    I have been on metformin trying to get pregnant since January. I have a period around every 36 days. My last period was the beginning of September. I missed my period in October. My online tracking says I'm 54 days without a period and 17 days since my last missed period. I've taken home pregnancy tests and they have said no. I just went to the doctor Friday 11-9-12 for a blood test they ran my hormone levels and called me today and said that I was not pregnant that my hormone levels were like.01? I am very frustrated and don't know what to do now. Do I wait for my next period to see if it comes or schedule and appointment with the doctors to chech me out? We have been trying for 2 years now and nothing yet. We had his sperm count tested and it was ok. Please help???

    Schedule an appointment with your OBGYN. You are most likely not ovulating. This can be corrected.
