Just lurking and wanted to echo the other ladies..
PCOS is definitely treatable, even if you can only treat the symptoms. Metformin is fantastic, though you want to make sure you have the ER version (extended release), since it can really upset the stomach.
I'm considered pre-diabetic and there are a lot of diets that are out there that work for PCOS, I follow the GI diet myself (which also works for diabetics) - and if you lose 10% of your body weight (if you're not a skinny pcoser) you can actually start ovulating on your own. And if not, there are things you can take to help (like clomid).
And don't be discouraged about TTCing with it.. the medical assistance sucks since it makes it all very clinical, but the end result is definitely worth it
If you need to talk/vent/whatever, feel free to bug me.. I'm always around!
