Iam Uma i live in India, State Tamilnadu, City Chennai. Iam suffering from multicystic ovaries. I had melmet tablets for 6 months so i had my periods regularly. The doctor told me to stop the tablets since i had my periods. But, After stopping i am again not having my periods. My last menses date is July' 12' 08 and this full month August i did not have my periods.
I will be again consulting another gynacologist tomorrow. I would like to know people from Chennai who have had this problem and later got cured and also which gynacologist they have been.
Here in the USA, Melmet is called Metformin. The problem you are describing is what we call PCOS or "Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome". I have not suffered with it myself, but know it can cause fertility problems among other things. Here is a link that has a good explanation of PCOS and course of treament. I hope this helps you.
