Common Questions and Answers about Metformin and pregnancy success


Avatar n tn HI, If <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> prenatal vitamins have not helped then the next step is to go in for induction of ovulation. This when combined with IUI will give excellent results. Consult your Doctor. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided.

Avatar n tn My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now, I recently discovered I have pcos <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> since december. Has anyone actually has any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span> just taking Metformin?

415867 tn?1323369103 Here is something I just googled about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> PCOS, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the way it could help! Hope this helps ya, it helped me in making my decision to take it!!!! RESTORATION OF NORMAL MENSTRUAL CYCLE. A number of studies have shown that menstruation can be restored in many women with PCOS. For example, in a study at Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, 43 women who were not having periods took Glucophage, and 39 of them resumed normal menses.
Avatar n tn Up until now I had been taking 100 mg of clomid and just getting maybe one follie <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> one very big cyst. This month, I took the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 50 mg of clomid, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I had 2 nice sized follies and no cysts. I consider that a Metformin Success. Just had an iui today - my first one - will have to just wait now and see how it goes. Waiting...waiting...waiting.
4067667 tn?1349536622 Hi, Im new here. Im 22 years old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> been ttc naturally for a year didnt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span>. A few months ago went to gyno to for hormone check up and have my hubby checked his semen. He was normal, but doc found out that Im not ovulating. I also diagnose of PCOS when I was 18. So, my doc gave me clomid 50mg to help me ovulate and on day 21 I was asked to check my progesterone, but Im still not ovulating. Now my doc dose up my clomid to 100mg and she also gave me Metformin. Im hoping to get pregnant.
4067667 tn?1349536622 yes clomid 100 mg plus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> 1500mg per day may work with Success rate 20% per cycle . i hope you to be pregnant soon . PCOS is a simple disorder but need close monitore to check dose versus response .
120255 tn?1197070547 I was reading some stuff online today and saw that a lot of people were told not to take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span>. Has anyone taken it (or stopped) during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span>? I don't go to the doctor for another month, though I put in a call. I'd just like to hear people's stories. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I continued to take until about my 12th week of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> in Feb gave birth to a baby boy. I swear by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span>, I think it is great and for me I am convinced that my son was born bc of it. Keep trying and dont give up. Did your doctor say anything to you about polycystic ovarian syndrome..just wondering bc thats why I was on Metformin.
1712386 tn?1308429581 Anyone here on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span> story? I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> for only a month and a half for my PCOS to help regulate me and help me get pregnant. Last week (about 8 days ago) I had some very very light bleeding that only showed when I wiped and it wasn't every time.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I've just finished my first cycle of Fermera (days 3-7 5mg) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have also started Metformin, the doc is cycling me up to 1500mg by week 4 (250/500/1000/1500)... I'm not entirely sure what to expect, I've started the OPK tests and nothing yet, I'm at day 15 now, but based on this App I have - it's predicting my fertile days to start on Aug 31 ...
Avatar n tn I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> for a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have lost 19 pounds i am taking it for pcos <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it has worked wonders i also have a normal cycle now i dont know if you have one or not but if you dont hopefully it will help
Avatar f tn I am very new to this type of thing, but I do find that reading <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span> stories from other women who have PCOS, really helps me to cope with the fact that I have fertility issues. I am on my second round of 50mg of clomid and Im also taking Metformin. Are there any women who have Successfuly conceived on Clomid and how many rounds did it take?
415867 tn?1323369103 Have had a total of 2 miscarriages (1 ectopic) and one Successfull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span>. I did clomid before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> miscarriage both of the times I've gotten pregnant on it. My ectopic was this past Aug. I finally have a diagnosis of PCOS as of yesterday (I thought I had it for a long time but the u/s confirmed it yesterday) So my doc gave me Metformin to try (my request as friends of mine had Success with it). Has anyone had good results with just doing Metformin?
Avatar f tn it will happen for all of us! They say that using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Clomis in combination has a much higher <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span> rate than just clomid alone. I also heard that staying on Metformin during Pregnancy helps to reduce your risk of miscarrige (especially those who have PCOS as our rates of MC are alot higher) Good luck ladies!!!
1434731 tn?1382725984 Wow did I have a head ache this morning when I woke up! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Provera together gives me a headache! So far no side effects to the provera, taking it at night seems to be helping! Metformin 500mg per day (for now) is not so bad, I have some diarrhea but not like the last time i tried met at 1000mg per day to start! Talking about egg retrieval and maybe gestational carrier (that's what surrogates are called in Michigan) if my condition doesn't reverse!
