I have PCOS and haven't had periods since coming off the pill over a year ago. I was put on metformin recently. I was told to take it on alternate days first to build it up. After ONE tablet I had a "natural" period. Could this be because of the metformin or just a coincidence? I've got the cramps etc with it (and had cramps a few days before taking the first metformin tablet) but didn't have any mood swings (which I used to get when having a periods on the pill). I've spoken to our clinic and they're happy to continue regardless (hubby has low sperm too) but am I getting ahead of myself thinking that I've had a natural period or has metformin done this? Any help would be great. Thankyou xx
