    Is this normal?

    Hello,

    I am 28 years old and I was diagnosed with PCOS about 10 years ago. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about a year and a half and in that time we have had one miscarriage (in September of 2010). Anyways, I am on day 9 of my cycle and I am experiencing spotting. It is not "heavy" per say, but it does seem like quite a bit to me. Also, I have not been feeling good all day (feeling a little nauseated and dizzy). I am on metformin and besides the bleeding with the miscarriage; I have never had bleeding between periods. I was just wondering if this was normal or if I should contact my PCOS specialist? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I had the same issues when I took metformin. For me it was the drug itself. Also sometimes if it isn't the drug it could be the want of being preganant giveing you the symptoms. I would check with you doctor
