I understand your hesitancy to try the Insulite PCOS System. It's great that you are being so diligent in monitoring your cycles and taking care of yourself.
As you probably know, there are a few ways to tell whether or not you may be ovulating. One is the presence of regular menses. Other signs of ovulation include a shift in the basal body temperature and the presence of fertile cervical fluid (also called "egg white" mucus or spinnbarkeit).
PCOS causes irregular menses for a number of reasons. As you read on our website, www.pcos.insulitelabs.com, the underlying cause of PCOS in most cases seems to be insulin resistance. With insulin resistance, the body becomes insensitive to the insulin produced by the pancreas, which leads to elevated circulating levels of insulin. This in turn leads to hormonal imbalances such as increased testosterone and other androgens (male hormones).
The increased testosterone is responsible for many of the symptoms of PCOS such as hair growth and abnormal menstrual cycles.
Elevated insulin also contributes to the formation of cysts in the ovaries in part due to the hormonal imbalances and also because the ovaries are highly sensitive to the influence of insulin. In women with PCOS, the ovaries are over-sensitized to insulin's effects. These ovarian cysts are also associated with irregular menstruation. I don't know what supplements you have tried in the past. I think our products are the most comprehensive products available. Many women have tried vitex and saw palmetto but have not properly addressed the insulin resistance.
I hope you consider using the Insulite PCOS System to help improve your experience of the PCOS. If you have PCOS, getting your insulin regulated will reduce ovarian cysts and additional hormonal imbalances, thereby normalizing your menstrual cycle.
