24 and diagnosed with pcos

by Tessa

I'm hoping someone can give me some clarity. I was diagnosed with pcos in April, and immediately my doctor put me on metformin. I've been taking 1500 mg daily since then, and I don't really notice a difference. I also have had continuous bleeding for weeks at a time. I'm miserable. I came across this site and I'm now curious about progesterone. I have come to the conclusion that I no longer want to take the metformin medication. I don't have diabetes and therefore, I don't think I should be taking a drug meant for diabetics. Can someone recommend what I should do? I am no longer on any form of birth control because I feel like I almost want to start with a clean slate. Any advice would be much appreciated. Also, I have absolutely zero sex drive. I am wondering if that has anything to do with what is going on. I am still learning things about pcos, but I haven't come across too many things saying that low to no sex drive is a big symptom.

You are very wise not to continue with Metformin or BCP. Did your doctor tell you that Metformin destroys vitamin B12? If not, he should have, but many do not. Read this All drug based Contraceptives have a potential to cause harm too. Please consider taking the anti oxidants mentioned on the PCOS page. Between 150mg to 250mg Natpro progesterone cream is needed, more is often needed, it all depends on how severe things are. There is a connection between PCOS and Insulin Resistance, when you say that you do not have diabetes, have you actually been tested? Please read the Libido page, you are too young to be having problems like this.

What is your Vitamin D3 level? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone and is connected to every single functioning cell in our bodies.
