Hello and welcome to the team. For me, metformin alone didn't help with weight loss. I also had to change my eating habits and start getting in some exercise. That's where spark people came in and helped me get on the right track. There are many of us here in this group going through similar as you, don't worry though, PCOS is controllable :)
Hi. My name is Andrea. I was diagnosed with PCOS this year after I went to the doctor for gaining 30 pounds and not being able to lose it with diet or exercise. I want to lose weight and get healthy so that I can get this disease under control. I am only 22 years old so I'm not sure if I want kids yet but I do know I want to make that choice, not have PCOS decide that for me. I recently started taking Metformin and have been on it for almost a month but have had no weight loss with it. I am hoping changing my diet and lifestyle will help and the weight will start to come off. I am still new to dealing with PCOS so I am looking to meet women going through the same struggle who may be able to lend support or advice.
