Metformin pcos pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Metformin pcos pregnancy


Avatar f tn I had to stop taking metformin completely as soon as I got my pregnancy confirmed. I was taking it for PCOS and insulin resistance. My dr said I'll probably start taking it after delivery and after I finished breastfeeding.
435139 tn?1255463991 didn't like that idea and my friend said that her doctor put her on metformin (she has pcos though) and if not pregnant in a couple months, she is going on clomid...Does Metformin help you get pregnant? Anyone who has any insight on this that is willing to share, it would be greatly appreciated!
415867 tn?1323369103 Unlike most fertility treatments, metformin does not cause a risk of having a multiple or twin pregnancy. If metformin alone does not help a woman with PCOS who is trying to conceive, a fertility doctor may prescribe Clomid, as well. If metformin is prescribed for a woman with PCOS to help restore a regular, normal menstrual cycle, metformin can work within 4 to 8 weeks.

Avatar n tn My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now, I recently discovered I have pcos and I have been on metformin since december. Has anyone actually has any success just taking metformin?
7878662 tn?1395007514 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.
Avatar f tn Yes got pregnant with my last baby 3 months on metformin. I took it in the first trimester, then stopped it. This pregnancy I didn't use any metformin, I got pregnant 6 months after I had my last one.
330481 tn?1309491843 I am just wondering what all Metformin will do for me. I have PCOS and have been trying to concieve for about two years now. I have recently been put on birth control to regulate my periods after taking Provera and Femara for two months with no luck. My Dr. prescibed Metformin for me a few months ago, but for some reason I never took it.
Avatar n tn They also use metformin if you have an insulin resistance. This will regulate that. If you have pcos they use metformin also. It can make you sick to your stomach if you eat alot of carbs. But if it was not for metformin I would me ovulating. I have now ovulated 2 times and I am about to ovulate again( i feel it starting) it will happen within the next week.
1512722 tn?1313701479 Hey ladies i just started Metformin today! can i get some stories of bfps using it? or just you experience on it?
Avatar f tn I dont know your fertility background but I was told I couldn't have kids and nor would I be a good candidate for fertility treatments, but, I had a healthy baby girl in July 2013 (prior to pregnancy was taking metformin For 1 year) and by May 2014 I was naturally pregnant (after baby #1 I was no longer insulin resistant so I hadn't taken metformin) again with a baby who's doing splendid.
Avatar n tn So I was just put on metformin for an insulin resistance issue which is causing infertility. DH and I have been TTC for 2 years...ever since a m/c in 2005. I am not sure what the metformin is actually going to doctor predicted pregnancy in as early as 3 months...but I still don't understand what this medication is actually going to do or how soon it will do it...someone else on this med help?
330481 tn?1309491843 Anyone been on Metformin? Just took my first pill today. I heard some good things about it and some bad things. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Also, if you were on it, did it help you get preggo?
Avatar n tn it just take a little bit longer sometimes. I've just got done doing ivf and I'm still on metformin through my whole pregnancy. Goodluck hun!
Avatar n tn So I was put on 1500 mg of metformin 3-4 months ago I tried it for 4 days I was so sick I went off. Ever sense I have been feeling guilty. I am working on loosing weight and some exercise....I think I am going to try the metformin again. Maybe start out at 500mg...and work my way up. Has anyone else done this....when do you take your metformin. Can I take it at night and if I do takr it at night do I have to take anything with it. I dont want to eat before bed.
918479 tn?1272841752 Is there some reason why you are immediately suspecting the Metformin though? I am just curious because when I was diagnosed with PCOS some seven or eight (give or take) years ago I was put on metformin as well. I experienced severe nausea as well as vomitting, diarreah, upset stomach, etc., etc., etc. but this was something that I experience as soon as the metformin was in my system. As soon as I stopped taking it, it went away.
Avatar f tn Hello i was diagnosed with pcos february 5,2013 and was put on metformin 500mg twice a day. How long did it take you to conceive on metformin?
797365 tn?1239354271 I have PCOS. I am taking clomid and metformin for the last 4 month.This is my last cycle of clomid. I think i ovulate because i am having regular period (29 days cycle). Can anyone PLZ tell me does clomid works late for those who has PCOS.
Avatar f tn she also told some people take metformin up to 12 weeks i read in some internet site chance of first trimester miscarrriage is high with pcos.. now i am confused shud i stop taking metformin suddenly... stopping metformin suddenly wont effect embryo?
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 and was put on Metformin 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....
Avatar f tn If you have PCOS it is best to be on metformin. It helps control some of the hormones that are out of wak. It may take awhile to work for some. But metformin is not used to get pregnant. it just helps with the symptoms of PCOS. So that your body can get pregnant. I have been taking it for a year now. and it can be hard to get used to so hang in there and dont give up on it. Its better to have it than to not have it while ttc.
1582478 tn?1296594823 I say stick with the metformin...I too have PCOS and take both clomid and metformin in order to O...I just got my BFP yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So it is very possible...I also have cramping like AF is coming, but she's not...everyone is saying that cramping is normal in early pregnancy...if I were you I would test and then ask for provera or a progesterone shot if your cycle doesn't start in the next week...good luck hun...
Avatar f tn have any of you conceived after taking metformin?pls...pls help me...IS there any side effects of metformin tablets...have anybody got your period regular after taking metformin tablets???pls help...
Avatar n tn I don't have PCOS, but my doctor put me on metformin anyway, because I was having trouble conceiving and had 2 m/c. I did have 3 IUI's and 2 IVF's before, which were unsuccessful. But, after I started metformin, together w/ follistim I got preg. w/ twins on the first IUI attempt. I am now 15 wks 3 days. I think it really works, good luck to you.
1660049 tn?1326092618 Are you monitoring your blood sugar levels? Metformin is a diabetes drug that lowers blood sugar. It can be used to treat PCOS but it will still affect your blood sugar and hypoglycemia can be dangerous. That said :) has your doctor checked your FSH and LH levels? Hubby's sperm count? Link above to good article on PCOS. I have friends who swear that red raspberry leaves (usually as a tea) are the best thing to help conception....
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with pcos yesterdat and it explains alot of my health problems! I was wondering if anyone with pcos has taken Metfornin 500 mg and what happened?"pregnancy weight loss etc.
207106 tn?1189759422 I believe all women with PCOS ahould go right to metformin and clomid (or femara) and not waste their time doing anything else (natural cycles, metformin alone, etc!)!! GOOD LUCK!!!
