Hi, I am 28 years old married woman from past 3 years. I have pcos/pcod problem and undergoing ayurvedic treatment. My period cycles last for 35-37 days and I have moderate bleeding with abdomen pain. I would like to know if certain foods can be taken or not. Can I have 2 table spoon of fenugreek sprouts with little bit of curd or butter milk and pepper powder everyday? Or I should completely avoid curd/butter/cheese/milk products. Once in a day I have coffee with a table spoon of jaggery and some pepper powder. Is that fine? Which oils can I use for cooking? I try to avoid this sunflower oil as it is refined oil. How about mustard/sesame/coconut/groundnut oil? Is coconut water ok to drink every day? For period pain l boil ajwain cumin and fennel seeds and drink the concoction or sometimes I just add the ajwain. I don't eat chicken or other meats apart from eggs and fish. Please advise.

Yes you can.
"fenugreek sprouts with little bit of curd or butter milk and pepper powder everyday?- ok "coffee with a table spoon of jaggery and some pepper powder.- ok "mustard/sesame/coconut/groundnut oil"- naturally prepared ok. Coconut is better "is coconut water ok to drink every day?- no advantage no disadvantage. More important- pcod is a disease where there is a hormonal imbalance. Depending on your complaints, examination, reports, and stage of life treatment differs, and it also needs more time to get yourself treated with patience. Meet gynecologist in whom you have trust as you will need to go for a long time to him/her. Overweight is very common so in case you have that reduction of weight helps tremendously. Principles in loosing weight are some excercises, more protein and low carbohydrate and low fat (omega-6) but to maintain proper intake of vitamins, minerals. After 6 in evening to avoid carbs and take protein+fibre.
