Hi, I've had PCOS for more than a decade and my periods have often stopped for long periods of time. Most recently, it's been more than a year. I'm on day 6 of the Atkins (low-carb) diet and voila -- period started. I poked around online and see that several fertility specialists recommend low-carb diets for PCOS patients because insulin can impact hormones and ovulation, etc. I'm sick of eating eggs and really want some fruit (no fruit during first two weeks of this diet), but I'd love it if a diet could lessen some symptoms. I wondered if anyone here has had any experience with how a low-carb diets and how they may or may not impact hair loss?
