I posted previously somewhere in this group that I was going to start taking N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (A nutritional supplement) that has recently been reported to help lower insulin levels in women with PCOS - sometimes even reversing many symptoms. I was of course VERY cynical but decided to start taking it about 2 weeks ago. I read that after 6 weeks, many women had good results. So....I said I would write with my results as they occured - if I got any results at all.
Well, I am happy to reportI am actually having some benefits already and I felt I better pass this information along.
First off......I am taking 600mg 3x a day approximately 20 minutes before Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. (it was suggested to take on an empty stomach). Well, here are my results so far:
My facial hair is growing in about a day slower!!!!!!!!! I was NOT particularly responsive to Clomid - I ovulated but did not get pregnant after several cycles on high dosage. I have been noticing the past 2 days I have been getting OVULATION pain in my left ovary!!!!!!! I can't even believe it. Does it mean I'll ovulate completely - who knows. But.....I'd say....after 2 weeks - these are some promising results.
ALso.....my mood has been more balanced (my husband notified me of this). I haven't had as many moment of random rage - actually, almost none. BUT --- I did comletely get PMS type anger yesterday.
Ladies....this is just a nutritional supplement. It's CHEAP (I paid $10 per bottle of 60...600mg capsules on Newegg.com). 2 weeks and I am getting SOME improvement. Its working as well as the Metformin -- only I dont find myself in the bathroom all the time with this.
I'll keep everyone posted if the changes stay or if I get even better or any worse. But I'm telling ya........TAKE THIS STUFF. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who knew.
I'm not finding a LOT of research on the net - but I did find some. Do your own research if ya like -- but to me trying it for myself was worth it. I really thought it would be a flop - like everything else. I'm glad something looks promising for ONCE!!!!! :)
Feel free to message me with questions or your own experiences with the N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine :)
