I Tried Premama Fertility for 3 Months, And Here’s What I thought
It’s not fun to be a PCOS sufferer. If you’ve been diagnosed with this condition, then you know what I mean. Irregular periods, sometimes no AF for months on end, hirsutism, weight gain, thinning hair, infertility — you name it. I hate it since I was 14, and unfortunately, I’m still stuck with it until now.
So, in light of my efforts to manage my symptoms, I’ve been doing some research to curb my PCOS naturally. I discovered that there are plenty of health supplements that can help with PCOS, and one of them is inositol. Further research showed that inositol is more effective than metformin in the treatment of insulin resistance, which is the main cause of my PCOS.
Unfortunately, inositol is not readily available in my country, which is the Philippines. So I did some online research and learned about Premama Fertility.
What is Premama Fertility?
According to Premama’s website, it’s a reproductive support supplement that helps improve a woman’s fertility. Myo-inositol, which is the main ingredient in Premama Fertility, is clinically proven to support egg quality and ovulatory function in women. Aside from inositol, Premama Fertility contains 200 mcg of folic acid to aid in prenatal health and to protect the fetus from possible development of birth defects.
I checked out Amazon.com and found some favorable reviews from different individuals. Some even became pregnant after they used the product. although it would be nice to hit that jackpot, the main reason I decided to purchase three months’ worth of Premama fertility was to improve my insulin resistance and regulate my period.
My Premama Fertility Review
What made me decide to try Premama Fertility is the price. They’re relatively cheaper than Pregnitude and Ovasitol, two popular fertility supplements for PCOS. Since they contained the same ingredients, which are inositol and folic acid, I decided to go for Premama. It has favorable reviews on Amazon, so I thought this could be a cheaper alternative.
Premama Fertility comes in a small box with 28 packets inside, which, I guess, is ideal for those who are consistent with their cycles. In other words, you have a regular 28-day cycle.
What I appreciate the most about this is that one packet already contains 2000mg of myo-inositol and 200 mcg of folic acid, which is not bad. The packet is easy to tear so all I had to do is just open one and pour it into a glass of water. There’s no need to measure the powder since the serving size of one packet is enough for one day.
According to the box, it’s best to mix it with other drinks, like juice or a fruit shake, so hide the taste. I don’t have a blender or a juicer and I’m not a fan of ready-to-drink juices, so I just drink it with a glass of water.
So far, it does what it promises. There’s almost no taste at all. “Almost” because I can still taste the inositol, though, it’s almost tasteless. It’s easy to miss if you’re not very sensitive to taste. If you can pick up the mildest taste, then don’t worry because inositol doesn’t taste bad. It’s slightly sweet, as a matter of fact.
Once poured into a glass of water, just give it a stir and the powder dissolves quickly. I usually just pour into an empty glass and pour water on it. I then give it a shake to dissolve the powder before I drink it.
I drank Premama Fertility for three months before I wrote this review. So far, it helped with my moods. Unfortunately, it didn’t restore my period and it didn’t give me a positive pregnancy test. Bummer. Upon further reading about myoinositol, they say that it takes three to six months to see results. I guess that explains the absence of a period.
Would I buy another three boxes of this supplement? Well, I thought about it but decided against it. For me, it just wasn’t worth it. I thought I’d just buy powdered inositol and a bottle of folic acid at my local health food store. I think this is cheaper than, say, purchase it on Amazon and have them shipped here. In case you’re wondering, I spent around Php2,500 in total, including shipping from the US to my place via Shipping Cart.
How about you? Have you tried this supplement? Did it give you the big fat positive?
