  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and long-term side effects from medication?

    Hi,

    I have been dealing with PCO for a while now. I am anxious to know if any of you are having bad side effects from the metformin you are taking? I have been. My B12 absorption is low.

    I am also afraid about the long-term effects it can have on my vascular system (it increases homocysteine levels which can cause fat to deposit in vessels). What more or what else can I do? For anyone out there with PCO--how long do you plan on taking all the medication (specifically metformin)..do you believe it to be a lifelong thing?

    Also, has anyone with PCO been successful in weight loss? I am struggling.

    Feeling so stuck--looking for answers hopefully.
