My husband and i have been trying for almost 5 years with NO form of birth control without success. I now have not had a period in over a year. My GYN insisted i had insulin resistance for like 2 years, and finally sent me to an endocrinologist to prove herself right. Except she was wrong. He tested me for everything under the sun, and he even put me on metformin for 6 months!! He told me he did not think i was even close to borderline insulin resistance, but that he would give me the metformin, and if i started, maybe i just have super insulin sensitive ovaries, but if i didn't start, that I did not have IR, and he was right. Nada. I went back to my GYN, and you know what she did? She gave me ANOTHER copy of this article about Syndrome X and told me to loose weight and lay off the carbs! My H is a Type1 diabetic, so sugar in my house is like finding treasure! What else can I do to start? And where's a good GYN in Lou., KY?Answer Question

You can have PCOS and not be insulin resistant. I have a hard time getting pregnant and have been trying for almost 2 years this time. I don't get periods unless I take Prometrium or Povera. Progestorone pills aren't "natural" but it's better than not having a period for year. Have you had your thyroid checked? Have you looked into cushing's syndrome? Do you exercise too much?(as in are you a big marathon runner? That can cause issues with cycles) Has your husband been checked for fertility problems? Has the Dr done an ultrasound to look at your ovaries? Have you tried fertility drugs?
How about Vitex or Chaste Berry Extract? That is an herbal supplement that may help get you period. Didn't work for me , but it works for some. So sorry you're going through this. Good luck with everything.

DO NOT get FertilAid. It's NOT clinically proven.
Try Fertility Blend (http://www.fertilityblend.com/) instead. It's CLINICALLY PROVEN and is recommended by both OBGYNs and Fertility specialist.
Take Vitex...you can find LOTS of information on inducing a period with vitex on the internet as well as sucess stories. It's also been very sucessful in women with PCOS.
