Another interesting point is my pcos improved quite noticeably on the internal scan since I had a baby. Apparently pregnancy/birth can help correct it. Which is ironic really, given that so many women can't fall pregnant because of their pcos

I found the thing that gave me the biggest improvement was a low gi diet - just as metformin regulates insulin levels, as does a low gi diet.

I didn't get any side effects from Metformin. I took the XR (extended release?) one at a lowish dose (started on 500mg per day, then up to 1000mg I think).
I'm actually having a blood test this week to see if I should go back on it after having my baby a year ago.
Also my old FS got me to keep taking metformin for the first trimester of pregnancy. Apparently it reduces risk of miscarriage (for pregnancies where mum was already taking it).

pinkzy, with my sisters weight and pcos I should explain lol, one was around 65kg and 169cm when she was having huge cysts and problems, and she went down to 55kg-58kg at the moment and also goes to the gym and runs every day now. So she wasn't overweight at all, and is classed as slightly underweight now, but it's just what made her symptoms go away. She also had zero periods and now they are very regular for the first time in her life. The other was only 68kg at 180cm when she had her symptoms and no period, and now she is 60kg and period is regular and no cysts.
On the other hand I am very overweight and had no symptoms that were bothering me until I went into my almost obese category this past year . SO it seems that for me I am a little better being only slightly overweight and normal weight, but my sisters had to go to underweight (not on purpose, and they look healthy, just in terms of BMI) to have their periods come back and no cysts since they lost the weight.
Seems like zero fat percentage can help I'm doomed!! lol
