    PCOS?

    Any slimming worlders with PCOS? I was diagnosed about 2 years ago, really struggling with my tablets at the moment as they make me feel really sick. Would be great to hear from anyone who has PCOS too!

    Hey! I was diagnosed with PCOS 4 years ago when I was 17, I've always found it a struggle to lose weight, I joined SW 11 weeks ago and I've currently lost 23lbs, What tablets are you on? I have received no help at all with mine xx

    I am on metformin, I am supposed to take 4 500mg tablets a day but they make me feel so sick and my doctor is completely useless, in fact I was on the wrong pills for a long time and this only came to light via a chance meeting with a fill in doctor.

    My mum has it too and when on her tablets (slightly lower dose than mine) she looses far more weight than when not on them so I wanted to get on track with them but just can't tolerate the sickness.

    Oh, I've never heard of those, but if they make you feel sick I don't think I want to try them!! Oh wow that's lucky then! I'm getting sick of having different diagnosis from different drs!! I've had one today too! I'm on no tablets at all, I just don't know what to do, hopefully losing weight will relieve any symptoms xx

    I think it's marvelon (30/150mg) I think the 150 is the important bit, think there are a few pills that will do it
