Cysts on ovaries.... PLEASE HELP!
Went to the gynae and on the scan she saw I have cysts on my ovaries. She put me on Sandowz Metformin HCI 500 FC for 6 months. Will this help me in falling pregnant? How long will it take for me to fall pregnant? She wants me to go back onto the pill for 3 months to stabilise my hormones. Do I really have to go back onto the pill? I have been off the pill for almost a year now and is scared that going back onto it will take longer for me to fall pregnant? PLEASE ADVISE!!

The idea is for the Metformin to get you to ovulate, though it does not work in 100% of case. You are not going to fall pregnant without help, so I would agree with your doctor's suggestions.
