My older sister also has PCOS and has been taking Metformin. She says it works and has been helping her with symptoms including losing weight. Any more recommendations? Tips/advice? Other alternatives?
Hey there is a natural form called inositol. Search on google inositol for pcos and there is a good article. I think its by tarryn poulton. If you wanted to try it i buy it in iherb.com
I've been on Metformin for over 10 years. It keeps my cycle regulated, and keeps the insulin resistance in check, but I have digestive issues from taking it. I take probiotics to help that, and it works most of the time.
I was on Metformin for about 8 years, it helped regulate my cycles after a while though I had difficultly with my blood sugar going way too low. I did not have any weight loss and eventually went off and my cycles are still very regular now.
@A myPCOSteam Member i read an article that said it has been shown to help. I have been taking it for 6 weeks so not noticed any difference yet but hoping it will 😀
