Ok, here's something that no one here has spoken about. I am trying alternative methods to TTC. I have PCOS and have been taking metf for about 2 1/2 yrs or so. I have TTC on this alone. I have had no success. The metf regulated my visits from AF. but no pregnancy. So I went to Tecate & got a fertility massage and drank some herbal tea that tasted the worst. I stopped taking metf about 2wks ago when I started the herbal treatment. I haven't had a complete cycle yet since then. AF is now 1 1/2 wks late. Has anyone out there been on metf and stopped taking it? If so how long did it take for your AF to stop visiting regularly?

i'm really bad about taking mine. sometimes i do sometimes for a month i won't. i can always tell i don't have an af that month.
Thanks for the reply. But question did you ever stop like a week before AF was due and then missed it. I'm telling you I can't handle the wait thing it drives me crazy. Right now I'm crying and I think it's all the stress. I just want AF to come if I'm not so I can at least be relieved from this guessing. I started back on the pills again. We will see I can't handle anymore disappointments and so I still haven't take a PT which it's too soon anyway. Does anyone know if metf can cause a miscarriage? :confused:
i have stoped a week before af and didn't get it. but i never know when to expect it only time i was regular was when i was on bc pill. one time i took met. for three months not missing or quiting i was regular when-in a couple of days. but got af on my own this month just late. so i started it again on day 1 of cycle.
have you thought about moving on to clomid?
Well, again I am so grateful to you for your responses. Last time I posted and go zero response. Yes, I have thought about using clomid and did lots of research on it. But with the possible side effects I decided to try a couple of other things first. Getting the massages first w/o metf then with metf since AF never came I started back on the pills according to what I read if I am preg it wont hurt. I just stopped drinking the herbal tea He gave me. How long after restarting metf did AF come?
Well, my story is not so short and sweet but i'll try. I had to self diagnose my PCOS. My doctors kept insisting that I stay on BC. I couldn't stand it because on BC my PMS was the worst and I was very moody. And how can I get preg on BC. Also, I attempted suicide during one of my really bad episodes of PMS and I knew I had to do something. I knew it was my PMS because I started the following morning. When I told my doctor she wanted to put me on more meds. I started researching irregular periods & periods that never end. The more I found out the more I was convince that I knew what was wrong with me. I spoke to my doctor and she apparently had never heard of or never took it seriously. I finally had to take her a HUGE folder full of research and she prescriped metf as per the papers I took her. I felt so different on metf finally normal and my periods regulated. I am very careful about taking metf. I never wanted to go back on BC. It's really hard to get preg when you're constantly messing with your cycle. Anyway about a 1 1/2 - 2yrs ago I started metf but still no preg. So now I'm trying alternative methods. I've been asking alot of people and have now found out 3 friends have done this and where successful and conceiving only 2 though Carried To Term. My friend that mc also suffers w/PCOS. I'm on my way to talk to her to try to get more info from her now. I have clomid set as my final attempt. I told myself that if I don't conceive by my 35th birthday that I would give up. I am now 34yrs old so I decided to go into this year fighting with everything I've got. there you go me in a nut shell.
