Dear Doc, I ve been on Metformin for the past 1 month and my menses are yet to arrive and am being treated for PCOS, not severe, just mild ones.

Wait & See: Keep taking metformin unless you experience any side effect. Based on severity treatment of PCOS usually involves multiple steps including hormone therapy in the form of birth control pills. Your doctor will determine the timing and choice of therapy. I think you are in good hand and wish you a good luck! ...Read more