Avatar f tn Last month I did my first round of clomid 50 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span> on pg but I did ovulate on day 16 so my OBGYN upped my dosage to clomid 100 mg! Me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my husband want a baby really bad! I know I will have one in God's time! I miscarried in early 2009. we tried for a long time on our on then I decided to go to a specialist. I was put on Metformin 1500 mg and Prometrium 200 mg. There was no Success on just that so I was then put on the clomid, estradiol and progesterone cream.
Avatar f tn I take 2000 mlg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my boobs feel like someone is pulling them down continuously and my nipples are really sensitive. I was just wondering what side effect you ladies have with metforin. Also im nausea at least 10 hours out of the day.
Avatar f tn I have a 5 year old daughter- I was not trying for a baby, but was having unprotected sex with my husband for 2 years and somehow she just happened. Since then, I was diagnosed with PCOS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> 500mg twice a day. I do not get periods on my own so I took Provera to bring down my period and then took Clomind days 5-9. I dont know if I ovulated or not, the sticks never do it for me....
245020 tn?1209661543 I had serious diarrhea but eventually your body adjusts and MOST women start to tolerate it after a while. I've had much more Success with an extended release brand name version called Glumetza. First of all, when I was on the regular stuff, I was supposed to take it three times a day, and I NEVER remembered. This is extended release, so I take it at night - four pills. It is very expensive though. I have insurance and I still pay almost $60/mo for it!
Avatar f tn I have pcos as well and have never had regular periods. With my first child, I was taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> using ovulation kits. I am now pregnant with my second child. This time I tried clomid (with no Success) then switched to letrozole. I was about to go back to taking Metformin, but found out I was pregnant. It is very difficult when you barely ever ovulate. Good luck!
Avatar n tn She diagnosed me with pcos <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> 1500 mg (for PCOS), prenatals <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> progesterone 200 mg (to start my period). We had to not try for 3 months so my hormones could regulate and my cycles could regulate too! Well after about 3 more months of trying still for negative results so I asked to be put on clomid! She kept me on Metformin, prenatals and changed my progesterone pills to the progesterone gel that you insert and she added clomid 50 mg!
Avatar f tn Tamoxifen and gonadotropins are other drugs which can help women with PCOS to get pregnant. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span> rate is about 15 per cent in patients with PCOD taking Clomiphene, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Success</span> depends on the length of treatment and other factors. It varies woman to woman. Technically, it only requires one sperm cell meeting up with a woman's egg cell to cause Pregnancy. There are number of factors which play a role in fertilization and it varies in every case.
1302038 tn?1439578832 I would take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> every day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> provera for 10 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on cycle days 3-7 I was taking clomid. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> you can take provera and clomid together, its the only way to get a period so that you can start your clomid. if you dont get one on your own already. Athough it didnt work for me I was taking it for 5 months. I have heard of alot of people who get it on the first try. alot more got it on the third try.
Avatar n tn I spoke with my doc and he started me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> povera. I stopped taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> after about a month because the tummy problems never went away! (sorry TMI ) Well I used provera from sept 2010 - May 2011 and did not ovulate once even with 3 of those months including Clomid. Provera does not make you ovulate it just induces a period, Metformin lowers your insulin and clomid is for ovulation. Clomid doesn't work for everyone.
780153 tn?1287572547 I saw another Doctor who prescribed me Metformin about 13 months ago. I always had irregular mentrual periods <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Metformin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hardly ever had periods. I ended up taking Birth control just for two months ( actually this year on January 2009) But on the middle of February I decided to skip half of the birth controls and decided not to take them. I still was and am in Metformin till this day. Recently on March 30, 2009 I was rushed to the E.R because of a very discomfort abdominal pain.
413852 tn?1317312312 Before that I had done clomid/iui's, ivf with chemical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> failed fet. With the femara we were also trying "naturally", so i do think it can work well. I am now on my third round of it again after my mc. Hoping for a bfp on Christmas, if not then i am moving on to injectables. Good luck with the femara!!
Avatar f tn I am just wondering if any women have PCOS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have conceived, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> how the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Pregnancy</span> is going? I have been trying for 4 years with no Success and I am starting to get a little depressed since I have pretty much ovulated with every month of meds.. the other thing is I can not keep track of my ovulation and periods because I am so irregular, any suggestions on how to be able to know when you ovulate without having to buy test every month.
