I want to get pregnant. I take metformin at 1000mgs daily. It does not work for me. I want to produce a cycle. I was prescribed Tri Lo Sprintec birth control. Can I induce a menstral cycle by taking the placebo pills? If so, usually how long does it take? Thank you :)
The placebo pills don’t have anything in them, so they aren’t going to produce a cycle. You take those during the week of your period so that you don’t forget about taking the pills. I’ve taken fertility medication, and my doc gave me a one week dosage of something that kicked my period on (it was BC but I can’t remember the name). I then followed by starting the fertility medication Fermara. Have you talked to your doc about ovulation? Just because you have a period doesn’t mean you ovulated with PCOS.
