I'm so incredibly excited that I'm able to post a success story here, as it was all of your success stories that gave me the courage to begin taking Metformin. I began taking Metformin this past August, and followed the gradual dosage increases for about 1 month. I took 500 mg, then 1000, then 1500, and finally made it up to 2000 mg. I was fine until I hit the 2000 mark, and then experienced tremendous nausea and diarrhea. It was so bad, and I was so sure it wasn't working for me, that I decided to stop taking it for a few days. But for some reason, I decided to get back on track, so I went back to the 1500 mg dose for a week, and then upped to 2000 with few s/e. Well, it had been 60+ days since my last period, I had no change in my facial hair status, and nothing seemed to be changing. I had actually gained 1 pound! I was so disheartened, and I was certain that Metformin just wasn't working for me. I convinced myself I had Crohn's disease or pituitary problems or some other ailment that was causing my problems. My periods were always irregular, but they would usually come before 60 days. Well one day, I'm like, what the heck, let me just take a pregnancy test. I know there's no chance I'm pregnant, but I'll take this test just to prove it to myself. Well, suffice it to say, the test came back positive. I was in shock. I couldn't believe it at all. I took another test. Positive. I went to the store and bought two more. Both positive. I was in shock. I immediately called the doctor and was miraculously able to schedule an appointment for the next day. In the meantime, I went on the internet and tried to determine if there were ways to get false positive tests, and I saw that certain ovarian cysts caused false positives. I convinced myself that this must be the case (especially since I had been feeling these weird menstrual-like cramps every so often). So I went to the doctor and I told her that I think I have an ovarian cyst that led to a positive pregnancy test. She looked at me like I was a little crazy, and told me that, no, I was definitely pregnant. I didn't believe her -- I told her that we'd have to wait until the ultrasound. She then took me into the ultrasound room, gave me an ultrasound and showed me my beautiful little 6-week-old bean baby. She also let me listen to the heartbeat. I couldn't believe it. I was STUNNED. I'm still stunned. After a lifetime of dealing with irregular periods and other PCOS symptoms, I was convinced I would never have a success story, but I do now and I can't believe it. I guess all I can say is that Metformin works, and I'm so grateful to you all and all of your success stories for convincing me to go on. I know this is long, but I guess you all can tell I'm just a little excited.
