Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It appears these are symptoms of PCOD. You need to get your hormones checked for Prolactin, Androgens, blood glucose, LH/FSH ratio on day 3 of menses as well. Metformin is to improve your glucose tolerance. PCOD will reduce only whenn you lose weight. You need to stop eating junk food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do brisk walking exercise everyday for 40 minutes to help lose weight. Once weight reduces you will experience relief from symptoms.
