    Hey lana,

    Don't worry about missing a few pills. I missed a few myself. I'm a terrible pill taker. hehe. I told DH at least he doesn't have to worry about me becoming addicted to anything!

    It took me about 6 weeks to get a bleed on met. So hopefully yours will show soon!

    That sounds good Lana... what Ivana said, maybe you'll get AF soon...

    I just noticed that you are in TNQ... where abouts? I love it up there, we wnet to Port Douglas for our Honeymoon, and went back to Cairns within 6 months. We will go back next year again too!

    I am doing well, went to specialist appt last friday, and she is going to look into my ovulation a bit more if we dont fall in this cycle. I have to have a BT a week after O this time, and if we miss the egg, DH will get a SA and I will have an u/s 2 weeks after AF... we will see if my follicles are long enough, if not, we will look at clomid.

    So getting there... our Angel's EDD is not too far away (7th Dec) so not ooking forward to that!

    BTW... love your avatar!

    Hey
    Im finally Back from holidays!!! \/ lots of shopping i let my partner buy a new boat , So i was in the good books to spend lol

    Ivana im so glad im not the only hopeless pill taker lol as of tomorrow im officially back on it ! so hopefully my AF will come this month because i feel SOOOO Bloated Grrr :-({|= .

    Mel , Cairns is really nice we will eventually move there next year i really like the way its set out , i was born and bred on the gold coast and cant stand it now , It's too touristy!! and hectic... i live in the Torres straits For RObs work and i live on an island called badu . I dont know if u seen on the news about the immagration boat that went missing last week and they still haven't been found , or last year when another boat sank and the 3 kids swam to an island for a few days until they were found safe .
    (which is the reason why i let rob buy a Huge boat !)

    and thanks for the comments on my avatar, It's my own i asked her too upload it , and it turned out great !

    Hi, I have PCOS and was on metformin for over a year but it was to control the hormone levels. I was told i would never fall pregnant because my PCOS was so advanced i have had it since i was 11 and i got my first period at 9 and have been in and out of hospitals for years with it. I was only diagnosed february last year by my GP who is brilliant. He told me there was a very slim chance of falling pregnant and he put me on folic acid to reduce the side effects of the metformin. I never actually ever had a `normal` cycle it was not uncommon at all for me to skip 2,3 or 4 periods or to bleed heavily and constantly for up to 10 weeks straight but the metformin and the folic acid quite clearly worked a charm and im now 16 weeks pregnant. It wasnt planned or thought possible but it did happen so there is hope regardless of severity of the disorder.
    Have a great day
    Mel
