I'm not ttc but I think might be starting this and would love to hear your tips as far as side effects or stories about whether it helped w/PCOS symptoms... I don't think I actually have the syndrome, but I do have polysystic ovaries (50+ cysts last spring), insulin resistance, and am having a heck of a time losing mid section weight. (any weight at all! ugh)

I tried Met. and Glucophage years ago but had to go off it made me dog sick. But now they have time release so I'm hoping the side effects will be more tolerable and maybe it would help my periods (18 days long) and weight loss. I go in for an u/s and bloodwork Wed. TIA!
