, gastrointestinal problems, allergies, and a variety of other symptoms. Candida makes a mortal crave sweets, grains, and cheese and makes you consume when you’re not hungry and/or more than you need. It can lead someone to become overweight.

A candida yeast overgrowth is caused by intake too many foods that feed the fungus, such as the foods mentioned above. However, most people get it from taking oral antibiotics, which end up killing all the bacteria in the body, including the good bacteria which keeps the normal levels of candida benign, allowing the fungus to grow to big amounts.”

Now if this is true, this is very doable for me! I am CONSTANTLY craving sweets/chocolates, and when I first found about that I had PCOS, I had chronic yeast infections, and in about 2 years I had about 10-15 of them. And since then, I get about 1 or 2 a year.

Is this a possibility for me? How do I get checked? What are some treatment methods (Vitamins, Home remedy’s, prescriptions, etc.)? And will my PCOS go away by treating the Candida, and if so, will I need a scan again/how will I know? Can anyone else testify to this Candida Yeast issue, and what worked for you?

Thanks for your time.

    PCOS is a syndrome. You don’t ever really “get rid” of it. You can control it though with some medications and changing the way you eat. It’s just like dieting, it has to be a lifestyle change. If you’ve tried meds like clomid and metformin to get pregnant and they haven’t worked, you may need to make the jump to IUI or IVF. I have PCOS too and I know it’s frustrating, but it’s not going away, it’s a hormonal problem. You need to learn to manage it. Change the way you eat, drink a lot of water, exercise, all the basics. Hope this helps.

    Go on an anti-candida diet and try it out!

    I have PCOS and suffered from thrush but this stopped when I stopped taking the birth control pill!

    Since coming off the pill I have had NO thrush and NO migraines (I suffered awful migraines for years whilst on the pill!)!!!

    PCOS is caused by insulin resistance. My question is how long did you take metformin for and what dosage were you taking?

    Metformin really is a miracle drug for PCOS women! It removes the insulin problem and in most cases (80-90% of women) it gives you a normal periods and often it stimulates ovulation.

    I’m on 1000mg a day and I am now getting regular periods…and I think I may be ovulating : )

    Your sweet cravings are most likely caused by your insulin resistance. Your thrush is probably caused by your insulin resistance.


    Change your diet (anti candida)

    Take Metformin…give it a really good go.

    Best of luck : )

    Hey! I have pcos and also had a huge problem with yeast infections. They’re both horrible.
    I had thrush the same frequency as you, often every month. The only thing that has made it go away is putting an anti-thrush capsule inside my vagina-I got it from the pharmacy.
    It’s been about 10 weeks now-thank goodnes!!
    As for the pcos, my most successful diet is based on fruit and veg-avocadoes, aubergine, oranges, lemons, apples etc, with eggs and the occasional chicken, yoghurt and red meat as protein. Now I know this goes against the advice for pcos which is generally that you’re best off with a low carb diet, but I guess fruit and veg is what works for me, as I’ve lost 4 pounds in 2 weeks.
    What kind of diet do you do, and how many pounds have you lost? thanks for sharing the link btw. good luck!
