For the people with pcos, What were ur A1c levels? Do docs prescribe metaformin even if not ttc??? If my doc just prescribes birth control will it help with the weight gain from pcos? I have so many questions, why does my appt have to be so far away???? lol

Metformin actually helps you lose weight if you follow a low carb diet while on it. Now if I only practiced what I preach! Lol. It will mess with your digestive system badly when you start it....but hang in there, it will help!
