Hello Sudha
Thank you for getting in touch with us. PCOS is commonly seen in many women and can lead to various problems like obesity, hirsutism (excess facial and body hair), infertility etc. It can also also cause insulin resistance and that is the reason your Doctor has given you Metformin. PCOS is a disease which causes an increase in LH in the body while FSH decreases. Krimson 35 has cyproterone acetate and ethinyloestradiol. It will block the action of androgens which leads to a decrease in facial and body hair. It also acts as an contraceptive agent. So you cannot become pregnant while you are taking it. In the future, if you want to conceive, you should stop taking Krimson 35 and start with ovulation inducing agents. Hope this helped.
