Hi, @bec77 – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sounds like you are being your own best advocate as a patient.

A couple of Mayo Clinic articles you may be interested in are:

On prediabetes https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/prediabetes/symptoms-causes/syc-20355278

On menorrhagia https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/menorrhagia/symptoms-causes/syc-20352829

I'd like to tag @retiredteacher @nativefloridian @sandytoes14 @2929 @dorisena @mcmurf2 @jesussaves1 for any input on your norethindrone plus metformin combination, plus the PCOS, uterine fibroids, menorrhagia and prediabetes you mentioned.

Do you know if your doctor works on software in which a prescription that might interact with another prescription inputted would signal with a flag of some kind? Have you had the chance to speak to your pharmacist about your concerns with the two medications taken simultaneously?

thank you for the links. I read both of them. Is some of this info on heavy bleeding new? like past the 1970'w early 80s? I was a mess when I started my period at 14 back in the 70's. My sister was concerned,, my mother was not. My dr knew. nothing was done. Now I have fibroids ( getting a second opinion at mayo end of Oct). AND,, I was just informed today that my red count was 5.something, signifying I am pre- diabetic. Both sister and brother developed type 2. I have lost 40+ lbs since last fall. (I'm 5'6" and now weigh 180),, have been down to 178. I JUST also had a yearly physical and I"m sure these blood tests were also ran then,, but nobody said anything. My psych just ordered these tests. sigh… Can't wait to go to Mayo and get a over all assessment done with a team of drs… I just don't feel like I"m getting all the info or 'help' I"m needing.
