Up until April of 2006 my periods were normal. I had on every month, not always when I expected them, but I had them. They were light and hassle-free. Then I got pregnant with my son (while on birth control I might add). After he was born I had a period once every three months for the first year. When he turned 1 I finally saw a doctor and he told me I had PCOS. It made sense to me since I had all the symptoms except irregular periods before I got pregnant. He prescribed Metformin and I went on my merry way. It worked. I had periods. But it made me incredibly sick. So when I went back on birth control I stopped taking it. Now I want to have a baby. I stopped the birth control a few months ago. The problems is I'm not getting periods anymore. I know I need to take the Metformin but it makes me so sick I can't take care of my 2 1/2 year old. I'm getting discouraged. Going to the doctor to get clomid is not an option and I worry I'll never get pregnant on my own. Does anyone have an encouraging story?
