I'm pretty sure I ovulated for about 5 cycles after having him. I want to say I had my first period 2 months pp. But now they are all over the place. But much shorter than before. Before pregnancy they were everywhere 3-6 monthd, now I think my longest was 50 some days.

Thanks. He is such a cutie bug. No idea where those genes came from.

Hi ladies

I'm back ttc #2 as well. I've got pcos too and I am expecting it to take a while again. First time round took nearly a year but I managed to ovulate then (managing via diet and exercise) and fall pregnant on that cycle so I haven't had any experience with met/clomid. Hoping to get back into better lifestyle first and see how that plays out, but I am very impatient.

krissie, did u get ur hormones tested after givin birth? also ur eating habits probably changed due to breastfeeding, that can play a big role when it comes to ovulating.

May55, 8 days! im opposite, my longest af would be 2.5 days. Last cycle i had 5days bleeding due to metformin so yea its probably met thats making bleed longer than usual.

tweetybird818, holaaa! i heard diet and exercise can help pcos ladies get pregnant and thats why i have been dieting/exercising but no result yet. How long it took you to see results? Did u have to lose weight?

No, my doctor did not want to test after I had him. Which I was surprised about since he was a new doctor. But honestly, things are pretty well back to how they were before just shorter annovulatory cycles. I do eat less carbs now though so I think that has helped with my cycles.

OOh good to know ! thanks! I honestly had no idea that Metformin could possibly have that affect and Ive been stressing about it being just another thing "wrong".

Since i started using metformin, my hair is falling more than usual. I know metformin can cause b12 deficiency, should we be taking vit b12 to prevent that?

Golden- I started taking a b-complex and I have felt so much better. And I have had less hair loss. I don't think it would hurt to take a little extra. B is one of the water soluble vitamins so your body excretes whatever is unused.

I take spring valley b100 complex. I also take nature made D3 2000 iu. And I take 800 mg of folic acid. I don't take a prenatal because we are trying for a slight girl sway.

I know I have low vit d because I had it tested at my annual check up. It was in the borderline range so I started supplements.
