Hello doctor,

I am a PCOS patient. I have regular periods, but heavy bleeding, overweight, high sugar levels, and the egg size is 15 with using the medicine. But I could not conceive, and extreme hair thinning and hair fall. I am on metformin twice a day from last week. I want you to suggest any supplement for my hair loss. I am very upset. Kindly help.
