Hey, I have PCOS too. It is very hard to lose weight for me and after going on a low carb diet, I ended up with ulcerative colitis. Not sure if it was related, but just a warning! Anyway, it's good if you were able to lose 25 pounds! I want children, but can't unless I want to try IVF... The disease sucks!
Metformin made me sick, I grew facial hair, i only have a period twice a year or so...
Not sure if this will cheer you up but, it can always be worse! I just had my colon cut out due to UC, I'd go back to just having PCOS any day! Not to minimize your issues, just saying I hope you can enjoy your life despite your health issues.
