    truebeliever- good luck with your new specialist. I hope you find the one you’re after this time around. Your story is a bit of a shocker, the bed side manner of some practitioners is ridiculous

    Hi everyone I was diagnosed over a year ago with PCOS and only got told a few months ago that I had it. My periods have been really irregular and I have been told by my doctor to get another ultrasound (which I am having on Tuesday) and he has said that I will probably be put on Metformin when I go to get the results.

    Is there any bad side effects from it?

    Hey how was green bean, Kim?

    As for the met, I have been on it for nearly a month now and I experienced some mild nausea during the first week but since then I've been fine. I've read on other posts though that some women experience really bad nausea, particularly when they take it at breakfast time (I've been taking it with breakfast and dinner and I'm fine). It also depends on the dosage as well. I'm on a 500mg tablet twice a day with food.

    Anyway good luck with the ultrasound and let us know how you go with metformin.

    Hey again ladies


    Have had a rough week, thought I was pregnant, did a few tests which were negative.. Then went thru a week of blood spotting, my period turned up heavy and had clots..
    Disapointing as I want number 3. I dont thini its ever going to happen for me. Need to find a Dr that understands and does not tell me nothing is wrong.

    I need to lose so much weight and dont know how.. I have under active thyroid and now this and I crave the wrong foods...

    Sorry to winge...

    beaniebabez hunny. It isnt an easy ride this PCOS stuff, its so hard to shift the weight. I originally lost my weight to fall preggy with DS with the help of an endo who put me on a regime of medications and food that I actually loved!! I was on duromine for weight loss (I was never hungry) mobic for joint pain as I started to exercise and an antidepressant that hits the over eating part of your head, and it made me feel more human too!!! I lost 45kg in 10 months, he was also so proactive and supportive. I now have a lapband as I put on a pile more weight with the implanon!! and eventually hit 208kg aghhhh Ive lost nearly 60ish now and I have a great FS!! good luck hunny xoxooxox

    familyplanner961 hunny xoxoxox

    Kimnus hunny I started on met in Nov...I ovulated immediately but ended in early m/c 2 months in a row. I was quite queasy the first 2 weeks BUT the weight has been falling of me since starting it!! so thats a great side effect!!! wishing you all the luck in the world hunny xoxoxox

    truebeliever ohhhh I saw lots of those specialists when first diagnosed assholes!!!!! how was your new one hun!!!

    c2p08 it is rare hunny but you can have a spontaneous ovulation and not even realise it. I did with both my bubs I was told I was not ovulating well ummmmmm yeah I must a been!!!!!!

    Thanks everyone for the advice on Metformin. I am loving that it helps you lose weight as I would love to lose about 15-20kgs (currently have a slightly elevated BMI) so it would be great if I could lose some weight.

    I have my appointment on Thursday where I will get the results of my recent ultrasound

    Default pcos and some good advice I got

    Hello there

    I have always had VERY irregular periods, but never any of the other symptoms of pcos, so the pill always helped me out.

    Until I started TTC. My DS is now 2, and it took 4 months off the pill with NO period (just lots of rompy pompy) to conceive. I went to have an internal ultrasound to confirm pcos when I found out I was 6 weeks preg with him. The sonographer indicated there were some cysts, but not to worry too much because I was preg!

    I started ttc bub no 2 about a year ago - was having a cycle every 2-3 months, and lots of sexy time, but to no avail. Went to have further ultrasounds and have 20-something cysts on one ovary, 18 on the other. Went to my GP who wrote referral for fertility clinic - but suggested that without getting out of hand, if I cut my calories in a quite big way it might help. Now im not overweight, im healthy weight, but i though, what the heck, give it a shot.

    2 weeks after i cut calories to 1000 a day, and started running 5kms a few times a week, but little ovaries let an eggy escape. and YAY!

    Its like a miracle! im 12 weeks 5 days now And imagine my DS - preg without evening having a period. PCOS is so weird. I just say give everything a shot with it

    I had to send my liver into ketosis for lapband surgery, in other words to shrink it so I was on a high protein diet. I couldnt do shakes they went straight through me and at work I couldnt leave clients!!

    I suffered the first 5 days with no carbs or extremely low carbs. I lived on low fat cheese and ham, a little kabana, yoghurts, I made lettuce as my bread with chicken n mayo fillings, I ate a huge amount of vegies at night and meat and no potato but it gave my body a kick start....after 5 days the headaches went away, I had sooooooooooooooo much energy and I felt amazing!!! In the 2 weks I had to do it I lost 9kg. You can't do it permanently but I added in a small potato, mountain or pita bread, a high protein cereal..I love porridge in winter!! but it took that first 5 days of determination to get rid of the cravings....I ate constantly I nibbled on cheese n meats n lettuce n carrots and anything else high protein I could find so to start I wasnt hungry but was getting rid of the carb cravings. The lapband is good, it doesnt like carbs at all but liquid calories go straight through so you still need to be careful but I was 140kg over weight!! good luck ladies!!!
