Oh Happy Day.........It's Here!

If you would have told me 10 years ago I'd be thrilled to get my period- I would have never believed you.  I am not sure if it's the combination of the Metformin  & DCI Chiral Balance combo..... or one of the two, but yesterday I finally had a period on my own without the assist of a Provera prescription.  

Things are starting to look up, after a hard week.  

I had called the Dr. on Monday this week and asked her to up my Metformin prescription - since I am only on 1000mg a day, and I had heard that 1500mg was the "golden dose" for PCOS gals.  My Dr. said that she didn't feel comfortable doing that, and to "stick it out, or call the OBGYN if I just didn't want to wait" for a prescription for Clomid.  My Dr. said to be patient (not a strong trait of mine) - and that I should keep in mind that "there is the possibility Metformin may just not work".  Until that very moment, I had never thought that taking the metformin wouldn't work for me.  Of course then after we spoke I stressed all week that I may be taking Metformin which makes me feel sick and miserable all the time for nothing!  

Well I am so glad that is seems like everything is starting to work.  I feel totally re-leaved, actually!  This week I have been walking home from work, I walked on the treadmill one night, and I have been making smarter food choices.  I'm glad that I finally see some improvement in my situation - I needed this HUGE boost.  

So, I think now I may be actually able to start tracking out my cycles.  Here is hoping for the best!
This is so funny.  


  1. I know exactly how you're feeling! My period has shown up maybe 3 times in the last 10 months and I'm always ridiculously happy when it does! lol! Best of luck!
