Well after going through many hoops, dealing with ignorant doctors and waiting for eons for an appointment, I finally got in to see an endocrinologist about my PCOS. Naturally he gave me Metformin as a medication for treatment. I was so happy about this I started taking it the same day of my appointment.
Here's my issue: I was already on my period when I saw the doctor. I had been on it off and on for about a week and a half (you know how us PCOS'ers have periods for more than the norm sometimes). Well, since taking the Metformin my period HASN'T STOPPED!
Does this normally happen with a good amount of women that are on Metformin for PCOS? I'm worried because I don't want to stop the medication, I want to give it a chance. The doc is giving it 3 months to see how it's affecting me. I can understand this happening if my Metformin is just balancing my hormones, but I wanted to see if this happened to any one of you, how long did it take for the constant bleeding to stop? Did it take weeks, MONTHS?!
I know there's already been a similar question on this topic, but I'm just really worried that I'll bleed forever! Please help.
