PCOS with regular cycles

Postby dewey2 » Tue May 17, 2016 4:17 pm

I've been dealing with PCOS since TTC my son but now I'm older (almost 38) and running out if time to TTC#2. I am overweight (but 10 lbs down!), have the facial hair, etc but I have regular periods. I am BD when I should be but nothing. Does anyone else have this issue?

I started Plexus about a month ago. It's for things like weight loss, PCOS, balancing blood sugars, etc so I'm hoping to have luck with that. The things that worked with my son don't work now.

So frustrating!

I have PCOS and regular cycles as well. In fact I was completely caught off guard when I was diagnosed with it. I did have some weight gain after going off the pill, about 15 lbs. I have the acne, too, but that's about it. My dr. put me on 2,000 mg Metformin. I have been on it 8 months. I have dropped the weight, but not gotten pregnant yet. We are supposed to move on to IUI next. Have you been to a specialist?

Not yet, but I might soon. I'm hoping to have luck with Plexus because a lot of women have. I still have some weight to lose too, to be at what I was when I got pregnant with my son. So frustrating!

I used to be on 500mg of metformin but it made me so sick!

I just stumbled across this...almost a year ago and still nothing. Plexus didn't work for me. :( I have lost about ten pounds this year, but still no luck. Still having regular periods! I might try metformin again. So frustrating!!
