I have been struggling with irregular cycles ever since I first began having them at the age of 12.. Sometimes they are 3 months apart, sometimes 2 weeks apart... When I was 20 I found out I was pregnant at 24 weeks along.. After all, how was I to know to expect a pregnancy when I occasionally didn't menstruate for a year at a time? I got on BC for the first year after my daughter was born, but have now been off for a total of 5 years and have not managed to get pregnant (not for lack of trying). My doctor has not diagnosed me with PCOS but said that "all signs point in that direction." She put me back on BC for 2 months and then told us to start trying again because the first month off will be a very fertile month.. She has stated that if I am not pregnant by the end of the summer she would like to put me on metformin and see if that helps.. My question is: Is this the way most doctors handle this? Or are there other things that I can do to help my chances of getting pregnant?... I am feeling that this is my last chance, my daughter is nearing 7 and I just don't want my kids much further apart.. Any words of wisdom or encouragement would be most welcomed!
