Hi there,

Im 21 years old, i am 5 stone over my BMI and i have PCOS. I have tried losing weight for so long but to no hope. I have been on Orlistat - which didnt make a bit of difference - and now the doctor has put me onto Metformin. As i have been on the pill for a very long time - to regulate my periods - can someone suggest if the pill could be the reason i have been struggling for so long to lose weight?

I dont know what else to do. If the Metformin doesnt work and i have to come off the tablets, the same thing will happen as it did with the orlistat, i will end up putting on more weight and i cant bare it.

look forward to your comments!
