what kinds of symptoms do you have? what medications are you on? do you have any other problems because of it?

I am insulin resistant and have had gestational diabetes with each pregnancy. Two pregnancies have been spontaneous (my first and last) and the one in between was the result of injections, trigger shots, Metformin, and an IUI. My only major issues besides the infertility are mood swings and weight gain. When I'm on Metformin I feel much better!

I have it too, sucks! I was on the birth control pills to help control it but I stopped taking them because hubby and I want to try to get pregnant soon. I have my preconception appt next week so hopefully I'll find out more. Also I just recently got a book that seems to be really good. What kinds of problems are you having?

i have basically all the symptoms, but i recently went to an herbalist who said that my body type didnt fit with the cases of PCOS that she's seen. so im not sure who is wrong in this case. i stopped taking birth control recently, and im not taking herbal meds instead.
