Common Questions and Answers about Metformin getting pregnant

glucophage

I ovulated on femara but didn't get pregnant thus month I took only my 1500mg of metformin. I've been on metformin since October at 1500mg and never missed a pill. If you stick to it and exercise it could get you pregnant. I just did yoga/pilates I heard it was good for fertility and only started it this cycle and got pregnant. Good luck to you!! That's just my own experience with met. Hope you get good luck with it too. It's got nasty side effects but don't give up or go down on the dosage.
Thank you, I wS diagnosed with pcos a year ago and was on metformin for 8 months before getting pregnant, I thought I could never concieve as well. Your reply makes me feel a little better.once again thank you.
No one knows how long it will take to get pregnant on that combination everyone is different.
I started metformin a month ago due to high testosterone and not being able to get pregnant with my second. After all the blood work, I find out that my high testosterone what's killing of anything that I was conceiving without even knowing it. I was diagnosed with PCOS even though I still get a period every month regularly and I test positive for ovulation every month. I am now regular every 30 days and this is the first month I will try to conceive on metformin.
they discovered that she had it, put her on metformin and she is now pregnant! That happened in less then a month I do believe. So, yes I think it helps getting pregnant. I will also add, I never had any side effects with it as many do.
Metformin helped me start to lose weight after that miscarriage and in January 2009 I had lost about 10-15 lbs (my mind is foggy so I don't remember exactly how much I lost). Anyway I ended up getting pregnant that cycle and got my BFP on February 13, 2009. My baby girl is 17-months now! I took progesterone the first trimester with her as my previous miscarriage was due to low progesterone and we wanted to prevent another M/C (that miscarriage had been my second one).
while mine was gone on vaca and she told me that the insulin was probably what was causing the problems and that once it was regulated with the metformin I should be pregnant in 3 months or less. She has had good luck with people getting pregnant the first cycle. Right now I am still waiting a while b4 I can take a test but hoping.. My bbt chart is showing like I ovulated 2 times and my cervix is soft like I ovulated 2 times also so now completely sure... Just hoping to get pregnant....
i used provera before and it was to start my af..i never knew it could stop it ? i was dx with PCOS last yr around this time and have been on met since than..i ve managed to lose 20lbs and at the beggining i was having abnormal bleedings till i found out i had polyps blockege in my uteres i had surgery and i was put on 15000mg a day still not ovulating or af so he jumped it to 2000mg a day and 6 months into it finally i was regualted but still not ovulating so i tried clomid..
I was wondering if there is a chance I could get pregnant on it.. I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now. I had stopped taking metformin for awhile because of my stomach hurting when I took it and now I am on 1000mg a day. Any advice is much appreciated. Do you think it will work or what should my next step be?
Anyone been on Metformin? Any problems? Weight gain or loss? Anyone got preggo when you started it and if so, how long did it take? Did you use anything with the Metformin to get preggo? Just need some answers. Recently dx with PCOS and have been TTC for abotu 2 years now. Thanks!!!
All of your advice is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately I took it upon myself to stop taking Metformin. My side effects were increasingly getting worse, I even started losing hair. I decided to listen to my body. We have a meeting with our re on June 2nd. Maybe they can put me on something else. I was still only taking one pill I can't imagine what my body would have done if I had worked up to taking 4 a day. It was very scary. Again, thanks for all the input!!!

the metformin not only helps to regulate ovulation, if you are not ovulating on your own, but it also helps your glucose and insulin levels which is a big issue in someone with PCOS. I was diagnosed with PCOS after my 2nd mc and started with an RE. We tested everything under the sun, came up with PCOS and insulin resistance and a few other things that could have been slight possible issues with my miscarriages.

Last April (2008) I stopped getting periods and in July I was diagnosed with PCOS. In August I began taking Metformin to help with ovulation. In October I got pregnant and in December I miscarried. On December 22, I had a D&C. Since then, I've been taking 1000mg of Metformin twice daily. I never had any side effects to the drug as far as I could tell, but over the last few months I've been experiencing sever nausea and vomiting randomly.
For me, i was overweight, and i took metformin for years before getting pregnant. The first 6 months of my medication, Aunt flo was so erratic, sometimes, it comes twice in a month or not at all. So it does take some determination on your part to see this through.
I have to work really hard to lose weight anyway but it does help with the metformin. I still work out and eat right but I would do that without metformin and loose no weight. When I am on metformin I have lost some weight. Its not going to just fall off though.
I have PCOS and they put me on Metformin awhile ago and added the synthroid shortly after. I am currently take clomid to try and help but if it doesn't IUI is my next option. I have no children yet but I am trying my best to get there. Good luck and hope it all works out for you.
i have been on metformin for a year at 1500mg per day and still nothing. My biggest fear is maybe I should just give up on my dream of having a big family and just go with what i have now. How bad is your PCOS. maybe my doctor misdiagnosed me or something. Although i have been to 10 doctors and they all same thing but maybe there is something else wrong.
Anyone here on Metformin and have a success story? I have been on Metformin 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.
and i heard about preseed lubricant also increases chances.can any one suggest me how to increase my chances of getting pregnant?..and any success stories with this medication?
I have PCOS and was taking Metformin and Clomid and am 18 weeks pregnant with triplets. It took me almost a year to get pregnant. You might ask about Clomid at your next appointment. It seems to be commonly prescribed with Metformin for PCOS.
I have been on metformin for 3 years and since I've been pregnant I havent had any problems, when i wasnt pregnant I had the symptoms you have now. I would talk to your doctor. Mine told me once you get pregnant you wont need it anymore but if you're having problems talk to your doc.
There are a lot of side effects to metformin - presumably you would already know if you are getting them - digestive problems and diarreah are the big ones - also headaches etc. The metformin should not stop you from falling pregnant but you will want to discuss with your doc whether you stay on it once you are pregnant (assuming you are taking for blood sugar issues not just fertility).
Yesterday i had a Hysterosalpingogram, i went ahead with the test as i was quite sure there was no chance i could be pregnant, but today my boobs are still sore so i have been trying to find in formation on the net but every question i enter on to google it comes back with the answer 'are you pregnant!
My appt isnt until Feb 10th for bloodwork and a first ultrasound. i gave up on clomid in august same with metformin bc of all the side effects. me and my DH agreed to let God bring us a blesing when he was ready to so three days before our very first vacation together we had intercourse and that was our lucky day January 6th, 2011 i conceived Baby #2! Im praying this is it the start to a healthy pregnancy.
