My name is Kristen (22) and was diagnosed with PCOS/Insulin Resistance in Aug.2006. I started noticing a lot of weight gain once I started have menses (13 years of age).
I was athletic, always doing some kind of sport or physical activity but couldn't seem to get rid of that mid-section fat.
My husband and I decided we wanted to try and conceive our first child in 2004-2005 with no success. I have never had regular cycles and would only have maybe 1-2 periods a year! Unbelievable.
I went to the doctor and told her my problem and that my hubby and I wanted to conceive our first child and she put me on Metformin aka Glucophage. I started out of 500 mg a day and then eventually increased to 500 mg 3x's a day.
Six months later I conceived my son, Nickolas who is a happy, healthy 9 month old little boy.
If you have PCOS and are overweight don't give up on your dream of having a family. I am currently on the Insulin Resistance diet and have lost 6 lbs in one week!! It helped me and it could help you too!
