I heard from a friend who also has PCOS that cinnamon can be a natural alternative to metformin. I'm trying to stay away from prescription drugs for as long as possible, so I picked some up to try out. It says on the bottle "do not take while pregnant." And I'm wondering if it's just because they're not sure of what the reaction to cinnamon is in a pregnant woman, or if it's like legit really bad for a pregnant woman. My friend thinks that they just don't know how it could react, but I wanted to see if anyone else had thoughts or if you've taken it before? I would stop taking it as soon as I found out I was preggers, of course, but I didn't know if I should try only taking it CD1-Ov just to be safe, or if I can take it until I get a BFP.
