Thank you for this insightful article! I'm 29 and have been facing challenges with PCOS and irregular periods ever since my periods began. My experience has been a constant cycle of starting and stopping birth control pills (and other pills like Metformin and spironolactone), as without them, I've never had a regular period. But I stopped taking them last year, and six months ago, I began taking berberine supplements, and since then, I've noticed a significant improvement. My periods have become regular, occurring every 30-35 days. The only change I've made in my diet and lifestyle is the addition of berberine supplements, and I feel that they are the main factor in achieving healthier menstrual cycles.

Oh that is such great news. It does have significant evidence behind it and I am so glad it worked for you. What brand did you use?
