yeah I have a prescription for it, but I am not taking it. I think I'm done with my endo, he doesn't listen to me and just forces things on me without hearing me, if that makes sense.
I finally found an ob/gyn in my area that specializes in PCOS cases. I have an appointment with him on the 8th. I am going to try this route first, before a fertility clinic. The endo basically told me, you're getting old, and you're still fat, so you're chances of a baby are diminishing and he gave me a number to a fertility clinic...gee thanks fool.

The same thing happened with me when I was given Metformin. I would wake up in the middle of the night with dangerously low levels. It was so frustrating because my Endo said she had never "heard" of that happening and continued to prescribe it so I stopped on my own.

I've found that a Paleo diet or a low glycemic index diet works best with PCOS and losing weight for me. I also found that I never really need the metformin the prescribed me, it was actually causing my blood sugar to drop so low I was dizzy and have severe night sweating. I read cinnamon is a great natural remedy for insulin levels.

I made the tough decision after being so connected to my birth control, to finally stop taking the pill. The research piled against it and the side effects were beginning to be too much for me. In the mean time I have purchased some Progesterone cream to balance myself as much as possible but I know with things like this - patience is a virtue. I am also slowly introducing a PCOS friendly diet to my routine as well as starting small exercise goals. I hope for the best but PCOS flares at random times so I really do not have any expectations. For those of you who have chosen a medication free/organic(ish) lifestyle, what have your experiences been so far? I'd love to hear from you! Good or Bad!
