Regular period and slim with PCOS

by Stephany
(Philippines)

Hi I'm Stephany, 33, i like to share my story. I had miscarriage when i was 3 months pregnant because I got partial H-Mole (my doc says something blood clots around the fetus). After six months of medication, I was diagnosed with PCOS, 6 years ago.

Yes I have PCOS, but I am slim/slender 5'3" in height, 102 lbs only (47 kls.). I'm taking metformin for 4 years, I've done clomid/clostil, pregnyl injectable and metformin but sad to say i didn't still get preg.

I ate only healthy foods, exercise & multivitamins.

With or without metformin, I have period every single month and my transvi says i always have dominant follicles.

I don't have much side effects of PCOS like hirsutism, fat belly, high blood sugar, acne, but I am dry skin. I'm waiting for my result of my Thyroid, blood got this morning.

Besides PCOS, I have unexplained infertility. Next month I am scheduled to take fertility drugs and take met again. I am very positive that one day God will provide. Going 7 years of marriage, me and my husband we're good and strong relationship even without children and still hoping. I'd read all success stories that sometimes I felt good and hopeful and that one day i will share my success story.
Thank you and wish me luck.

Editor's notes:

1) Dry skin could be due to poor digestion, thyroid dysfunction, lack of property oils in the diet, or other factors. Consider taking fish oil or cod liver oil.

2) I'm glad to hear you taking multi-vitamins. Taking metformin over the long term will significantly increase your need for B-complex vitamins and other nutrients. For example, as we said in our last newsletter, metformin and result in a vitamin B12 deficiency. If you have a B12 deficiency, the development of your unborn baby could be impaired, to say nothing of creating problems with your own health.
