: I read somewhere that Saw Plametto (herb) was used for treating Hirsutism. I am not sure about it but i bought it anyway at GNC. I want to know If any of you have tried It? And for the experts, Is this a good Idea for me to take this? And will It work. Even If It works a little i will be happy. Also I am so glad to know that I have all of my Cysters to talk with. I love you all :)

I just found this site! I was diagnosed with PCO and had no idea what to do. I was placed on birth control pills but they always make me sick and do not control my excessive bleeding. Approximately 1 1/2 yrs ago God blessed me by placing a physician in my path who has an MD however uses herbal medicines in his practice. He suggested that I take Saw Palmetto for my high testosterone and drink Cat's claw and Red Clover teas for their muscle relaxant characteristics and plant estrogens. After I'd say about 2 months my cycles became regular and my testosterone level went from 100 to 50. It stayed that way for a year until I stopped taking it (I have no plausible reason for doing this). Anyway, after I quit taking it a few months later my blood pressure went back up, my cycle was off and recently I went to see another physician for a physical my testosterone had risen to 98. I have gotten back on my Saw Palmetto regimen and my cycle has again become normal. I am not suggesting that this will do the same thing for you, but it may help.
