    Hi I need help in designing a circuit that can make a simple 9V DC motor run forwards and backwords. I'm operating this motor from 5V microcontroller outputs and I need to be able to adjust it's speed as well as direction.

    I've thought of using a h-bridge but I simply cannot find one where I live. Can anyone offer an alternative?

    Please try to stick to layman terms, i'm still pretty much of a noob when it comes to electronics thanks.
