I also have PCOS and was TTC for 3 long years tying different medication. Metformin didn’t worm for me and gave me horrendous digestive problems however, I tried dieting, I cut out carbs as much as I could, lots of red meat and started walking to become fitter and help shift the weight, I lost a stone and my periods returned and I got my first BFP! It did result in a MMC but they put it down to hormones being out of sync due to my PCOS but next time I’ll be given hormone supplements. There is a light at end of the tunnel for ladies with PCOS xx
