Glucophage and PCOS

My gynae diagnosed me with PCOS via an internal probe. He has therefore given me a prescription for Glucophage and Provera.

My question is can I take Glucophage even though my insulin levels have not yet been tested (blood test)?

Not everyone with PCOS need to be on glucophage, there are specific indications and you should ask him why you are on it. I agrre your insulin levels should be checked along with afew other investigations
