PCOS, Hard to Lose Weight

Hi my name is Georgina. I was told I have polycystic ovary syndrome in 2009.

I'm taking 4 metformin tablets a day, which is 500mg as me and my husband are trying for a baby.

We already have 2 children but I'm finding it really hard to lose the weight. But I will keep trying and I'm glad to know that there are other people out there so I'm not on my own. Good luck to the ones who trying for a child.

Editor's comments: Hi Georgina, thanks for your comments.

There is some good background info on our PCOS and Weight Loss and How to Lose Weight web pages.

If you're taking metformin for a long time, I suggest you take a B-complex nutritional supplement or a multi-vitamin/mineral formula because metformin can create a vitamin B12 deficiency. You definitely do not want to have a vitamin B12 deficiency when you conceive or during your pregnancy.
