Default Surprise TOM!

So the metformin, diet & exercise must be working because this morning surprise TOM.

I haven't had it in almost a year. So yeah surprise.

I have been cramping like **** the last few days but sometimes I do that. But this morning omg I was going to die. It is always very painful when I do. I took a midol and it seemed to help.

Totally caught me off guard was not prepared product wise lol I went to the store and stocked up buying a bunch of different stuff lol. Then in line checking out a little boy in front of me asked why I was buying diapers, do I have a kid? lmao I didn't know what to say. I just laughed, it was too cute. His mom almost died of embarrassment though!

Anyways I was just kindof excited that things may be working, even though I am in pain and this is so not fun I am happy about it. And wanted to share it with my PCOS sisters who would understand!

YAY!

We, who have PCOS, have to remember weight loss and exercise isn't only about losing weight, but getting healthier! Congrats on the healthy habits, the weight loss AND the period!

Congratulations!! All of your hard work is paying off! I'm so happy for you as I know that feeling. I almost started to sob when I got my very first positive opk test a few weeks ago.

I actually just started metformin today for the first time. I'm hopeful it's going to help my cycles.

Congrats, Moonkissed! I'm interested to learn if you have begun to experience a regularly timed TOM now? I also wonder if you find each one as painful.

After decades of strange cycles, I have learned that with the PCOS it wasn't just going for long periods without TOM - every once in a while it would be extremely painful and i would feel bloaty and awful. More often than not if TOM happened, it was very mild in the pain/bloating/hormone department.

For me, this is how I know which cycle I had actually ovulated. Not only do I go without TOM for extended periods, but even if TOM happens, if it is mild then I know I haven't ovulated, if it is painful and very heavy, i did ovulate.

I am curious if this is also something others have found.
