Pcos Can Be Cured
If I have pcos, and the endocrino put me on metformin, and as pcos can't be cured. Do I have to take metformin for the rest of mi life?
Not usually: Metformin is useful for women with pcos when trying to conceive, and in early pregnancy. It's safe to take for the whole pregnancy if advised by your dr. If you have or develop type 2 diabetes, or have severe Insulin resistance, then you may need to take metformin or other insulin-sensitizing medications long term or when not trying to conceive. Weight loss and exercise help Insulin sensitivity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I believe I have PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) I am going to get tested for it, but my question for you is, can PCOS ever be cured?
Favor parovarian / partubalcyst ? What does it mean, do I hv pcos? And how can I cure it naturally ? Any medication for it ? I did not get periods yet
Whoa: Paraovarian or paratubal cyst and pcos have nothing at all in common. What are you asking? None of these can be cured naturally, pcos can often be helped but not cured with medication. Consider asking a clear question we can answer, be glad to try again. ...Read more

I lost wieght and i have almost lost all the symptoms of PCOS. Doesnt this mean that i hv managed to cure PCOS completely?
Improved? yes: I would say you've definitely improved your situation but to say that you've "cured" it is a stretch. Are you having regular menses now? That would be the true sign of overcoming PCOS. PCOS is an inborn condition, something that is part of your genetic makeup. I would predict that if you gained weight in the future that your PCOS symptoms would come back. Screen for diabetes as you get older. ...Read more
