I have pcos and have been on 1500mg a day of metformin but no period, anyone else?

I have been taking metformin since 2008 on and off but now I'm more consistant since I've been researching how good it is. The bad thing is that I have not gotten a period and I have not lost weight even with diet. The one thing I have a hard time with is taking it at the same time everyday.

Answer on I have pcos and have been on 1500mg a day of metformin but no period, anyone else?

I would go talk to the doctor. You should be getting the period regularly and if you haven't lost weight with the meds, diet and exercise, there is something going on in your system.
Are you on any bc pills and with pcos you should be on both the pill and metformin.
Also I have an 18 year old who has pcos and she was on them both, but after a year and a half she was told to stop the metformin, it's effective dies out after then as the bosy gets used to the meds.
I recommend you do back to the doc and get all your blood work done so he/she can she the hormone levels.
