Conceiving/PCOS >> Possibilities?!
darlenelac16 posted:
Hello, My husband and I have been trying to conceive going on 2 years now. We really want to have a child, and PCOS is in the way Last year during this time, I was obese, reaching 213 pounds. When I found out I had PCOS and irregular long lasting periods, I decided to become healthy for myself. I now am 48 pounds lighter!! 165 pounds, and I'm hoping to get a lucky break conceiving soon!

-I've been on Metformin for 3 months now, and for the first month my period was regular, then it started being irregular and long again. I started provera last month when the bleeding wouldn't stop, about the 14th day, and 7 days later the bleeding stopped. I just dont know whether or not I should take provera again this month for 10 days or not!!! I just wish I had a normal regulated cycle. It's so stressful!
