Pcos, taking metformin, irregular periods, infertility and reversed LH: FSH ratio, trying to conceive

Hi, I was diagnosed with PCOS 3 weeks ago and have started taking metformin . I am trying to conceive, but my cycles are very irregular. Usually they are long and can get heavy at times, but are usually 30 to 40 days apart. Is there anything I can do to get my periods to be a normal length without going on birth control? The only symptoms from PCOS I have are irregular periods, infertility and reversed LH: FSH ratio. Everything I am reading says that I need to lose weight, but my BMI is 21.9. Is there anything you would recommend?

Welcome to HCM

your history suggest that you are the category of the lean PCO

you can try single hormone tablets instead of the combined birth control pills for a short period
this is the only possible way we can get your periods coming regularly

you can meet your consultant and discuss about the same and they can help you

hope to have answered your query
