Ovasitol Frequently Asked Questions

Ovasitol is a unique supplement for any woman with PCOS that combines myo- and d-chiro-inositol in the body’s naturally occurring ratio of 40 to 1.  This ideal ratio has been shown to reduce insulin, regulate periods, restore hormone balance, and improve egg quality and ovulation. Many women who take Ovasitol report a significant reduction in carbohydrate cravings. Here are the answers to the most common questions about Ovasitol for PCOS.

Can I take Ovasitol with Metformin?  Does this replace Metformin or do I take it with?

Please ask your doctor or other healthcare provider about taking Ovasitol with Metformin, or taking Ovasitol instead of Metformin.  Because both inositol and Metformin have been shown to affect insulin levels and restore ovulation, they may have additive effects.  In one study comparing myo-inositol to Metformin, myo-inositol showed slightly better results for restoring ovulation and increasing pregnancy rates. You can take Ovasitol and Metformin at the same time. This article about taking the two together may be helpful.

Can I take Ovasitol and other supplements?

Yes, Ovasitol is compatible with all the supplements sold in the PCOS Nutrition Center Store

 

Can I take Ovasitol if breastfeeding?

Yes, Ovasitol can be taken while breastfeeding your baby. We still recommend talking with your doctor first.

 

Can I take Ovasitol if pregnant?

Yes, Ovasitol can be taken throughout pregnancy. Taking inositol during pregnancy may be beneficial.  Studies have shown that myo-inositol supplementation during pregnancy significantly reduces the risk of gestational diabetes.

 

Is it available in Canada?

OVASITOL PCOS

Ships FREE!

Yes, Ovasitol is available for FREE shipping to Canada.  Order here

 

I live outside of the United States and Canada. How can I get this?

Sorry, We cannot ship outside of the U.S. and Canada.

 

How long does it take to receive my order?

Your initial order of Ovasitol should arrive within a week if shipped within the US. Orders to Canada may take 2-3 weeks. Theralogix, the makers of Ovasitol will send you tracking information once it ships.

 

Will this help me regulate my periods?

Yes, studies show that inositol helps regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle (period), and restore normal ovulation.

 

How should Ovasitol best be taken?

Ovasitol can be mixed into any hot or cold beverage with the exception of carbonated soft drinks and alcohol. It is best taken along with a meal in two divided doses.

 

Does Ovasitol have side effects?

Overall, Ovasitol is well tolerated. We recommend starting with one dose a day with a meal for the first week to minimize any risk for a side effect. Inositol, at the dose found in Ovasitol, is not expected to cause stomach upset.  However, if you do experience stomach upset, try taking Ovasitol with a meal.  For example, mix one packet of Ovasitol into liquid and drink with your breakfast, and mix one packet of Ovasitol into liquid and drink along with your dinner. It’s also great in a smoothie.

 

 

What does Ovasitol taste like?

Ovasitol is a tasteless powder. Since everyone is different and has different tastebuds, it could vary. Some say it tastes a little sweet.

 

Can Ovasitol help me lose weight?

According to the research, inositol may help with weight loss. Some studies have shown that women taking inositol have significant weight loss compared to women taking a placebo.  It is important to continue eating a healthful diet and being physically active while taking Ovasitol.

 

Is this something to take to help get pregnant or for PCOS in general?

Ovasitol can be taken by women who are trying to get pregnant and by those who are not trying.  Research shows that inositol helps to improve fertility chances by regulating menstruation (monthly period) and improving ovulation.  Inositol has also been shown to improve egg quality, which is important for women trying to get pregnant.

Why hasn’t my doctor heard of this?

Your doctor may or may not have heard about Ovasitol.  Ovasitol is a new inositol product combining myo- and d-chiro-inositol in the body’s naturally occurring ratio of 40 to 1.  This inositol combination has been shown to be more beneficial than either form of inositol alone.

 

What if I don’t have insulin resistance? Will Ovasitol help me?

Ovasitol has been shown to restore hormone balance and regulate periods. Many women who take it find it helps reduce cravings. Other uses of Ovasitol are to help with acne and mood.

 

I’m not trying to get pregnant. Can I still take Ovasitol?

For women who are not trying to get pregnant, or older women who are past menopause, inositol has also been shown to lower insulin, testosterone, triglyceride, and blood pressure levels, and increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels. Many women who take Ovasitol also see a reduction in cravings for carbohydrate foods and sweets.

