Trying metformin not working, next step clomiphene ? Please help feeling lost

Hi there,
Unlike most pcos ladies I have the opposite problem.continuous bleeding.
I have tried pretty much everything including vitex and have recently been put on metformin . I'm due to get blood test tomorrow to check if I'm ovulating,but I'm certain I'm not.
The constant bleeding also interferes with intercourse and causes me to have no energy and migraines.
The stress of the side effects including horrible acne and not knowing if I can ovulate is consuming my life. I am currently studying and it's making life impossible.
To make matters harder a close friend and my sister have announced they are pregnant. I know I should be happy for them,but I felt heart broken.
I feel like I'm letting my partner down.
I am praying that my GP will put me on clomiphene but have read its supposed to get monitored.
Any advice,thoughts or anyone in a similar position would be of so much help
Thank you in advance

Hi, have you tried to consult an OB-gyne? I think it is best for you to have a medical check up for you to know what's going on with your body. Let me also share here with you a site I've been using to track my ovulation period and I hope it could also help you.http://www.ovulation-predictor.org/...
