Metformin & Progeste: Try Metformin and natural progesterone cream (or Prometrium). Metformin, 500 mg three times daily, is the drug of choice for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The herb Berberine, in the same dose, can add to Metformin's effectiveness. Also, progesterone will help shrink an ovarian cyst. This combination may help you avoid surgery.
