Mega - Are you pregnant? I missed something I think in the postings. Kerri - I am now taking 2000mg a day of glucophage. My doctor did not prescribe generic version (he said he has had better luck with name brand), I 'll give him a cycle or two before moving to generic. Are you also taking yours through pregnancy? I have heard different things. I know it is a class B drug but my doctor flat out said through first trimester if I get pregnant on it. . jcr - I am actually feeling okay. I think my body has adjusted fairly well. I have only spent a couple of days in the bathroom (sorry TMI). Since my tube was removed on Spet. 24th, we are not allowed to try again until December. Thanks for asking.

I'm planning on at least staying on it thru the first trimester---maybe even longer...I've heard of some women miscarrying within 2 weeks of stopping even if they were 17 weeks!!! That freaks me out....I never been pregnant before so I don't know. I'll go in one week from today for 8.5 week sono and see how things are going

I was perscibed metformin by my fertility specialist. I followed the same plan as Mega 500 for one week, 1000 for another week and 1500 on the third week. After I was on it for a few weeks I realized I was pregnant and the day of conception was 5 days before I had even started metformin. It was very ironic because we'd been trying for 18 months and been through clomid twice. I stayed on metformin through the first trimester. I think I went down to 1000 milligrams because I felt nauseous at 1500. I lost weight through the 1st trimester and my OB said it was fine. I carried my baby to term and she is now 6 month old. We are getting ready to try for another soon. I'm 39 and I don't have that much time to waste. Anyway, I'm considering metformin again if my OB thinks it's a good idea. I thought some of you might like to hear that a pregnancy went well. My daughter is fine and healthy.

Thanx KM for sharing your story---that's so encouraging and baby dust to you as you try for #2. I'm still on 1000mg and I'm at week 10 today. I'll go back week 13 to assess wheather to stay on it or come off

I am on "name brand" 2x day at 1,000mg and no ill effects except losing some weight. I was put on it in October after an ectopic pregnancy and beginning either December or January to try again for #1. Hoping it works...I am 37 adn do not have time ot waste either. Good Luck to us all...
