What Type Of Medicines Are Out There For PCOS?

What Type Of Medicines Are Out There For PCOS?

I’m looking for different ways to help my PCOS.
I’ve taken metformin in the past with no luck. Im currently trying out inositol. I’m having issues with weight gain and infertility. I’ve tried metformin paired with several rounds of clomid. Still no luck. I’m trying to maintain healthy eating with exercise along with trying out metformin again. Still no luck.

I was just unofficially diagnosed 2 weeks ago when I saw my OBGYN for a fertility workup since my husband and I have been married for almost 2 years and have not been able to get pregnant yet. I had labs drawn that indicated I have PCOS. My OBGYN prescribed me femara. I haven’t taken it yet because you take it at the start of your cycle, so I’m not sure how well it will work for me (or if it will work at all), but it could be something to try

you can try Femara. That is what my doctor put me on. She said clomid is not ever mentioned in her office because of the side effects and the percentage of it working. My first round of femara, I ovulated for the first time.
