hopeful: I feel the same, I was on BCP for approx 10 years and I had no signs of PCOS, since I stopped taking it, first I thought my cycles were just evening themselves out, then after a while, I noticed I was getting excess hair, not too much, but too much for my liking lol. Then after my year of ttc was up I went and got blood tests and scans and was all confirmed. I'm sure my BCP covered all my signs really well (except retaining weight, I've always struggled to lose weight) but if I have these problems conceiving this time, why would I want the whole delay of coming off bc next time??

I will let you know how I get on with my blood tests, my doctor has mentioned putting me back on the pill which I'm gutted about, but if my hormone levels come back as they're messed up and she won't give me anything else, I guess I won't have a choice but to try it

wow more people! welcome guys!! il try and get all of you, but sorry if i miss anyone out!

its so good to hear how everyone is getting on...but im confused as to why you would need to go back onto the bcp katherine? how can that possibly help?

Chiles, hi! Good luck with your treatment!!
Babyfever…I bet youre so excited to be starting clomid! I hope it goes well for you!!

Hopeful – I hope your FS goes well. How long are they saying you will have to be on bcp for? To me this still seems counter productive..i can only think that maybe its to try and level out your hormone levels?

Katherine, how do you find the vitex? Im considering it, but was thinking I might wait until ive seen the fs before I start…how were your cycles before you started taking it? And how much did it make a difference?

Im really hoping this is our year girls!!! Loads of for 2012 babies!

I don't know either! She just said she thinks my mid cycle spotting is caused by a hormone imbalance and unfortunately the treatment for hormone imbalance is the BCP I will ask her when my bloods come back if there isn't anything else I can have instead, my DF just keeps saying I should listen to her because 'she knows best' but I just don't think she does! I don't see how putting me on a pill to stop me conceiving will help me conceive! Silly woman!

I take vitex from cd 1 to when I get my pos. opk and I had my first ever 28 cycle after three months taking it! I then stopped taking it for a couple of months and my cycles have gone back up to over 30 days again (I know that's still not bad though!) xx

so, any pcos'ers who are young ttc who care to join me?
i'm fairly confident i don't have pcos (although am being tested for it tuesday), but my brothers girlfriend has it and shes now almost 27wks pregnant, they werent trying for very long either! hope this gives you a bit more to look forward to x

Hi. I am 26 and just got told that I have PCOS. They put me on my first round of meds to see if something happens. I have been trying 7 months without knowing so I hope the medication does the trick.

I hope to start this if feb, find it strange that my doc said she'd give me it when I see her in feb rather that when diagnosed in Dec
