Hi ladies,

Did any of you go back on met while breastfeeding? I hear it is safe, but is makes me a bit nervous (DD is 10 weeks old). On the other hand my pcos symptoms are really back! I'm getting headaches, feeling sluggish and unable to lose any weight (even with concerted effort).

Does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!!

Me: 33

DH: 35
