This case study is written about a client of mine, Ms P, who had been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). She already had a little boy from an uncomplicated and previous pregnancy
but was desperate for a sibling for him. She had an erratic menstrual cycle and had experienced two miscarriages.
Unfortunately the NHS doesn’t have the funds to refer patients to a specialist until the patient has knowingly experienced at least 3 miscarriages. With this in mind Ms P came to see me first to see if there was anything she could do, within her control, to help herself before it came to that.
After our consultation, I provided her with an in-depth and personalised nutritional protocol and arranged a follow-up consultation to assess progress 6 weeks hence.
Ordinarily I recommend that my clients abstain from unprotected sex for 3 months whilst following a nutritional protocol, however at our 6 week follow up Ms P happily told me that she was already pregnant.
We reviewed her nutritional protocol and changed the focus from pre-conception care to ante-natal care. Thankfully she then carried this baby full-term and gave her son a little sister.
