Q: Why am I being prescribed Metformin for PCOS? I am neither TTC nor Diabetic

Ans: While you might not have the classical symptoms of diabetes, you may be at risk of developing full-blown diabetes. While PCOS is caused primarily by too much male hormones, this in turn could be because you have too much insulin. Too much insulin can cause hormonal troubles in the ovaries, because it stimulates overproduction of testosterone, the male hormone. Metformin is an insulin-sensitizing agent and improves the body’s response to insulin.This is one of the answers to this very popular question: Why metformin for PCOS?

There have been reports that metformin can also help with weight loss. It is also said to decrease the risks of cardiovascular diseases and endometrial cancer in women with PCOS. However, metformin use in the long term can deplete many vital nutrients from your body. Metformin can also cause a variety of side effects. The safest and surest way to treat PCOS is through changes in diet and lifestyle, something we swear by at Sepalika.
