  • I also have pcos - I have never been on meds..but next month I am going to ask to be.......

    i would think that once you stop taking it - the symptoms would come back? your DR should tell you all about it.

  • I have friends who never stop taking meds. Whether it be teh metformin or on a form of birth control. You need yoru hormones regulated an dmost of all you periods. If you aren't on anything and keep going w/o periods you are at a high risk of developing ovarian cancer.
