TTC Update #5

 I wanted to give a update on our TTC (Trying To Conceive) story. I had lab work done last month and got the results. I was officially diagnosed with PCOS. In the last year, since stopping birth control, I gained 30 pounds, have had horrible acne randomly, and my period decided to run away and never come back again. I have taken provera to try and make it stay, it has other plans.
Today I went and met with my doctor and we discussed fertility treatments and options. I had 2 options, Clomid or Metformin. I am on metformin for now. My levels that were elevated during my lab work was the testosterone and progesterone. This will help my levels. I have also been struggling to lose weight. I work out, I eat healthy but I still gain. My doctor informed me that, pcos, does that. So hopefully this medicine will get my system in line and I can lose weight and get pregnant. I hope everything returns to how it should be. 

I have read so many success stories about metformin. I really hope in a few months time, I will be giving one of those stories as well. Also, if you have PCOS or had it, and took this medicine, let me know what you thought about, how it worked for you. I would love to know!!

Fingers crossed it works!