 

Can I give Ovasitol to my teenage daughter?

Yes, Ovasitol has been shown to be safe in children as young as 8 years of age. For many, taking Ovasitol can regulate periods, reducing the need to take birth control medications.

 

What makes Ovasitol so much better than other forms of inositol?

Ovasitol is unique in that it combines myo- and d-chiro-inositol in the body’s naturally occurring ratio of 40 to 1.  This ideal ratio has been shown to work better than myo or d-chiro inositol alone. Too much d-chiro inositol has been shown to worsen egg quality. Ovaitol is pharmaceutical-grade and is the only inositol supplement to be independently tested by a non-profit third party to assure purity and accuracy.

 

Why do the Ovasitol packets cost more than the canister?

The extra cost is due to the materials for the packets and the process of packaging the individual packets. Many woman like the packets because they are easy to travel with or take on the go so you never miss a dose. Both contain a 3-month supply of Ovasitol.

    Hi,
    I posted a question on another post related to Ovasitol and I thought of another question.
    Is there a possibility this supplement can cause weight gain? You describe the mechanism and enhancing insulin sensitivity…that would increase the amount of glucose that can enter cells. As seen with insulin injections in those with DM, can this promote weight gain?

    Thank you

  • Angela Grassi

    November 5, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    Ovasitol is not associated with weight gain.

    Is Ovasitol recommended for women with high levels of DHEA-S? I got my bloodwork done and I don’t have high ovarian testosterone. My PCOS is stemming from my adrenals.

  • Angela Grassi

    January 23, 2019 at 5:09 pm

    Yes, it can reduce high levels of DHEA-S

    The research isn’t clear yet. There is emerging research that inositol, the component in Ovasitol can help those with diabetes:http://www.pcosnutrition.com/can-inositol-benefit-type-2-diabetes/

  • Angela Grassi

    Husband and I have been ttc for over a year with no success. After I came off the pill in April of 2018 my periods became funky and irregular. I skipped several periods and my Dr would put me on Provera to get my period. I am now on my 3rd round of clomid on a higher dose (1000 mg). I didn’t ovulate last cycle and progesterone levels were low. Getting an ultrasound on day 12 of this cycle to check my follicles. Would Ovasitol help me at all???? I also have endometriosis. Thanks in advance for your answer!

  • Angela Grassi

    June 2, 2019 at 4:04 pm

    Hi! My daughter is 13 and recently diagnosed with PCOS with elevated insulin levels. May I ask how a child her age should be dosed with the product? We see an endocrinologist next week and I would much rather she try Ovasitol first before oral contraceptives or metformin. Thank you in advance for your guidance!

  • Angela Grassi

    July 29, 2019 at 10:46 am

    Hello ,

    I do not have PCOS but I do have insulin resistance.
    Can I benefit from taking mayo inositol or is this just recommended for women with PCOS?

  • Angela Grassi

    October 3, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    Myo inositol can benefit people who don’t have PCOS. It depends what you want to take it for. For example, it has been shown to lower glucose and insulin, improve fertility and help with anxiety in non-pcos patients.

  • Geeta

    September 25, 2019 at 9:09 am

    Does ovasitol cause hypoglycemia? I took the first scoop today after lunch and after 3-4 hours I started feeling dizzy,feeling of lightheadedness and gastritis.Are these effects due to ovasitol.? Please help.

  • Angela Grassi

    October 3, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    Ovasitol may lower blood glucose level. For that reason, we recommend having it with a meal. We also recommend balanced meals with carbs, protein, and fats to balance blood sugar levels best. I recommend starting with just one dose per day for the first week to make sure you tolerate it ok.

  • Nina

    October 4, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    Hi, how long does it take for ovasitol to start working in your body and notice a change;.?

  • Angela Grassi

    October 8, 2019 at 12:28 pm

    Nina, everyone is different but most of my clients see a reduction in cravings within the first 2 weeks. We do recommend giving it the full 3 months to see a benefit in regulating your cycles.

  • Angela Grassi

    December 12, 2019 at 10:12 am

    if it’s only been a short time of taking Ovasitol, I doubt that it is from it. We recommend giving ovasitol a good 3 months to help regulate your cycle and improve fertility.

