Weird NPC experiences & PCOS
hey, i hope someone who uses NPC or who is an otherwise expert on the stuff can help me figure this out.
i started using NPC at the end of my last cycle. i have PCOS, my cycles are irregular to say the least, and i'd used up some of the provera i had and still wasn't getting a period. so i tried the NPC (the lifeflo stuff in a dispenser) and started spotting three days later. this is good--i got my TOM.
in doing some reading online and in dr. lee's book, i noticed that if you use NPC for 21 days after TOM then you can suppress ovulation thereby doing my poor PCOS ovaries some good. so i did it. but i'm almost positive i ovulated in the middle of the cycle and now (the day after my 21st day NPC application) i'm spotting like i'll be getting my TOM in a few days.
so i'm not sure what to think. NPC is supposed to be suppressing my cycle, giving my hormones a chance to balance but instead it may be improving the quality of my ovulatory cycle. i don't get it. plus, this cycle may be the shortest in the history of my cycles. even when i weighed less and was ovulating like clockwork, my cycles were 32 days. this one looks as though it may be 28-29 days. unheard of for me!
so i guess i want a way to interpret this cycle where i used NPC to suppress ovulation but i ovulated anyway. anyone have a clue? also, does this mean that i have to use NPC 21 days in a cycle to ovulate instead of just the last half of the cycle?
i would love some insight about this. i read about NPC in lee's book and at websites but i haven't seen anyone talking about using it the whole cycle and the cream CAUSING ovulation.
i'm also taking calmag, alfalfa, chromium, selenium and a multivitamin but i've been the most consistent with the NPC at night and not as consistent with the supplements.
thanks in advance for any help with this!
