Waiting for my blessing

by Brandi
(Indiana )

I was diagnosed with PCOS earlier this year in 2009. I went to a doctor and started taking progesterone and glucophage to help regulate my periods after I had stopped taking BC.

After taking it for nearly 3 months I finally had a period, but did not ovulate.

I decided to stop taking everything because the glucophage was making me have problems and just decided to see what happened.

Well since then I have not had a period, and that's been about 8 months.

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year now and no luck so far.

My new insurance will not let me receive treatment for my "pre existing medical condition" for another 5 months, so until then I plan to lose weight by exercising and eating a well balanced diet (low carb).

I am going to try and do things naturally for this next 5 months and see what happens!

Thanks for all of the stories and encouragement on here I hope to post good news soon on here!

Editor's comments: Drugs are powerful but they all have side effects. PCOS is not cured by metformin (Glucophage), birth control pills or any other pharmaceutical.

We always recommend a comprehensive approach that includes other things in addition to drugs. Click here for ten tips to help control PCOS and infertility.

If taking progesterone, consider taking natural progesterone rather than a synthetic one. Synthetic progesterone has side effects; natural progesterone does not.
