  • Can I take OviVance™ if I am not trying to become pregnant?

    Yes, of course. All the ingredients in OviVance™ are safe for everyday use, and enhance health whether you are trying to fall pregnant or not. While they may act to enhance fertility, they will not interfere with the actions of oral contraceptives, induce excessive menstruation or have other ill effects if you have no goals of having a child.

  • Can I take OviVance™ for enhancing fertility or a healthy pregnancy if I don’t have PCOS or MetS?

    While inositol is included in OviVance™ specifically to aid in insulin and hormonal balance in PCOS and MetS, it is an extremely safe molecule, and will have no ill-effects if you do not suffer from any of the above conditions. In fact, inositol has been shown to have some benefits when taken by healthy people. The remainder of the ingredients are all vitamins and minerals that, while beneficial to persons with metabolic conditions, are also essential to health in pregnancy and general well-being.

  • What is PCOS and what might suggest I have it?

    PCOS is a condition that results from an imbalance in reproductive hormones, which leads to irregular ovulation, disrupted metabolism and cosmetic issues. Symptoms sometimes start around puberty, especially if hormonal imbalance is the main cause, but can also develop later, often in response to weight gain and insulin resistance.

    Importantly, PCOS is not a clear-cut disorder, each person can experience varying degrees of the symptoms below- some may have just one or two while others have many.

    The main symptoms of PCOS include, and can be varying combinations of:

    • Infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual cycles and associated infertility, resulting in infrequent or irregular menstruation and sub-fertility)
    • Heavy bleeding (irregular periods can lead to heavier bleeding when menstruation does occur)
    • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight (the interplay between insulin resistance and androgen excess is complex, and often leads to difficulty in managing weight)
    • Abnormal hair growth
    • Thinning hair or male-pattern baldness
    • Acne
    • Darkening of the skin, particularly along neck creases, the groin and underneath breasts
    • Skin tags (small growths or bumps of skin, especially in the armpits or neck area).
    • Polycystic ovarian morphology (multiple ‘cysts’, or small, fluid filled sacs in the ovary). Only your doctor can check for this.

     

     

  • Does OviVance™ really work?

    Independent research has shown that the ingredients contained within the scientific-natural blend of vitamins and minerals in OviVance™ help to optimise reproductive health, both before and during pregnancy. OviVance™ is also known to combat insulin resistance related to common reproductive and metabolic disorders like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Metabolic Syndrome (MetS).

  • How long does it take for OviVance™ to work?

    Each person’s reaction to treatment is different, and depends on your level of Insulin Resistance. Insulin Resistance is a progressive disease that increases in severity over time, with increasing effects on your body. Most people taking OviVance™ have seen positive changes within a few weeks to a few months.

    Remember, if Insulin Resistance (the underlying cause) is left untreated the symptoms will return or even increase as Insulin Resistance increases. If properly treated, however, the conditions and effects
    are reversible.

  • Does OviVance™ only help if you have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?

    OviVance™ can benefit you in many ways, including helping with:

    • PCOS and its symptoms
    • Insulin resistance related to common reproductive disorders.

    • Metabolic Syndrome.

  • Will OviVance™ help with the symptoms of PCOS?

    Yes, OviVance™ is specifically designed to optimise reproductive health and ovarian function, by combatting insulin resistance related to common reproductive disorders like Polycystic Ovarian Sydrome (PCOS). The specific ratio of the Inoline-F blend of ingredients in OviVance™ has a more rapid response in insulin sensitivity and hormonal imbalances, thereby minimising the symptoms of PCOS including central obesity (excess weight around your waist), irregular menstrual cycles, infertility, acne, excessive hair growth, hormonal hair loss and hyperpigmentation.

  • Can OviVance™ be used for just general woman’s health needs or just for PCOS?

    OviVance™ is a unique blend of scientific-natural ingredients, proven to optimise reproductive health and healthy ovarian function, making it perfect for female health.

  • Will OviVance™ interfere with my contraceptives?

    No, OviVance™ will not interfere with the actions of oral contraceptives. In fact, the scientific-natural blend of ingredients in OviVance™ can be used in combination with your pill or other contraception to better regulate your menstrual cycle, not to mention the other female health benefits you’ll get.

  • Can I use OviVance™ with Folic acid?

