Metformin for PCOS

I need to know there is light at the end of the tunnel...
I have been told I have PCOS because I do not get a period without being on birth control. My husband and I decided we want to try to have children next year so I decided to go off of the pill two months ago. Well, as of this month, I have gained 10 pounds, (about 1/2 a day) and I have facial hair as well as acne that hurts all over my face and body. I am normally 115 pounds and am 126 now while gaining those two pounds just since Sunday. I noticed my weight gain in July which is when I increased my workouts to 6-7 days a week as well as less eating and I still did not notice anything but gain. I called my doctor and she put me on Metformin. I have been taking it for 3 days now and I already increased it to 1000mg/day because I have not had any side effects besides dry mouth. Does anyone know when I will notice a difference? I noticed most of the forums had people that lost weight but were heavily overweight before. Anyone else have the same thing happen as I did? I am on the verge of an emotional breakdown with everything that is going on in my body..

" I have facial hair as well as acne that hurts all over my face and body"

Sounds like high testosterone.
