Ok...the glucophage helped me with regulating my period so i hope it helps you too...i took staminogro along with the glucophage but that helped with my fertility as well...i really hope you find a good gynae that will help u...my gynae has been so important to my pcos since i lost my baby, and he is anyi operations, he tries all other methods 1st and ops are as a last resort....hope you find that as well

I am more looking into to regulate my period and lessen pcos symptoms right now than get pregnant

@sumayyak i totally understand i cant even remember what pill i was on, but i get a bad reaction to the pill now so i refused to go back on it, and the gynaes dont ever explain the true after effects of the pill which makes me so cross,i know what u mean about the gp...my dads bro is my gp so its extremely awkward to talk to him but i would rather do that because he will do whats best for me....has the glucophaged regulated your cycle? If you dont mond me asking, are you trying to regulate your period only or are you trying to concieve?

When I was 21 a gynaecologist put me on Yaz to treat PCOS and it made it much, much worse. I gained 20 kg and developed endometriosis
. The worst part is they NEVER acknowledge that it was either a misdiagnosis or a hormone related issue. I was bullied and shamed into thinking I caused my weight gain and pcos issues. I am also on glugophage now and it has helped to bring about my period and regulated my cycle a bit. Also was prescribed by my GP. I sometimes feel that GPs care a lot more than so called specialists. Have any of you ladies been on spironolactone?

I agree with bea sumayyak

Most gynaes are just out to make money, i have had a horibble experience with a female gynae at that, she just wanted me to go for a laproscope, she insisted it was the only way to help with my pcos and fto fall pregnant....thank goodness i have a gp whom i trust and he put me on glucophage and staminogro, from my experience with pcos it causes the body to have an excess of insulin, the glucophage helps. By the time i fell pregnant there was a huge difference in my pcos, it didnt leave but it wasnt as bad as previously, my advice is find a doctor that specialises in pcos...i was actually diagnosed with pcos in durban by a gynae in life westville hospital, its 9 years ago thou so i dont remember the docs name...he was a white man but he was really an awesome explained everything to me, hope you find a doctor to help u sumayyak :thumbup:

Hi Sumayak, I just have one piece of advice - please don't let a normal gynae operate on you or even treat you - ever. Get to a PCOS/endo centre in your area and let the specialists handle your condition. I don't have PCOS but I have severe stage 4 endo and I've also learned my lesson with a "normal gynae". Most of these centres are based at fertility clinics, but your medical aid should pay for treatment (if it's not fertility treatment).

ME: 40 - stage 4 endo, left tube removed
DH: 42

4x laparoscopies
5x hysteroscopies
4x IUI - BFN
12x IVF/ICSI/PICSI - BFN
Planning our next step: donor eggs, adoption or living happily ever after with an only child

May 2016: Lucky nr 13 IVF (own eggs) - BFP! First beta 253, second beta 1100.
First and second ultrasound: one perfect little heartbeat.
10 week scan: identical twins in one sac!!

I am based in Durban. Last gynaecologist I have been to was Dr Abdul Hazmat based in Umhlanga Medical Hospital.
Awful doctor with a condescending manner. Made sure to squeeze money out of me for unnecessary blood tests even though I'm a student. And he prescribed antihistamine for pcos! He also tried to bully me into undergoing surgery that I didn't need. Awful and expensive experience and will NOT recommend or go back. I am still looking for a good durban based gynaecologist
