PCOS, Insulin Resistance and Infertility

I came to Lorri frustrated, tired, and thirsting for guidance. I had been diagnosed with PCOS after my husband and I had been trying to make a baby for about a year. Unfortunately, my doctor had very few suggestions other than IVF. It’s true, if I had tried IVF it may have gotten me pregnant, but I wanted to get healthy and correct my hormonal imbalances that caused my infertility, weight gain, fatigue, and insulin resistance. Most importantly, I wanted my body to be health enough to carry a healthy baby to term. My doctor recommended acupuncture and that’s how I met Lorri. I call Lorri my angel because she gave me hope, direction, and empathy. She guided me towards a diet and vitamin regimen that put me on the right path to correcting my PCOS and to getting my body ready to become pregnant and most importantly to carry a healthy baby to term. I saw Lorri once a week and every time I came to see her, it made me feel better, like I was on the right track. It took me about a year to lose the 50 pounds the PCOS had caused me to gain and to balance my estrogen and progesterone to the point where I was having (almost) regular menses. Today, I am 21 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl and I thank god that he brought me to my angel, Lorri.  -Amanda
