PCOS is a MISERABLE condition with bizarre menstural cycles and a ton of other symptoms that don’t always actually show!

It can also make it really hard to conceive, though some people get lucky!

I have PCOS and started Metformin this week.  I have really irregular periods, and was on BC for years to control them.  I have also found some control with extreme diet and exercise changes.  If I’m exercising on a very regular basis, I find my periods are much more consitant and I feel better.

Metformin is a good drug, you just have to watch out for stomach troubles, and it is highly suggested that you take a B12 vitiamen supplement with it (If you are TTC, all suggested you take a pre-nattle multi vitimine, just to have it in your system)   Stomach troubles (pain, diahrea, vomitiing) are signs of the worst side effect of the medication.  I’m currently having some heartburn with mine, which I’m watching.

I will say, in the short time I have been taking Metformin, I am feeling more energetic, espeically an hour right after I take it.  It might be because it causes your body to use insilin better.  Insulin intolerance is thought to be the biggest cause of PCOS. 

If you have any direct questions, I am not in medicine, but I did a lot of research on PCOS after my diagnosis, and Metformin before I decided to go on it.
