I been browsing forums anonymously for a while but decided to join. I am a 29 year single female who was dx with PCO back in college so since about 1999 or so. my Mom just had carpal tunnel surgery and was watching Montel Williams and called me and said Omg I think you have this PCOS thing. Lol so when I came back home on break I went to see an endocrinologist and he was an old school one so all he did was prescribe me metformin. I refused to take it for a long time due to the side effects. I was sooooo nauseous. So I just left it alone until I said maybe I should look at this again. Went to another one and he did a test to see if my clitoris was bigger and thats it and once again was prescribed metformin and told I needed to lose weight. Well 2004 I had gastric bypass and lost 160 pounds and my symptoms became dormant so 2006 I started grad school and my facial hair was getting out of control so I looked and found a wondering RE at Yale New Haven but even though I was in Mass for grad school I took the hour trip to CT to see her. I was prescribed metformin and Yas/Yasmin. I stopped both because metformin I needed to be near bathroom at all times and Yas/Yasmin too many side effects well fast forward to today. I decided a few months ago I wanted a baby because I am established now. I decided to go sperm donor route because I a not in committed relationship and don’t want to be entangled in anything messy. Well I took all the neccessary tests and everything came back fine. I was taking aldactone (sp) because I have a severe bloating problem so I told my doc I would like to start in Nov so I can make sure it is out of system. Well for the past 2 months I have ovulated on my own. First I thought it was period cramps but my friend told me to take a test and what do you know it was positive. Tried doing the charting but my temp fluctuated everyday so it was unreliable. Well November cycle I will start taking clomid, then have a US, then if follicles have grown enough do an injection of Ovidrel and should be good to go. Sorry for posting so long. I am excited but also nervous. So thanks all for all the information I have obtained from your posts. Ohh I am also back on Metformin for past about 6 momths but extended release and ever since my gastric bypass, my period has been normal and like clockwork.
