1) They are safe drugs.

2) But they are not helpful in treating the PCOS.

I am having some strange pains in my pelvic area. (I am female.) The pain is not consistent, I have gone months without it and then other times it happens several times a day. Most of the time it just feels like pressure in my perineum, as if something hard is poking me, but nothing ever is. Sometimes this pain upgrades to a sharp stab. It usually happens when sitting, but it can happen when standing too. I find it is worse than I am menstruating. I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome. Does this have anything to do with that?

Hi, I am 26 days into a 42 day cycle. My husband and I are trying to conceive. I took Clomid days 2-7 of my period as I was prescribed. I had some tinge of blood on the toilet paper today it was just a little line about a half in inch to an inch long. I have been diagnosed with PCOS in the past. I am overweight (230) and I am 5 ft 7 1/2in tall. Could this tinge be because I am about to ovulate or is it implantation blood?

Questions about PCOS! A little backstory first... I was diagnosed with PCOS as 17 (Now 23) Got pregnant with my daughter at 19, my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant again for over 2 years with one miscarriage a few months ago on dec 30. I have been on Metformin for about a year and a half and I m currently up to 2000mg. I got my first period on feb 13th and it was pretty normal. No period since. I started spotting very light on april 19th and just assumed I was getting a period. Nope! 2 full weeks of mostly brown spotting with a few drops of red. I ve been cramping and having breast tenderness on and off for about a month. Mood swings, fatigue, etc...I have an appt with my doc in a week (its damn near impossible to get an appt there if you arent pregnant!) And I came down with flu like symptoms this past weekend that only lasted a day, which happened both times before I found out I was expecting (crazy, I know) I m trying to stay away from the preg tests because every negative pushes the knife in deeper, but I took one today and no surprise it was negative. Any insight?
