TTC, losing weight while on metformin for diabetes and PCOS

Postby ashelton » Mon Mar 04, 2013 11:00 am

Hi I'm new here and just wanted to make a post and see what you all think about my situation. I am 23 and I have never had regular periods except for when I was bc. When I was 16 I was diagnosed with PCOS and I had surgery to remove a cyst from my right fallopian tube and they had to take the tube with it. When my fiance and I decided to start TTC 2.5 years ago I went off bc and didn't have a period. I went to the doctore and they put me on prometrium to jump start my body. Well I had a period but didn't ovulate and didn't have a period the next month. This went on for several months with no change. The doctor told me I needed to concentrate on losing weight and then come back. Well I started losing weight and then my mom became ill with cancer for a second time and I just put it all on the back burner. Now a year later I was recently given a dose of provera and had a period. I was also put on metformin to treat my diabetes and PCOS. The period lasted from the 27th of January to the 8 th of February. I was apparently supposed to ovulate from the 5th to the 10 th of February. My fiance and I had sex during this time to try and conceive. I was supposed to have another period starting on the 24th of February and it hasn't came yet. I have been feeling nauseous but I'm not sure if that's from the metformin. I have also been noticing some thick milky white discharge. It has no smell. This is not something I have had before. And also some mild cramping in my lower abdomen that is not like period cramps. Any advice, information, or just opinions would be greatly appreciated.

It sure sounds like you're pregnant. I would buy a FRER test and find out. Good luck! :D

Thank you for the response. I am going to buy one tonight and take it in the morning. If I'm not then I have to start another round of provera.
