I have PCOS and was usuing metformin for 1.5 yrs till i got pregnant. After delivery again i got PCOS and my doctor advised me to take Diane 35. Why she did not told me to continue with metformin as it suited me and everything was under control.

Please advice.

hello
welcome to healthcare magic.
do not worry, the diane 35 that you are taking as such does not cause weight gain. it contains estrogen which causes slight water retention and bloatdness ahich you might be felling as weight gain. diane 35 does not have progesterone , progesterone is know to cause weight gain. if you are really trying to lose weight and your unable to do so then get your thyroid fuction tested. also start haviing an early dinner before sunset as this really helps.

Hello, my name is Kaitlyn. I ve been taking Diane 35 as an acne medication for 2 years now. It cleared my acne but I ve had some side effects (thinning of the pubic area, sore breasts, broken veins in my eyes, dry eyes and weight gain). I m uncomfortable continuing this medication, but I m afraid of how my body might react when I stop. Is it true that this pill will worsen my acne problem when I stop taking it? What are the most common side effects of stopping this pill? Also; how long does it usually take until your hormones go back to normal? Thank you! I hope to hear back:)
