  • I have PCOS, too. I took metformin up until I got pregnant and it worked wonders. Just know that the side effects can be a little much to deal with, refined sugars and milk products make them worse for me. I didn't need surgery, never had any cysts, just the insulin and hormone problems. They use the metformin to treat it because of the insulin resistance that PCOS causes, and with treating that ALL of my other symptoms were so much better if not gone. WebMD has some really good info about PCOS and metformin, it helped me know what questions to ask my doc and helped me understand what PCOS had been doing to my body. Feel free to pm me if you have any more questions or if you just need someone to talk to about it.
