Hi! I was diagnosed with PCOS in November after blood work and ultrasound confirmed my OBGYN's suspicions. I also had really irregular cycles. From January until I started seeing the OB in November I had only had 4 periods (in 11 months), one of which was induced with medication by my GP while I was waiting to see an OB. I am now taking Metformin 1500mg/day and my cycles have been getting supper regular, I've had 33-35 day cycles since I started taking it in Novmber!

I don't have pcos but I do suffer major irregular cycles I have been 2 years with only 1 period before which I never bothered seeing the doc about as I was young and presumed id just be told to wait it out, so thats what I did, other times I have 8 months between cycles but in december I started taking agnus castus 800mg a day and iv had 2 almost normal cycles :) xx

Hey all! Im glad to find some company with these crazy cycles.

I'm not sure if I have pcos or not. I had a dr that diagnosed me with it when I was 20 but the doctors I've seen since don't think it's possible I have it (no testing though to be sure). I stopped BC at the end of October and I'm only in my 3rd cycle. I never had regular cycles before starting BC so I can't expect to be regular now.

I have and I actually have some but haven't taken it yet since I'm not sure if it would be better to start mid cycle or at the beginning of my cycle. Do you know about that?

wow how long would it have been without help?

i had a 99 day cycle. i had to take progesterone twice.
before that i had been fairly regular between like 32-42 days.
i think my problem is with o but my dr wants me to try metformin and progesterone before clomid.
im just like ok but grrr just give me clomid already

sky, God only knows how long it would have dragged on! It could have went on forever lol. See I am also trying metformin, and its been 3 1/2 months and so far nothing yet! I have heard it can sometimes take several months so Im trying to be patient. But if I dont O this new cycle in a normal time, I am taking femara next time. These long stretches between O drives me batty!

Af is about to show, I have cramps and pink spotting. So I am thinking late tonight, or tomorrow will be CD1. Thank goodness!

Hows everyone else doing? :D

Hi Ladies

I'd love to join ths group. I was diagnosed with PCOS in January and the Dr put me on clomid and inositol right away. He also suggested that I try to lose some weight coz it will help with these annovulatory cycles.

I guess I've had this from when I was a teen coz I remember at one point I missed AF for 11 months and my face always broke out with acne and then the Dr put me on Diane (the contraceptive pill) and later I moved to triphasil pill. I took that for years and years...and now my hormones are all messed up :doh:

Last year the longest cycle I had lasted for 3 full months. I knew I wasn't pregnant coz I'd take my temps and see they were very low, showing no O!

Right now am 9DPO and am nearing the end of the TWW :)

Care, you remind me of when I was young, I'd get so excited that no AF came for so long coz it was such a nuisance...but now we are trying so hard to get AF so that we can be able to conceive...oh goodness, LIFE :doh:

:babydustg: Hello. :D

I'm Jennifer. I'm 36, DH is 57 ( :o ) And we are TTC #1.

My cycles are HORRIBLE!!! I've gone 6 YEARS once!!! But lately the longest has been like 76 days I think.

My regular cycle is 46 days long.

I haven't been diagnosed with PCOS yet, but I'm pretty sure I have it based on my symptoms. I am planning a doctors visit soon.

Anyway, I look forward to chatting with you all. :)

Jen
