Know Hope's Blog > Took The Plunge - Started Spiro

Posted 26 July 2013

This is going to be really long, to record what discoveries I've made in the last few months.   The TL;DR version: I'm now taking a low dose of spiro and supplementing with a dab of progesterone cream for the 2 weeks prior to my period.  Also, I found a really good article that breaks down PCOS and acne and how to treat it holistically:...


Know Hope's Blog > A Setback, But Now Things Seem To Be Back On Track...
