metformin works for my pcos



I was diagnosed with pcos at 19 ttc 1 1/2 years. no periods on my own i took metformin for about 3 weeks and i got a period i have been taking it on and off and the general result is that when i take it i get a period i did have some of the side effects vomiting etc but it only lasts about a week or 2 until u get used to the drug. i don't know if i will get preg with this alone but know it will help!

Editor's comments: Metformin does help with symptoms of PCOS. However, medical research has shown that a healthier diet plus regular exercise can be as effective as metformin.

Moreover, healthy diet and exercise to do not make you vomit and do not have other "side effects".

Metformin also has a bunch of undesirable side effects that you should be aware of. We recommend that anyone taking metformin should also take a B-complex vitamin to offset some of the side effects.
