I think you got confused between the Herbs Chaste Berry and Indian Berry.
The herb which is highly effective for curing PCOS is Chaste Berry and not this herb. I would suggest you to please visit the page Chaste Berry in the herb section of this website and look for the method of using the herb to cure PCOS.
All the very best!!
