Hello, I am a 36 year old with PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome) and am experiencing all the "wonderful" side effects of it. Are there any women out there with PCOS who are taking anything and having success with it? I'd love to hear from you if so!

Have you tried a low carbohydrate diet?  Is your weight normal for your height?

My wife's friend had/has this and got pretty good results with metformin - cleared up her acne and she was able to get pregnant. There's a great chapter on PCOS in this book - http://www.amazon.com/Safe-Uses-Cortisol-William-Jefferies/dp/0398075018 - where Dr. Jefferies uses low doses of cortisol to correct PCOS. Metformin is, to me, a round-about way of getting to the problem since it's hormonal. Look for a naturopath - http://www.naturopathic.org/ - in your area or a holistic physician. Your diet, weight, exercise, etc all play a part.
