Back on the Met
Yep, I'm back on Metformin. That's on purpose and no we're not trying to get pregnant again (yet). My cycles have been messed up since they came back post-partum. It's been driving me bonkers. The other thing driving me bonkers is my appetite. There were days I would just be hungry all day. No matter what I ate I was still hungry. I remember the first time I was on Metformin (when that was the *only* fertility drug I was on) I was so NOT hungry that I could barely eat the required food to actually take the pill. Therefore, taking the drug can not only make my cycles bearable but it will also help my appetite be normal again. Seriously I've been hungry as if I were still pregnant (which I'm not at all), and my weight loss has plateaued. No good...I'm still way higher than a good normal weight for my height. I've been on the Metformin for 3 days and already I've noticed a better appetite--meaning it's normal, and I don't think about food all day long. And right now I'm on the lowest dose, which is 1/3 of what my dose will probably become. I'm happy now. I'm not starving, I'm eating normally, and hopefully I'll finally be able to get down to my happy weight. On top of that I shouldn't have 40+ day cycles anymore! Woooo!
