Hello ladies, this is my first post here. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 4 years ago and was around the time me and my husband starting TTC- we'd just got married and I'd had a laporoscopy to get rid of some endometriosis legions on my bowel and uterus. Always had irregular periods and was put on metformin to stimulate ovulation after not bleeding for a year. I have time and time again been given bad advice from doctors and this doctor didn't tell me anything about metformin aside from it 'stimulating ovulation'. So when my periods started again I stopped taking it.
After a horrible and painful 4 months of unsuccessfully trying (timed, regimented etc!) I've just been speaking to a family member who is a doc who said I shouldn't have come off metformin and it is used to help women with PCOS to get pregnant.
Why has no one told me this?! After 4 years of seeing docs, gynaecologists and gum nurses I feel like crying if taking the bloody (excuse the choice of word) tablets again may help me conceive?
Any help/ experience or advice greatfully received.
