I will start from high school. I was always thin and active, I weighed about 125 in junior year.

Senior year I gained weight(still very thin though) all normal periods, and when I was 17 I got on birth control, all normal periods. college came and i gained 30 lbs in one year. I got a leaky nipple. Didnt think anything of it, because I was still on birth control and got my periods.

My sister has PCOS and was diagnosed in high school. I got married in 2009. I got of birth control November 2010 and got my period December, but never again. I went to the doctor my testosterone level was high. I am now on metformin since May 3rd. No period yet. May 16th I started taking 1500 mgs of metformin.

So here I am, hoping and praying that I will get pregnant, my husband and I are trying to do this without fertility drugs. Anyone have any advice on just using metformin and hoping to get pregnant? any success stories?
