Metformin made my cycles slightly shorter but still irregular. They usually run about 36-40 days.
Last cycle I started spearmint and my cycle was 30 days with Ov on cd20
This cycle I continued spearmint and ovulated cd15

Will need a few more cycles to make a better comparison to pre and post spearmint, but usually I only get one freak short cycle then back to 36-40 days. And I haven't ovukated this early since I've been tracking, and that's been for the last three years

im only on clomid but im sure metformin would help me, but my gp prescribed me clomid and didnt wanna do much else, im still waiting to see a fertility specialist! i was reffered back in feb of 2014! im told i will be seen any time from feb-april and you get the appt a month before so eagerly waiting for my letter to arrive any week now.

ive only started the tea 3 days ago so cant comment on that yet i really hope it helps in either helping me grow a beany or prepares me for next cycle
im feeling so sore and achey today id major cramps last night that woke me a few times it was an extreme af pains. so confusing i dunno if i ovulated or not!
i really wished id tempted now but its so hard to keep them accurate with ds he wakes random times during the night so my temps usually end up all over the place

If the line on the right is the test line, I would say it is positive or very close!

I hope you get your referral soon, but even more I hope you won't need it!


I was on Met for a while. It didn't help me at all, it just made me sick all the time.

I'm trying to lose weight too, but I'm not willing to give up on sweetening my tea! I like it hot. So comforting during this cold weather!

So I've made my shopping list and got the spear mint written down as a necessity!
I am pretty excited to start this!

laura- I hate having long cycles...! Hopefully this stuff brings those days down to a more reasonable cycle length That is awesome that it is making you ovulate! Are you doing anything else with the tea?

red- It is recommended that women with pcos combine metformin and comid for better results. Hopefully when you get that letter you won't need to go to a specialist and will already have a sticky bean! :3
And that looks like a +opk!

Ginger- I had to get the extended release pills because regular metformin made me miserable! I was bloated, sick to my stomach in both ways and extremely cranky! ER has been much better on me and I was actually able to get up to 1000 mg! Wewt! lol

Penguin- Oh nooo! Well at least you have it for when you get back home

It's actually pretty common for women with PCOS to be resistant to Clomid. I know I am. 9 cycles and only successfully ovulated twice on it. Femara tends to work better, so if you have problems, give Femara a try. (Plus the side effects are so much less!)
