    Post Glucophage, brown spotting, and progestorone levels

    I have PCOS and I normally post on the infertility board. I started glucophage months ago and I normally have regular 28 day cycle when i started except for last month and it came 3 days late no big deal. I went to the doc becasue i was taking the at home opk and it kept showing that I was not ovulating so i had the progestorone test done on aug. 4 and it did not show that I o. so i went in again on Thursday

    The doc. said my numbers on monday were .37 and thursday went up to .9 so it went higher so he said it shows I o. but now it is the 18 and I have still not seen af. I took a preg. test at home on Saturday it was -. (Does anyone ever had a CVS brand hpt that worked well, or do I need to wait longer)

    after bd on thursday their was a spot of brown blood. and I have had very light spotting since then of the same brown spotting or sometimes when i wipe a light pink. I had to go back in for anouther progestorone test today and I also took a blood preg. test.

    Does anyone else have any similar experience
    -with glucophage
    -brown spotting-
    -progestorone levels

    my dr. put me on glucophage because he said that since diabetes runs in my family, i need to take extra procaucions while ttc. I do not have diabetes, but he said that when you are ttc and are unable to sometimes this helps. he said that i was fine, but needed to lose some weight, because i was right in the middle of the line for what could develop into diabetes. HE said that some women can get a coating on there eggs, (when they have high or borderline sugar, and insulin levels.) which makes it harder for the sperm to get into the egg. which can make it harder ttc. sorry this is not much info. this is all he told me. i have been on the med. for about 6 mo. i have not noticed any brown spotting with it, but i know that if you have low progesterone levels it makes it difficult to conceive. hope this helps. sorry if it does not. good luch though

    I am on glucophage because I have PCOS.

    AF is still not here, I am waiting for the results from the progestorone test and the hcg test.
