  • Can I take OviVance™ if I am not trying to become pregnant?

    Yes, of course. All the ingredients in OviVance™ are safe for everyday use, and enhance health whether you are trying to fall pregnant or not. While they may act to enhance fertility, they will not interfere with the actions of oral contraceptives, induce excessive menstruation or have other ill effects if you have no goals of having a child.

  • Can I take OviVance™ for enhancing fertility or a healthy pregnancy if I don’t have PCOS or MetS?

    While inositol is included in OviVance™ specifically to aid in insulin and hormonal balance in PCOS and MetS, it is an extremely safe molecule, and will have no ill-effects if you do not suffer from any of the above conditions. In fact, inositol has been shown to have some benefits when taken by healthy people. The remainder of the ingredients are all vitamins and minerals that, while beneficial to persons with metabolic conditions, are also essential to health in pregnancy and general well-being.

  • What is PCOS and what might suggest I have it?

    PCOS is a condition that results from an imbalance in reproductive hormones, which leads to irregular ovulation, disrupted metabolism and cosmetic issues. Symptoms sometimes start around puberty, especially if hormonal imbalance is the main cause, but can also develop later, often in response to weight gain and insulin resistance.

    Importantly, PCOS is not a clear-cut disorder, each person can experience varying degrees of the symptoms below- some may have just one or two while others have many.

    The main symptoms of PCOS include, and can be varying combinations of:

    • Infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual cycles and associated infertility, resulting in infrequent or irregular menstruation and sub-fertility)
    • Heavy bleeding (irregular periods can lead to heavier bleeding when menstruation does occur)
    • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight (the interplay between insulin resistance and androgen excess is complex, and often leads to difficulty in managing weight)
    • Abnormal hair growth
    • Thinning hair or male-pattern baldness
    • Acne
    • Darkening of the skin, particularly along neck creases, the groin and underneath breasts
    • Skin tags (small growths or bumps of skin, especially in the armpits or neck area).
    • Polycystic ovarian morphology (multiple ‘cysts’, or small, fluid filled sacs in the ovary). Only your doctor can check for this.
