  1. 6 years ago, I was under a lot of stress. Due to this, I started binge eating. Within a span of 12 months, I put on 22kg. And then my periods started delaying. When I visited my gynecologist, he said that the symptoms seem to state that I have PCOS. Hence he put me on Diane 35. I stayed on this medication for 3.5 years. However, all my efforts to lose weight failed because of this medication. I did some research and heard about Arogyam Pure Herbs Kit for PCOS. I contacted them and got advise from Dr. Vipul after sending him my blood reports for hormonal imbalance, etc. I purchased the kit and stopped taking Diane 35 at the same time. The first 3 months were hard because my body was not used to ovulating on its own and had become dependent on Diane 35. Hence I got my first period after using Arogyam for 3 months. Then each month after that has been completely regular. I have lost inches on my body too. I am still in the middle of my treatment and intend to complete it and cure the PCOS Completely. Thank you Arogyam!
