Hi all! I'm a newbie to this board and am looking forward to hearing (and sharing) PCOS experiences.

I'm 35 and have been diagnosed with PCOS for about 3 years now. Looking back, the symptoms were there for at least 5 years before my diagnosis. At first, my OB/GYN put me on Yasmin b/c at that time, I hadn't had a period in at least 6 months. She strongly advised I lose weight, which was impossible b/c of my insulin resistance. It was so easy to gain weight, but all I did was maintain when I'd diet and exercise. I'm now married and would like to get pregnant. I'm taking care of the diet and exercise via a personal trainer. During my annual visit last week, my doctor prescribed Metformin and Progesterone. The metformin is to be taken with each meal indefinitely and should help my insulin resistance. The progesterone was to help me get a "fake period." I took progesterone for 5 days (full prescription). That ended about 3 days ago. I was wondering, when should I expect to see my "fake period" start? Should I be concerned that nothing has happened yet? :confused:
