How many of us with PCOS?

Jill - July 14

I have had PCOS for 2 years. We have been ttc for 9 months, with no luck so far. We tried Clomid one month, with no luck. My husband and I have agreed to not try anything more aggressive for a while, if it comes down to that. I just thought we needed a thread for all the women on here with Polycystic ovaries, since there seems to be quite a few. We can share our stories and offer our encouragement. Good luck to all.

I have pcos and my ob/gyn put me on Metformin 2000 mg a day. I now have regular cycles and feel so much better. No more painful and heavy periods . Plus no more long periods and no more waiting 2 and 3 or 6 months for my cycle to show up. And I feel so much better . I started clomid this month and now waiting to O in the next 5-9 days . I use the clear plan monitor to chart my ovulation.
Best Wishes

I was just diagnosed with PCOS and my doctor put me on met. I am little, about 5 foot 115 pounds and I don't know if that makes a difference but I cannot take more than 1000mg a day or it just kills me. It makes me so sick like I can't even get out of bed sick. So I just keep taking the 1000mg and no more. I was wondering if the met doesn't work unless you are at least taking 1500mg worth. I have heard women can't get pregnant until they are on a high does. I really don't want my dose to raise any more. Let me know if anyone has gotten pregant on just 1000mg a day.
