my pcos

Hi my Name is Candi, when i was 11yrs old i started my periods and they were very, very heavy but regular. and i didn't think anything of it.

When i was 18yrs old i would have my periods for a couple months then none what so ever. so my doctor put me on birth control pills

when i was 19yrs they told me i had cysts i never new i did. old when i got married i stopped taking birth control pills and i saw another doctor and they put me on metformin. so i took those for awhile we and they put me back on birth control pills and at the time i did not want kids.

i have been off birth control pills for over a year and off my metformin for over a year too. went back too the doctors told my doctor i was ready to start having kids so i am i am 22 yrs old now on my way to the doctors tomorrow to see what i need to do to start having kids.

A week ago i started dieting and i have lost 20 lbs so far. Working out i have noticed spots and i haven't seen blood from my periods in over a year.

So i was very happy to see maybe when i start losing more weight i will maybe start my periods on my own again.
