Possible: Your doctor placed you on metformin. A diabetes drug that lowers blood sugar. We do use this in PCO patients, but I'm concerned that your doc didn't clarify this with you when it was prescribed. I would ask if you have evidence of PCO or he/she is just presuming it. You may need a more thorough work up. ...Read more
Nearly two-thirds of the United States population is overweight. There are many ways to determine if a person is overweight, but experts believe that a person's body mass index (BMI) is the best way to assess an adult's weight in relation to their height. * A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal. * Adults with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 are considered overweight. There are exceptions. For example, an athlete may have a higher BMI but not be overweight. * Adults with a BMI greater than 30 are considered obese. * Adults with a BMI greater than or equal to 40 are considered extremely obese. * Anyone more than 100 pounds overweight is considered morbidly obese.

I'm female, i started losing my hair about 2-3yrs ago but i also started gaining a lot of facial hair. Could being 100+ lbs overweight add to hairloss?
Yes: You may have entered an androgen predominant metabolism, such as one sees with pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome), where your hormonal levels shift and you have higher percentages of androgens than estrogens. This can lead to the symptoms you describe, and is not uncommon in women who are significantly overweight. Talk to doc about options of diet, lifestyle and possible medication interventions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm about 80 pounds overweight. If i lose this weight will my body balance its hormones and will my facial hair decrease?
Iit should: A lot of the hormones you talk about are stored in fat cells, if you lose the weight from the fat cells and not from muscle mass- it should balance out. You need to do cardio work out and weight training- the weight training is to maintain and preserve, or even build up your muscle mass, as you lose weight. ...Read more

Stein Leventhal: What you describe may be due to stein-leventhal syndrome. See http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001408/ to see if you think this fits your condition. Diagnosis is made by blood and/or urine samples. You need an evaluation by an gynecologist or possibly an endocrine gynecologist. ...Read more

When should I ovulate on metformin? I do not have dietbites a bit overweight my doctor prescribe them to me because I grow facial hair.
Not consistent: Spontaneous menses occur in about 4-6 weeks in most patients. It takes a while to build up to a high enough dose to see some effect. I find that most need to be at least on 500mg twice a day and some need 1000mg twice a day. Ovulation may start a few months later. However, ovulation does not always occur on metformin alone. Adding Clomid to the metformin may make ovulation more consistent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
