never been on a forum before, not really sure what im doing but just need someone else to talk to who might be in the same situation, and a little bit of extra support is always good right.
so ive had PCOS for a few years now and it didnt bother me at the start, wasnt having periods and was quite glad of it.
life has been upside down and inside out since then and am now in a very loving relationship with our wedding day set for 7th sept 2013
ive been on metformin for a year solid now and ive gone from no periods at all to one every month which is great, painful sometimes as we all know but hey i put up with it.
nothing was happening so i went to see my family GP, he booked me in for a blood test and it came back inconclusive, next month he sent me back again. i couldnt get to see him with the results from the 2nd one so went with my partner to see a different doctor, who sent him for a test in january and booked my in at the hospital to see a fertility doc. (i guess getting a second opinion can sometimes be good)
so we went today to see the doctor, he was impressed that i had lost weight as im on the cambridge diet, lost 2 stone in 6 weeks. next stage is a ink x-ray test and another blood test. thats not what im worrying about so much, the doctor told me that metformin in some cases has been proven not to work and suggested i stop taking them, at least a week before my blood test but after that, stop taking all together as ive done well with the weight loss program im on.
so if i stop taking them will my periods stop again? i dont want that to happen and forgot to ask him, has anyone else been told this by a doctor? and what happened. im sure in my case, if i lose more weight and get my BMI down my hormones will surely level themselves out, just cant help but feel sometimes its something not so simple.
thanks for reading though, sorry i seemed to have gone on a bit...
would be grateful for a reply.