  • Ash

    Hi my wife is taking Ovasitol since January 2020. She had her period last February but she is still complaining of breast tenderness and uterine pain even her period ended already 10 days ago. Is it a normal side effects of Ovasitol? Does her hormone still adjusting that is why she still experiencing discomfort? Do you recommend to lessen the dose of her ovasitol then observe for 1 week if the pain still exists? Thank you for your answer admin.

  • Angela Grassi

    March 4, 2020 at 9:09 am

    Hello, Ovasitol should not cause these symptoms. The symptoms you are describing could indicate pregnancy. If she is not pregnant, and symptoms continue, she could cut back to once a day and see how that is for her.

  • Laura F

    March 14, 2020 at 8:08 pm

    I drank some wine but also im taking Ovasitol , Does drinking alcohol affect Ovasitol? Worried

  • Angela Grassi

    March 23, 2020 at 10:59 am

    Moderate alcohol consumption is fine while taking Ovasitol. We do not recommend mixing Ovasitol into your wine or other alcoholic drinks.

  • Mandy Mohr

  • Angela Grassi

    March 23, 2020 at 10:57 am

    Yes, Ovasitol can still help to improve metabolic aspects of PCOS. Many people find it also helps to reduce cravings.

  • Tae

    March 23, 2020 at 10:40 am

    I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2017 & my doctor put me on birth control ever since. I just ordered a 3 month supply of Ovasitol & I’m currently confused by what I should do with getting off of the pills. Should I finish a pack then start the ovasitol or should I start taking the Ovasitol immediately then stop once I finish the pack of birth control pills? Help please

  • Angela Grassi

    March 23, 2020 at 10:57 am

    Hello, there is not a need to stop birth control pills while on Ovasitol unless you want to. Otherwise, it’s fine to start taking Ovasitol at any time.

  • Tae

    March 23, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Thanks so much for the response!!! I want to stop taking the pills so I can start TTC. & start the Ovasitol.

  • Angela Grassi

    April 3, 2020 at 10:29 am

    There isn’t a set amount of time. A lot of people use it for years because they see their symptoms return after a few weeks of stopping it. You can start it while taking Metformin. The two can be taken together. Read this article for more info: https://www.pcosnutrition.com/ovasitol-review/

    Hi there – Can you take Ovasitol if you have not been diagnosed with PCOS but have not ovulated in a year (and suspect you have PCOS). Are there any negative side effects to women who may have normal hormonal levels? Thanks in advance!

  • Angela Grassi

    April 24, 2020 at 11:03 am

    Yes you can take Ovasitol if you don’t have PCOS. While research is limited, it may help to improve fertility and ovulation in non-PCOS patients. It is well tolerated and should not have a negative impact on hormone levels.

  • Jessi

    May 15, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Do I need to be tested for PCOS before using this product? Could it be harmful if I do not have PCOS?

  • Angela Grassi

    May 22, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    No, ovasitol is not harmful. It’s a b-vitamin like supplement. People who don’t have PCOS can take it.

  • Aurora

    June 3, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    If you have a regular period before taking the supplement, will it effect it? I have PCOS, but I still get a regular period. I have other symptoms that seem to be helped by Oavsitol, but I don’t want my period to change.

    Hiya,

    I have started taking Ovasitol today.
    I am very excited to see the positive results!
    But I do have a question – apart from pcos I suffer from anxiety, high blood pressure and migraines.
    Would Ovasitol help with any of these?
    Also, is it ok to take Ovasitol with:
    1. Metformin
    2. Amitriptyline
    3. High blood pressure meds
    4. Sertraline

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Best,

    Dee

  • Angela Grassi

    September 3, 2020 at 10:50 am

    Yes, you can take ovasitol with those medications but they all have the potential to lower blood glucose so I would talk with your doctor first. Yes, Ovasitol has been shown in studies to help with anxiety, blood pressure, and migraines.

  • Jay

    August 30, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    Hello! I’m breastfeeding. Can I take ovasitol? Issue is I’ve spoke to two different doctors, and both are pushing me towards birth control instead for PCOS even though I’ve said no many times. They don’t like the idea of me going “rogue” and trying something off the Internet. I’ve taken ovasitol before though which they didn’t like either. So, can I take it? Thank you!!!

  • Jay

    August 30, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Hello! I’m currently breastfeeding and I wanted to know if I can take ovasitol. I’ve spoke to doctors about it and they said no and instead started pushing me towards metformin and birth control for pcos and insulin resistance. I said no to both many times. I’ve taken ovasitol before and it helped a lot. Can you help me out? Thank you.

