    Question 23,TTC #1 with PCOS. Just diagnosed :( Advice please??

    Hi guys,
    Just joined up to this forum as I heard you are a really supportive group to talk with about TTC.

    I am 23, been trying to conceive for almost a year and was just diagnosed with PCOS this week. Everything else is normal according to my blood tests, I am waiting to find out how my testosterone levels are next week.

    My periods are regular also,and always have been.

    My doctor also talked about putting me on metforim (I think that's how it is spelt).

    Can any other ladies with PCOS tell me if they had any luck with metforim?
    Or if they concieved with or without medication of any kind?

    Any advice would be great, kind of sad my ovaries aren't working to their fullest.

    Thanks ladies! Babydust to all.xx

    Welcome to the hub.

    I didn't have luck with metformin but that was because I had irregular periods and wasn't ovulating regularly. I had luck on Clomid which helped me ovulate. Metformin helped me lose weight though

    I hope someone can give you some good news stories.
