My name is Ashley and like a lot of you, I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS in August. I went for 6 years not knowing what was wrong with me (never get AF on my own). I am asymptomatic (no symptoms of PCOS) so my Dr. never checked for it, finally I went to a new doctor and he confirmed it with an ultrasound in as little as 10 minutes! Right now I am taking Prometrium to start my cycle and Metformin 1000mg twice a day. So far, no luc kwith ovulating. Have an appt on May 10th to get my progesterene levels checked to see if I ovulated. If not, going to try Clomid for the first time. I am 25 and my husband and I have been "unofficially" trying for 2 years but "officially" trying for 9 months. Any support or success stories for me would be greatly appreciated. With so many people I know getting pregnant (i have like 10 friends right now pregnant, one whom works with me and just annouced it yesterday AND they weren't even trying!!!) it is a very hard time for me and would love some support from people so I know I am not alone! Thanks in advance and hope that we call get our BFP soon!View Thread
I was on the same dose of Metformin when I was first diagnosed in August. I had to stop after a month because the side effects were awful. I was constantly nauseated and couldnt hardly eat anything. This time around, I haven't really had any side effects. I don't know what happened in that few months to make that much of a difference. Maybe it is because I am trying to wat better and exercising more. Any luck with the new dosage and its side effects?View Thread