  • Angela Grassi

    September 3, 2020 at 10:47 am

    Ovasitol has been shown to be safe for breastfeeding mothers. Since you are not our patient, we can’t advise it though and recommend you talk with your doctor and maybe show the evidence.

  • Jeanette Martinez

    Can ovasital suppress your appetite? I’m currently taking this and I feel like I’m not as hungry or I lose my appetite……. or maybe it’s just me. Also does taking ovasital have any affect on the liver?

  • Angela Grassi

    September 3, 2020 at 10:46 am

    Yes, ovasitol can reduce your appetite because it can lower insulin levels (insulin is an appetite stimulant). No, it should not affect your liver.

    I am doing OMAD (one meal a day with 23 hours of fasting period) diet. I have PCOS for 2 years..I am going to start Ovasitol for the 1st time. I want to know if it would be alright to have ovasitol while fasting?

  • Angela Grassi

    September 28, 2020 at 1:43 pm

    Ovasitol has not been studied on fasting individuals. We recommend taking Ovasitol with food.

    Thank you!! This product helped me conceive my second child after my PCOS diagnosis. My first child was via Clomid and I wanted to try to balance my hormones naturally before going that route again.

    I recently moved house and found some sachets I didn’t realise I hadn’t finished. They expired in Feb of this year, is it too late to take these or can I finish these off before starting my next pack? I have about 2 weeks worth.

  • Angela Grassi

    September 28, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    We recommend not using expired packets from February. So glad to hear Ovasitol helped you conceive!

    I have PCOS WITHOUT insulin resistance and my cholesterol levels are low. Can Ovasitol cause either of those to go even lower in someone with already low levels?

  • Angela Grassi

    September 28, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    Ovasitol does have the potential to lower glucose and insulin. Everyone is different. Some people find taking one dose a day is sufficient to help regulate periods.

    Can I take ovasitol in 7 days water fasting?

  • Angela Grassi

    We do not recommend fasting that long and cannot comment about taking Ovasitol during that time.

    Thank you for your helpful website and info on Ovasitol. I’ve started and stopped this several times because of side effects. Each time I start it off, it seems to cause nausea/fatigue for me so I stop. Is this normal? I do take it with meals and have only started 1x day for the first week. But after several days I start to get these symptoms. Are these symptoms normal and will they eventually subside?

  • Angela Grassi

    November 3, 2020 at 9:48 am

    Ovasitol is a sugar alcohol. Maybe try and stick to one dose for a month, with food to see if side effects improve.

  • Camille

    October 16, 2020 at 1:39 pm

    I’m having side effects of nausea and fatigue after a week of using Ovasitol. Will it go away and is this a common side effect?

  • Angela Grassi

    November 3, 2020 at 9:46 am

    You may want to start slower, with just one dose a day with a meal and after a week, add a second dose.

    Is it possible to take to much? I’m very new to this and wondering how this will affect my Insulin levels. My doctor gave me 2 options one was birth control the other he said was a pill used for Diabetes witch he told me he checked me for diabetes and I didn’t have them. So he said I could pick what one I wanted to take but he would recommend me not messing with my diabetes numbers. Could taking this be harmful?

  • Angela Grassi

    December 31, 2020 at 10:28 am

    Ovasitol can be taken with birth control and diabetes medications.

  • Monique

    December 7, 2020 at 12:17 am

    Will taking ovasitol or even inositol alone reduce effectiveness of birth control? As I know birth control is not 100% , does it increase chances of getting pregnant while taking birth control?

  • Angela Grassi

    No, Ovasitol does not interfere with birth control

    I was on BC (implanon) for SEVEN years! I finally removed it this year in January- I had no period for 4 months after removing BC. I was diagnosed with PCOS in June.
    Obgyn prescribed progesterone, started this in July and had a period. November came along and I lost excess amount of hair, my hair continues to fall out. I decided to not take anymore medication. Here we are in December and hair is still falling out.
    Do you know of any other women experiencing this? I have ordered Ovasitol and hope it helps. I am desperate to know since I want to salvage as much hair.

  • Angela Grassi

    December 31, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Most birth control medications suppress testosterone. It is not unusual to see symptoms worsen if stopping birth control. I hope ovasitol works for you. Here are more tips on hair loss: https://www.pcosnutrition.com/hair-loss/

    I have not had my regular periods from past 1 year and was on progesterone medication to regular my cycle. I have ordered my first supply of ovasitol and wanted to check if I can take it along with my medicine. My doctor hasn’t heard about ovasitol.

