Hi, loosing weight is the number one step to attain normal cycles and natural ovulation in women with PCOS. You may use such products if OK by your Dr as your medical history and which product you want to use specifically, need to be considered. More important is to adopt healthy lifestyle, i.e. regular moderate exercise and healthy balanced diet. Best is to consult a dietitian for expert advise. Best of luck.

Dear Friend,
I suggest not to take any ready made product for weight loss.
I am not against particular you have mentioned. As per my knowledge and experience dealing with many stuck case or rebound weight gain cases in such practice because they are not treating the root cause of problem.
As you are case of PCOS, i like to advise you
1, Walk 30 Mints ( Twice a day preferred ), Stationery cycling also have same result, but have break in every 4th day
2, Have 3 Major & 2 minor small meal
3, Have soya product , like have soya milk/Fruit in lunch or in dinner
4, Water intake 8 to 10 glasses
5,Avoid all highgylcemic foods
6, Try to have light dinner like toast/milk or wheat flaks
7, Dont skip meals

can discuss further
