Yaz/Metformin

Does anyone here with PCOS take this combo? Just wondering if it helped out with weight control at all.

Thanks

I took both yaz and metformin. I loved them. You will lose weight with the metformin :>!! It might take a few months before you notice (because it has to be in your system and get your glucose levels figured out). I am still on the metformin but not yaz. I liked yaz and had no problems but my doctor pulled me off it after a year. She said yaz has a potential to spike potassium levels. For me this mattered because I have leg cramp issues. So with the information I have posted, specifically ask your doctor about this and if they measured your levels (blood test) they will know.
