I'm not on the extended release. He took me down to 1500mg about a month ago. He is not very flexible with things. I am frustrated with the whole process as a whole but that is another story. He won't tel lme what he plans to try next except let's jsut see waht happens after a few more months of this.View Thread
Well, I have been on Met for a long time now. Probably 8 months or so. I started with 500mg and then went to 1000mg. I was fine on the 500mg and the 1000mg made me just a bit queasy every now and then but nothing that I really noticed. He bumped me up to 2000mg and I couldn't eat a thing without getting awful diarrhea. So, he took me down to 1500mg. If I eat something greasy (which is not often) I will get diarrhea for sure. So, I try to stay away from that stuff. I have completly changed how I eat in order to lose weight. I eay lots of fruit and veggies and only wheat breads and stuff. But I am still sick to my stomach all the time. And then some days it is worse than others. Pepto won't help and I feel like I could throw up at any second.
I just can't take it anymore and especially since I know that he is going to keep me on it. It wasn't working at all at the 1000mg and I refuse to go back up to the 2000mg. I also know that I won't get used to it. My tummy gets upset easily and this is just making it worse.View Thread
Ok, so I was on 2000mg of Met but I had to go down because it made me super sick. I have pcos and just flat out don't get AF without provera. So, my doc took me down to 15oomg of Met a day. I am still real nauseous and feel like throwing up. It was fine at first, but I almost lost my breakfast this morning.
I talked to my docs nurse last week I think to find out when I need to go back in. He had said he wanted me on the Met at this dose for a bit to see if it worked. So, she told me to call when I started and after me asking a few times, she told me to call on June 6th. I kept asking when do I need to call when I don't start, because I know I won't.
She always asks if I took a pg test and I always tell her no because I know it will be neg. So, here is where I need the advice. I am sick of feeling sick all the time. Should I take the pg test and call and tell them to do something or should I just hold out another month and see if he changes anything? My doc isn't known for changing. He usually just says lets do this for another couple months. I hate feeling like I am gonna toss my cookies all the time!View Thread
Thanks for your reply. I should have mentioned, I do have pcos. I was seeing my regular gyn and he had me do 3 rounds of clomid. That was 3 years ago. I took a year when I had no insurance and then my husband got a new job that has really good insurance. So, I have been seeing this doc for about 2 years now.
I am very frustrated by all of this. I actually got my period by myself for the first time in years last month. However, my doc was out of town and my period lasted for 3 weeks so they couldn't do the us they had planned on doing. I needed provera to make me start this month per usual.
I thought my doc was an re, but I aws wrong on that and that is my mistake. My gyn sent me to him. He specializes in infertility, but is not an re. The closest re to me, or even another doc that specializes in infertility is over 2 hours away. I know a lot of people would say it is worth the drive, and it is if you can do that. I have a full time job though and I also go to school. So dropping everything and driving that far for bloodwork is not realistic for me.
Everytime I start to freak and call my docs nure she tells me we are almost there and to just hang on a bit longer. Then when I ask her what the plan is she either says he hasn't noted anything and I can ask him next time I see him or that we are continuing with what we are doing for a couple more months. I mean, I feel like I am just being pushed aside.
When I was 20 I awas in a car accident. I sprained my neck and back pretty bad. The doc I was going to gae me some pills and said I was 20 and I would be fine. I was basically pushed aside and that is how I feel right now. I feel like they are looking at me and thinking I have pcos, give me meds that induce ovulation and I will be fine. Obviously that isn't the case because it isn't working. I turned 29 on the 10th of this month. I know that isn't old, but when trying to have a baby and having fertility issues are considered, it is. I just feel like one day they are gonna call me and say sorry! Can't help...you need ivf! And then I will be stranded with nowhere to go and no hope.View Thread
So, I have been on Metformin for 6-7 months now. I don't get af and I have to take prog. every month. I have been on clomid and had the tube test and all that junk.
My doc tells me to stay on the Met and call when I get af. Since I don't get af on my own, I have to call when I would be 14 days late. So I call and they have me go in to give blood. Then I get a call the next day that the pg test is negative (obviously) and they send in a script for prog. Then tell me to call when I start. Sometimes I do a 3 day bw and sometimes not. Apparantly this month I'm gonna go in for a us at some point.
I guess I just want to know wth??? It is the same thing over and over. I have been going to this doc for almost 2 1/2 years now. We have been trying to get pg for 7. I mean, how long until something else is done? Why is it the same thing over and over. I'm not even on the highest Met dose. I'm only on 1000mg. The first 2 months I was on 500mg. Has anyone else been in this situation? People keep telling me to find a new doc, but there isn't another one for hours. At least not one I can find and that takes my ins. What am I supposed to do? I feel like I am just going thru the motions and nothing. It obviously isn't working. Any suggestions?View Thread
