some people who go on metformin, have a side effect of weight loss but its a side effect of the drug, not what the drug is suppose to do for you (its an insulin sensitizing drug).

There is no drug on the market for PCOS that helps with weight loss - the metformin can help with blood glocose levels, but thats about all it can do you might louse on it, but keeping it off if you need to come off of it or once your body gets use to it is another matter

best solution is working with a dietition and finding a deal that works best for you

some find reduced carbs works best, others higher carb intake - its what you will find will work for you

some of us even have luck getting the weight off once we are on a form of BC (i lost over 100 pounds while on depo provera, and have kept it all off - lost 10 pounds in a month while on lupron and have kept it off) that helps to regulate our homone levels (there is a theory that once your hormones are balanced that weight loss will happen - its a theory that appered to work for me, since once they went back out of balance i've not been able to budge up or down).

Hello, I was just diagnosed with PCOS but have not yet received medication. I was wondering when I do get the medication, if this will help me to lose any weight? I try and try and try to lose these extra 10-15 pounds but I won't budge! I never cheat on a diet ever. Please let me know what you take and if it helps with the weight loss.
