PCOS / Stomach Banding / Pill 2nd option

Hi Gynaedoc,

I need some advice please. I have PCOS with all the symptoms that go with it, excess hair, acne etc. I am also very overweight and have recently had a stomach banding operation with the intention of putting off pregnancy for a year while I lose weight.
I now want to go onto the pill for a year and my own gynae has recommended Diane 35 which he says will help clear up my acne and reduce the symptoms of PCOS. I am worried that Diane 35 will seriously effect my weight loss and I want to know what my alternatives are.

Diane 35 is the best Pill for your problem. The excess weight in PCOS is due to metabolic disturbances and can be helped by following a diabetic type diet and using Glucophage.

Best wishes
