Hello,
PCOS can not be cured but can be taken care of.
Conceiving in PCOS is really difficult but not impossible.
You have to be patient and be regularly under the guidance of your doctor,
The most important part of treatment on PCOS is shedding weight by doing intense regular aerobic exercises and diet control.It is said that a mere reduction of 10% of your weight would result in normalisation of your periods.
Continue taking your medications as prescribed but the dose of GLYCOMET 500 should be one tablet twice daily and not one daily,as you are taking.
Thanks
