the first few weeks are hard.  you will have digestive issues.  staying near the bathroom and tons of gas x chewables helped me with it.  i'm on my 3rd month of met and now instead of no AF i get it every two weeks.  {yippie, right?}  my OB said it takes at least 3 months for it to really help, but I've heard women who have had O come on it's own after two.  I hope this for you!

 Thank you so much for all the info ladies, it really helps!!! I have the weight I cannot loose, excess hair, no AF, and they are doing the bloodwork I should have the results tuesday. If it looks like it is a possibility they will follow up with an ultrasound.
