Hoping for a solution

I am new to the site but I have been diagnosised with PCOS since I was 19 and now I'm currently 27. After my divorce when I was 20 I did not see a doctor for the next five years due to no insurance. After having my cycle for three months and finally having insurance I returned to the doc in 2009. Of course they gave me the provera attempted to start me on the metaformin. I did not take the metaformin (I still belived I could make it without drugs). Now a year later I am having the same problem. I have now been on my cycle for the past 70 days and I am beyond drained and in pain. My doc has given me two seperate prescripts for provera to deal with the bleeding and has started me on birth control and to tell the truth the bleeding has only increased.

I have found myself truly depressed and embarassed and have missed a considerable amount of time from work. I work at Macy's and have to be on my feet for eight hours or more. Needless to say that my work only makes the situations worse.

I am at a lost as to what to do. I do want to have kids but my goal for now is to get this situation under control. I really don't even have a question I just needed to vent to women who can understand what I am gowing through.

Sorry you are having such a rough time. I'm on Cycle Day #124, so I know exactly how you feel. Hopefully, once your body regulates its self with the birth control things will improve. I have extremely heavy periods and for about 2-3 days of my period I live in fear I might hemorrhage. I totally understand where you are coming from. I hope things improve very soon.

Thanks...I had a very sleepless night. I've called out of work for the last three days due to heavy bleeding and severe cramps and my employer has finally just had enough and I'm dreading the meeting today and my visit to the doctor. I hope we can get this undercontrol. Truthfully I feel as though I am losing my mind. I have a fiance who is attempting to be understanding but is sexually frustrated cause I haven't been in the mood and have been keeping always going strong.

I don't know what the doc is going to tell me. It's been a month since the last time I've seen her and we were suppose to meet up for my yearly pap but I haven't cleared up with both the provera and birth control patch. I'm truly scared I have a cousin who had to have a hysterectomy before she was 30 and I don't want the same thing. I'm ranting again, so many thoughts,so many concerns...
