My Met. Update

I am now completely ramped up on Metformin. I've completed my first week of three pills per day and three weeks total.

Considering I never had a symptom for any of the other drugs I've taken, the Met is making up for lost time. My tummy is never happy, and it ranges from very mild to a raging gurgling hotbed of angriness. I am dealing with some serious bloat now that I'm up to three pills and I'm late.

Since I am so late in my cycle it gets harder to determine if the 'off' feelings are the meds, or just PMS. My boobs have been crazy sore for about a week, which is pretty normal, but is it worse than usual because of the Met? Things are never 'normal' as any one of you with PCOS undertands, so who knows....

Fingers are still crossed for the late period, or obviously no period at all!

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone!


  1. Hi there! I'm here via Kanis' blog "Babies on my Brain". I just wanted to mention that I was on Metformin for PCOS about 7 years ago and it worked for me. For some reason, the Met does regulate your period, but I remember that for me, it took a little while - maybe as long as 6 months. Good luck! :)

  2. Oh, and I forgot to mention - I had the "angry tummy" as well. It helps to increase your dose slowly, so hopefully they told you that. It does get better though. :)

  3. Hoping for no period at all:)

  4. The Met can definitely regulate your period, but for me, it took until I was on the full dosage for a month. Hopefully AF doesn't show at all!!!

  5. I don't the the Met does anything to cause breast soreness, but the digestion issues? I still have them. Just carry anti-diarrea meds and watch the carbs. Other than that, I am afraid it's something you get used to.
