    I have a question and hopefully someone has tried it and it helped. I have PCOS and I did 3 rounds of clomid w/ metformin last year with no success. I stopped trying after that, bcause it was to much. I did read something the other day about taking cinnamon to help w/ PCOS and there is a possibility that it can help you concieve. If anyone has tried it if you could let me know I would appreciate it. I really do not want to take anymore medicine.

    Hi monkeylove07,

    While I don't have any experience taking cinnamon to boost fertility, I did find this article on the topic that you might be interested in. It does say that women in the study conducted who took inexpensive daily cinnamon supplements had nearly twice as many menstrual cycles in a 6-month period than those who did not. A direct cause-and-effect relationship was not found, but the study does suggest a link. This might be something worth bringing up with your doctor or fertility specialist. We also have a Clomid Community where you might want to post your question to see if anyone there has tried this or any other natural remedy.

    Best wishes,
