I'm 25years old and I found out I had PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) at age 14. I don't have a period unless I take birth control pills, if I stop the birth control can I still get pergnant without a period?

My doctor put me on Metformin and told me to watch my weight, I stoped the birth control pills for a month just to see if i'd get a period but i didn't. I want to be a mommy so bad is there any hope for me?

I already have enough problems in my life I don't need this. Crying or Very sad

If your not getting your period then no you will not be able to get pregnant. However there are medications such as provera that will induce your period, which in turn means you will be ovulating

Metformin is a fantastic drug for pregnancy.

I too have PCOS and thanks to Metformin I gave birth to my beautiful son last March. Since then, I went off metformin and had 3 miscarriages.

I am again on Metformin and pregnant again - everything so far is looking good.

There is hope - stick with your metformin. That's your ticket....it can take about 6 months to work enough on your hormones to induce regular ovulation.
