Thanks for the query.

Metformin and krimson 35 are both drugs which are routinely used in the treatment of PCOS. Both drugs have multiple functions. Krimson 35 has added function of contraception.

While you are on these tablets you are protected from pregnancy too. You need to take added protection during the 1 month of use. After that if you take the pills properly without missing any doses then you dont have to worry about pregnancy.

PCOS is known to cause infertility in some patients. Fertility problem can be addressed after the cycles are regulated. I suggest that you finish your 6 months of treatment and then whenever you want conception, plan it with your doctor. Medical drugs which induce ovulation may be tried in consultation with your primary doctor in the future if you face fertility problems.

Hope my answer has helped you understand about your condition. If there are any further queries, I will be available to address them.
