PCOS & Endo

aessem - May 3

Hello everyone. I'm so glad I found this website. I first got my period when I was 13, it was terrible. I then went a year with out it and then it was terrible. I continued this yearly cycle till I was 16 and my mother feared I was following in her foot steps of PCOS & endometrosis. I was put on birthcontrol until I was 18 and this helped greatly I always got a monthly cycle and it wasn't that heavy or painful. After I stoped the birth control I got one cycle right away and then never again so I went to my gyno and he insisted I needed the birthcontrol, he never tested me for PCOS. So I went to a endocynologist who ran blood work and confirmed I had PCOS and put me on metformin. I started metformin June of 2005, I had a cycle right away and then not till Nov 2005 then in Feb 2006 (only one day) and then April 2006 for two weeks, during which I went in for lyposcopy to see if I had endometriosis (having extreme pains in left ovary area). Its been confirmed I have both enlarged ovaries and insuline resistance (PCOS) & dirfuse endometriosis. My endo wanted to put me into a false menophase to stop the endo growth but I refused and insisted I would try for pregnancy. We have been trying since April 15 and recently I have been getting headaches, dizzy, nausea, and sensistive to smells. I have wondered if I could be pg but I thought it would be harder. I haven't taken a pg test for the fear of finding out it is neg. I also don't know when I should take on for I don't know if my period will be normal or not this month. Any suggestion would be great.
