Or is just regular diet and exercise better for that? I dont know why but I am really driving myself crazy over all this stuff!! I guess I just dont know what to do, whether to take the med or not, or if im ready to try to get pregnant....and I am really scared of diabetes!
Not sure if it can bring on Pregnancy or not. But I have PCOS, and I take Metformin too. Metformin is supposed to boost your metabolism, it keeps you from not eating so much ( which is something that I have a problem with).
Metformin is a good a drug, it does help you have less cravings on sugar, and like another poster said, it does bring on periods.
Don't worry about Metformin, it will help you.
