Hi. Welcome To HealthcareMagic

PCOD is a Hormonal imbalance and there is insulin resistance(high insulin could not enter into the cell to help glucose metabolism). Some doctors prescribe metformin to correct this insulin resistance. This will also regularize the cycles. Most people use it for long time. Small doses will not harm.

Benforce M is a lipid soluble thiamine or vitamin which is used in PCOS or Infertility as it prevents the glycation of products which cause aging and thus helps in regularizing cycles and conception..

Answer to the question- Insulin levels in PCOD patients are high. It is a chronic problem meaning it is life long problem.

PCOD also leads to Infertility problems. So these medications are basic medicines used to control the cycles in the beginning.
