Trying to conceive

Me and my partner have been trying to conceive for 4 months now. I'm 25 next week so still fairly young.
I was diagnosed with PCOS probably about 7 years ago now. My periods were haywire and heavy. Then they went to every 2 weeks lasting for 2 weeks. I got the depo provera injection 2 years ago and this made me bleed for 5 months straight.
Gynaecologist prescribed me norethisterone. To take for 3 weeks then a weeks break and start again. He then discharged me and I continued the tablets for 2 years.
When me and my partner decided to start trying I was still on norethisterone. 2 months after I visited my GP and was told to stop the tablets if I was going to try for a baby. Then she prescribed me metformin. Which I have been taking for 2 months now.
Basically since stopping the norethisterone I have bled continuously. It has been hell. When it looks like it's going to stop the next day it starts again even heavier. I went to the GP today and told her how I have been feeling. Depressed with no hope of conceiving. She advised me to maybe start norethisterone again. I hate bleeding and going through 8 night time sanitary towels a day so thought it might be best as it's my birthday next week and I am going away the week after and don't want to be dealing with changing my pads all the time.
I feel like there is no hope. I feel disappointed in myself for starting up the norethisterone again because I went without it for 2 months and feel like I am back to square one. I can't stop crying. When will it be my turn to have a little miracle in my arms? It's all I have ever wanted since I was 18. I am the oldest in the family to have a child.
My GP said I can't get pregnant on norethisterone but have 'googled' it and some people have so I don't know what to think.
Is there anything I can take along with norethisterone that would help?
Or has all the bleeding just wasted my eggs away and now I'm infertile?
There's so much going through my mind and just wish someone could give me some better advice than the doctors are doing!
