Part of you: PCOS is not something you get rid of....it's something that's part of your nature. You can do things that keep your weight at a reasonable point like diet and exercise. The more weight you gain, the worse the PCOS can get. Metformin helps some, doesn't help others. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is just to keep your periods regular. You may need fertility meds to help you ovulate when you want to conceive.
