Hi there. I'm in the metformin boat too. Started taking it three days ago 500mg then will be 1000mg from next Thursday.

Have bad horrid side effects... But I'm up for continuing if it gets me pregnant!

I have PCOS but regular periods (every 36 days)

As far as symptoms, definitely weight gain. I've always had a tendency to be overweight but when I did birth control I lost about 20 lbs without even trying and when I stopped Otto start ttc I found those lost 20 lb once more in the first month! Again I hadn't changed anything really though I had been eating a bit better and exercising more to help with ttc so if anything I should have dropped a few lbs! I was so mad. That was or of my tip offs that I have pcos. Wasn't normal.

Also I have the body hair issue and I despise it! I get hair on my chin and sideburns and Lao get it on my stomach and back. It's sick. I have to shave and pluck and wax everything constantly. Luckily my DH is very loving and understanding. Inside he's probably horrified by his wife's man hair!! Ugh! On birth control this symptom improved a lot though but now I'm off it the hai is back and worse than pre bc time.

Those are my 2 big external symptoms. The rest is mostly the internal stuff...no periods or ovulation, long cycles and irratic periods. In the past even just a little weight loss, like 20 lbs or less (not much when you have 100 to lose!) has really helped my cycles regulate. But I'm finding it very hard to lose weight now. Hoping the met will eventually help with this.

In terms of bad foods for met...I've heard sugar and carbs but for me carbs seem to be okay. It's more sugar and fat/grease. Heaven help me if I get fast food! Had burger king one night and that hit me really bad! But if I stick to low fat carbs I do fine on them.
really quite informative post as i felt sumhow like mine own, i auggest you to cook your food in olive oikm plus try to drink early morning before brush light hot water 1 glass with half spoon honey and 2 drops of olive oil inside, take cabbage soup daily in lunch and everything in your dinner with brown bread, and fruit veggies in salad ate as much as u can

dis is wt m doing now a days too, although my PCOS still nt detected waiting for test date

best if luck dear

RexyI, please let us know if you get your BFP!!! Fingers crossed you get a DARK second line soon!!!

Hi laurac! Have your side effects been every day? I only had an upset stomach here or there, hope you get to feeling better!

Aein, if you have PCOS and Dr wants to start treatment I would!! Why wait? Just make sure you tell the doc you won't be home for a while, that way you can see what course of treatment will be best for you in your situation As far as what the doctor will do first really depends on the doctor.

Oh no I'm sorry! I think you're body will adjust! But I'm with you, I'll deal with whatever it takes to get a sticky bean at the end of the line!

Hello, sorry for the delay, I had a couple more days of lines getting darker. I just did a clear blue test that actually says if ur pregnant, and I got my BFP!!!!! I'm so excited!

I seriously believe metformin, chlomid and accupuncture made it all happen. Stick out and fingers crossed it will happen for u all soon!

Yay RexyI!!!!! Sooo exciting!!!!! I love hearing about bfps! They give me so much hope, especially from fellow pcos sufferers. Best of luck to you and your sticky bean!

Babyjila - yay for the new doc! Sound sooooo much better than the old one!!! Hope all the meds work for you! I'm guessing clomid is my next step next month when I see my new doctor so I'm excited to see how they work for you this cycle

Welcome to all the newbies its so nice to hear stories from you all who understand and are going through the ttc struggle with pcos.

As for me - I'm cd 10 today. I took my last dose of soy last night (cd5-9). I did 150, 150, 150, 200, 200 for my 5 days of soy. Also on my 1000 met as well. Fx!!!! Really hoping to get a confirmed ovulation this cycle. I had a crazy temp drop yesterday morning but temp was back up this morning. Very odd.