    You do not need to take in extra folic acid if you are using OviVance™ it is an all in one product. The Folate in OviVance™ is the natural form of folic acid (synthetic form), which means that, with folate, your bioavailability is better through rapid absorption, making it safer to use too.

  • Will OviVance™ help to regulate my period?

    Yes. Hormonal imbalances negatively influence oocyte development and ovulation, which leads to irregular menstruation, ovary disfunction and infertility. The specific ratio of the unique Inoline-F blend of scientific-natural active ingredients in OviVance™ leads to rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity and hormonal imbalances, resulting in improved menstrual function and regulation.

  • How long before I see results in my menstrual cycle?

    Each person’s reaction to treatment is different, and depends on your level of Insulin Resistance. Insulin Resistance is a progressive disease that increases in severity over time, with increasing effects on your body. Most people taking OviVance™ have seen positive changes within a few weeks to a few months.

    Remember, if Insulin Resistance (the underlying cause) is left untreated the symptoms will return or even increase as insulin resistance increases. If properly treated, however, the conditions and effects
    are reversible.

  • Is spotting or bleeding normal after starting to use OviVance™?

    Every person reacts differently to treatment, which depends on your level of Insulin Resistance and the severity of your Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). The good news is that both the condition and the symptoms respond well to treatment.

    The specific scientific ratio of the unique Inoline-F blend used in OviVance™ causes a rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity and hormonal balances, and has shown to have an effect in you already, i.e. spotting/bleeding is not uncommon and is actually a good sign that the product is starting to work.

    Because OviVance™ treats an underlying condition and not just the symptoms, it may take up to 1-3 months to stabilise your hormones and regulate your periods.

It is safe for everyday use and is designed to enhance overall female health.

  • Does OviVance™ help with fibroids?

    Yes. An imbalance of hormones in the uterus creates and optimal environment for fibroids to develop. OviVance™ contains the unique Inoline-F blend of scientific-natural ingredients that leads to rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity and hormonal imbalances, and can help re-establish healthy hormone balances in the uterus.

  • Does OviVance™ help with cysts?

    Yes, the specific ratio of the Inoline-f blend in OviVance™ leads to rapid improvement in hormonal imbalances and optimises reproductive health and ovarian function. However, we recommend that you see your gynecologist immediately if you suspect that you have cysts.

    • have had ovarian cysts in the past
    • have irregular menstrual cycles
    • were 11 years old or younger when you had your first menstrual cycle
    • use fertility drugs
    • have hormone imbalances

  • Does OviVance™ help with menopause?

    Yes. There is a mutual inter-relationship between menopause and Insulin Resistance. Age, hormonal changes and abdominal weight gain affect how cells respond to insulin and is predictive of Insulin Resistance in menopausal women. Insulin Resistance is also a primary mediator of the Metabolic Syndrome and many studies have shown an increased risk of Metabolic Syndrome in menopausal women.

    OviVance™ contains the Inoline-F blend of scientific-natural active ingredients.  This specific ratio leads to rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity and hormonal imbalances. OviVance™ also contains a blend of vitamins and minerals that were carefully selected based on the scientifically- proven results it has on women’s health.

  • What time of the month is a woman fertile?

    Usually, ovulation occurs 2 weeks before your period starts; this is the most fertile time in a woman’s cycle. So, if you take the number of days in your usual cycle and subtract 14, you’ll be able to determine the best time to try and conceive. For example, a woman with a 32-day cycle would likely ovulate around day 18 (32-14=18), while a woman with a 28-day cycle would ovulate around day 14 (28-14=14). Intercourse should take place regularly on the days before, on the day and a few days after for the best chance of falling pregnant.

  • How can a woman tell if she ovulates?

    A regular period is the best indication that you’re ovulating. Count the first day that you have a full flow of blood, to the next time and day you have a full flow this will tell you how many days are in your menstrual cycle. Usually, having a cycle that is between 24-36 days is considered regular. Keeping track of your menstrual cycle is a valuable part of your medical history, should you need to see a fertility specialist.

  • Is my stress causing my infertility?

    Increased cortisol level due to chronic stress can have a negative effect on your reproductive health. Trying to conceive can contribute to extra stress on a couple’s relationship and should not be ignored. NeuroVanceTM can combats stress and anxiety and can be used in combination with OviVanceTM and other medication.
