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 more

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?

Maybe : PCOS is definately treatable, so you need to discuss treatment with your GYN. As far as curing it, weight loss can correct the hormone imbalance for most women. If you are one of the unsusual thin PCOS patients, then weight loss won't help, and treatment is needed. ...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?

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
