I was always a heavy so I didn't have to deal with weight gain, and all my OB/GYNs told me the reason my periods were so irregular was because I was so overweight. But I was always active as a teenager so I never understood why the weight never came off.
I hate BCP. I like my hormone levels the way they are. Except for causing me to have periods that are made up of only blood clots I don't have PMS (I do get horny like made before and during a period though). But after years of having 3-4 periods a year it is causing some not so good issues, like spotting a lot before and after a period. So it's time I start to regulate it.
The only problem I have with metformin (which I dont' think I have to worry about since I was told I more than likely could not conceive a child with out a lot of hormone therapy) is that is increases you chance of pregnancy. The only reason I will consider going on it right now is to help me loose weight so I might be able to eat a little bit more like a normal person. I do have my self on a very low carb intake diet. I still eat between 1500-1600 calories, but that's mostly made up of only 30-35% carbs.
So I'm working on getting my cycles regular without the use of the pill. I just tried the ring and did not like it at all, so I'm going to see about an IUD, and maybe see what my doctor knows about metformin...though since she has yet to even suggest it to me I'm not sure she knows anything.
Does metformin regulate your period or just help with the insulin resistance??