    Can I take Ovasitol with progesterone medicine my doctor has given?

    yes but we recommend discussing with your doctor first.

    Hi,

    I have been experiencing heavy bleeding (rare form of PCOS). I am currently taking norothesterone for 21 days and then taking a weeks break.

    Is it safe to take ovasitol at the same time as norothesterone?

  • Angela Grassi

    December 31, 2020 at 10:15 am

    Yes, ovasitol can be taken if you are also taking birth control medications.

    Has anyone ever stopped taking ovasitol and still got cramping every day and other symptoms like nausea, aches and pain, headaches. I’ve been trying to figure out if I’m pregnant as I only took ovasitol for 2.5 months and the cramping is daily still. I don’t see any reviews or withdrawals . Please help.

  • Steph

    January 3, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    If my canister expiration date is 9/20, should I order a new one or is it still good? I have at least half a canister left but I want to be sure before taking any. Thanks!

  • Angela Grassi

    January 15, 2021 at 2:06 pm

    Probably best to reorder

    yes, but just a few months out

  • Vanessa

    January 13, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    I’ve been taking ovasitol for about a week now and have noticed cramping like before my periods starts kind of crampings. Is this normal from taking ovasitol? It’s the only new thing I have added to my supplement routine. Also Ive been on metformin for about 6 months and never had cramping as a side effect.

  • Angela Grassi

    January 15, 2021 at 2:04 pm

    Yes, this is not uncommon. What you described sounds like signs of ovulation.

  • Satvika

    January 16, 2021 at 3:22 pm

    Will there be a spike or any adverse effect if I stop consuming ovasitol in the future ? Like since my body will be used to this supplement to lower my insulin levels will stopping this cause any spike in the the insulin levels and will it in turn cause weight gain and have other effects

  • Angela Grassi

    February 14, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    Good question! The long-term research on this supplement after taking is still unknown. Keep in mind, inositol is widely found in food and a relative of the b-vitamins.

  • Angela Grassi

    February 14, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    No, Ovasitol should help improve acne, not worsen it. I highly doubt it would affect you after 3 days of use.

    Hello,
    I came off the pill last year and haven’t had a period. I have done a lot of research which says d-chiro inositol can be bad for egg quality on its on own. I have in the past only taken myo-inositol but discovered this combined inositol.

    Can you confirm if this helps with ovulation and can be used for fertility and doesn’t effect the egg quality?

  • Angela Grassi

    February 14, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Yes, Ovasitol has been shown to help improve ovulation and is great for helping to get pregnant. Very high doses of d-chiro inositol (over 600mg daily) has been linked with poor fertility. Ovasitol uses a ratio of myo to DCI in a 40:1 ratio to mimic levels in the body.

  • Esther v

    February 20, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    I’ve looked so many times to see how long is it safe to take ovasitol.
    I see studies only go with 6 months of taking ovasitol. Outside of that, is it ok to keep taking it and if so for how long?
    Thank you!

  • Angela Grassi

    March 25, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    We really don’t know. As long as it works for you, you can continue to take Ovasitol long-term.

    I do not have PCOS but I have irregular periods, I sometimes go up to 9 months without it. I do not have Insulin issues either. But I’ve read this helps women get pregnant. Is this safe for me to take even though I don’t have PCOS or insulin issues? I’m just trying to get regular and try to have a baby.

  • Angela Grassi

    My period came a week after starting ovasitol. It lasted 9 days.

    After the main bleeding ended I kept spotting and it’s been 4 days of just spotting and all of a sudden I am bleeding again with all my PMS symptoms.

    Is that normal? Should I stop taking ovasitol while on my period?

  • Angela Grassi

    March 25, 2021 at 12:46 pm

    No, this is not a normal response to taking Ovasitol. I suggest contacting your doctor to see what else may be causing the prolonged and frequent bleeding.

    I’ve been taking Ovasitol for 2 months now, really do believe in the product, haven’t had any improvements in regards to a regular period but I do think that’ll come with more time. My question is, can I continue to take with either clomid or letrozol? (Drugs to help you ovulate/fall pregnant).
    Thank you

  • Angela Grassi

    April 28, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    It is recommended to take ovasitol for the full 3 months for best benefits. Yes, you can take while undergoing clomid or letrozole. Talk to your doctor first though.
