Hey, I'm new to this site but thought I would give it a chance to hopefully help relax my mind. A little background on me, I was very athletic and active and had very abnormal periods when I was a teenager with terrible cramps/acne/mood swings so I was put on BCP. I was married in October this past year and came off birth control at that time (12 years of BCP, normal periods while on it). Since then my periods have been abnormal with my last normal one in feb.I called the doc and had an u/s and bloodwork and was told I have PCOS. They put me on progesterone to have a period which worked but now what? We had briefly discussed the use of metformin and clomid but she will not consider putting me on anything until she gets my husbands sperm analysis back. Anyone have any information about one or both of those medications? Were the side effects (which I know can be different for everyone) worth it to help normalize ovulation and attempts at trying to conceive? I am trying to not think about it and just let things run their course but as you all know everyone has those 'helpful' suggestions and I can't help but cry and get emotional when I know we would make great parents. It's like I can't keep myself busy enough with doing other things to keep my mind from wandering to what I'm doing/or not doing to make it happen. Sigh, sorry for the rant.
