Dear ladies, I have just joined verity and I would love to hear your thoughts. I am 32 (in a few weeks), with PCOS. I am lucky enough to not suffer too badly from symptoms. I am not overweight and I go running for an hour 3 times a week. I have not had a period for over a year and a half. I took microgynon 30 (combined pill) on and off for 12 years and have not had a bleed since I came off it April last year (2015). I want to have children in the next 5 years or so. The doctor says I should run less? Really?? I drink quite a lot of wine (like a couple of glasses a day or sometimes nothing in the week but more at the weekend) and drink one coffee every morning. Apart from that I eat very healthily and have quit smoking. Does anyone have any tips as to how I can get my period back?? It really concerns me since I want to know I am able to conceive when I want to. Is it really essential to go Tee total and totally caffeine free? I love my wine and morning coffee so SO much and would be quite miserable to have to give up these things up. It would be very hard also because all my friends,family,partner etc like a drink and its very much part of my culture (I was raised in France- Wine=Religion!). Your thoughts would be so much appreciated. Feel so lost and doctors seem to be very black and white about these things saying "when you want to conceive, you just take this drug and you will most likely ovulate". Hmmmm.
Looking forward to hearing back from you,
