Should I continue to take Benforce-M


I am Siva. last week I have visited a gynecologist regarding irregularity in my periods.

Doctor told me that due to Harmon lack, the egg was not getting released. So that only this problem got occurred.

So, Doctor advised me to take Benfore-M twice a day.

BUt from my friends, I heard that this table will be given to sugar patients.

Please let me know should I stop taking this medicine or not?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Benforce M contains Metformin which is prescribed when you have polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS which is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance.So ovaries develop more follicles than normal every month.

Metformin is useful for treating irregular periods, ovulation induction which helps in conception, weight loss, prevention of type 2 diabetes, and prevention of gestational diabetes mellitus in women with PCOS.

You should take the medicines as advised by your doctor.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
