Hiya!!!

I was diagnosed last year with it, (insulin related, hormone levels are fine) Doc put me on metformin about 3 months ago but side effects got too bad. I stopped for about 3 weeks and started again friday when I started my first round of clomid 50mg. I am now cd6!

Im the same as you Vic, mine is insulin based and was given met to help regulate cycles/loose weight, ive lost around 8lbs so far. My last cycle was 177 days so hoping it gets them down, even 40 days would be good! How long have you been on it? x

Oh I know, that annoys me too! My last cycle was 177 days so O'ing a few days late or having a few days longer cycle would make me so happy! Some people dont know how lucky they are!

My met side effects werent too bad, i started slowly and worked my way up to the full dose so minimise side effects...i had a feeling of nausea and the runs a bit :S at first but compared to what some ladies experience i think ive been lucky. Hopefully you will too. How are you finding them so far? x

Yeah I was the same with mine, we must be the lucky ones!

I see your taking Soya aswell? How have you found that? I tried it but still had a super long cycle with no Ov...I think I'd try them again if the met brought my cycles down.

Going to do another weight check this weekend (eeek) its roughly about 1lb a week although i hadnt made any changes to my diet or excerise so this week ive tried eating a low GI to see of that helps. Do you know what bmi/weight you need to be before your considered for clomid? x

Hey
Well first mth on soya i had a cd of 107 lol but it did say i ov but only had a lp of 8 days hmm. This mth says i ov on cd30 which i was well happy with but temps didnt stay high n on dpo 10 it took ov away. Now im on cd50 odd n it says i ov again 5 days ago. N with solid red line. But im also on like day 4/5 of metformin so not sure if thats messed it up. Or if its bought my period forward. Wil have to see
N fertility says my bmi has to be under 35 n think mines was 38. Which was bout another st or so
Hows ur cycle goin wat cd r u now. N do u chart on ff or take ov sticks

well i hope you dont have another long cycle, I can totally relate to it and its so frustrating. Im charting as well as using cheap opk's. FF is saying in 6 dpo but i think it would be highly unlikely that I o'd on cd14 and the opks have been bfn so its gotta be fluke temps. How about you? Are you ttc #1? x
