PCOS>>>>> Hi everyone i'm new to this but i need some help from people who might have the same problems, I'm 19 years old and engaged to the love of my life. I started B/C at the age of 16 and was on it until april of 08 when we decided we were going to start trying to have a baby. I had one period after i quit the B/C and didn't have one for 10 months total, at the 5 month marker i went to the doctor and she told me that my body was trying to get regular again and that it can sometimes take up to 6 months. Well After i paid off those medical bills (10months now) i went back in and was prescribed Provera to start my period, and given a referral to a gyno. When i finally got in he did a pelvic exam and told me that it was a possibility i had PCOS and that i needed to get an internal ultrasound and some blood work and come back in to discuss the results. It was PCOS, he then prescribed me metformin, provera, and chlomid. I took the 50mg of chlomid on day 4-8 of cycle. I didn't do the ovulation predictor kit because i didn't know exactly when to start them. But i did feel pain in my ovaries around day 19 of my cycle. It is now day 40 and there is still no period, which the DR said there would be. The Dr. prescribed me 500 mg of metformin for 2 wks, then 1000 for 2 wks, then 1500 for 2 wks and then on but when i started taking the 1500 mg of metformin i also started to throw up at least everyother day. So i called (a week ago) and they told me to switch back to 1000mg per day, and that i had to wait til i had no period for 35 days total before the could give me more provera. During this whole month i have been having very severe mood swings. 2 days ago i woke up in the middle of the night and was throwing up for the entire night and the day. Then yesterday, and today i have been feeling sick to my stomache but havent thrown up. I am going to call the DR tomorrow. But i need answers sooner than that. I have taken 6 preg test in the duration of the month including a blood preg test on day 18 of cycle because i was being put on antibiotics for an ear infection, Do you think its possible that i could have ovulated later than i thought and i could be preg?? The last test i took was a wk ago and it was neg. please help, any imformation is helpful

I can't help on the other symptoms but I was just told today that clomid is called the 555 drug or drug of 5 or something like that but he said it is 50mg starting on the 5th day for 5 days of your period and you will be fertile on the 5th day after that.
