Well I never really got my really got my period. I would only have like 4 or five a year. They only time they were reg was when I was on bc pill. I started the met July 23rd 2004 and soon got period like two weeks later in August.Here my scheldule after continuing taking it Sept i bled for two days and got my period in Oct, Dec, Jan, Feb and now I am waiting on March period. Doctor said I was ovulating but did not do any tests but getting my period that many times is very good for me. At first I tried to lay off sugar and carbs, but to this day I still eat thenm but don't go overboard. Over all I lost 10 pounds. 150 to 140. and still keeping it off. Hope this helps. Oh and I am on 1000mg daily.

Mine is doing the opposite! And I am not even up to 3 pills per day. 3 times in the last 40 day - pretty close to regular periods for me.

I have just started taking metformin after 2 years of no periods. Am a bit scared about it. When can I expect my first period. And does it really help to lose weight?
