dondons - January 21

Hey, I have been on metformin for 4 years aswell as other meds for LOCAH (similar to PCOS). I went off the pill two months ago and got pregnant before my first period!! unfortunately I had a miscarriage so I am now waiting for my period to come so we can start TTC. When I was pregnant I also got a stomache bug and didn take metformin for four days. i had my miscarriage during this time. Anyone had anything similar?

dondons, did u take metformin for 4 years and nothing and when you went off of it u got pregnant is that what u said? i am just curious cause i was on it for 3 months and nothing. so i went off of it 1 day to see if i get pregnant.

I think what she meant is that when she stoped taking birth control pill she got pregnant not the metformin at least thats what I think..I also got pregnant once after stoping bcp but at that time I wasn't on metformin yet and I had a miscarriage also,but my 2nd pregnancy went perfect and I took the metformin all the way and I am a firm believer that metformin reduces the risk of miscarriage....

We took metformin along with the "trigger shot" on cycle day 12 and conceived on the second cycle. We were blessed to have a baby boy pn 1/30/07. Good luck!

Has anyone been having extreme nausea from the metformin? Or does it make you not want to eat?

Hi. I've been on metformin for a month now. Currently taking 1700mg a day. Lately my stomach has been gurgling(sorry, best way i can put it) I have been nauseated a few times. Its usually when I wake up. Dont really know if its the metformin or the possibilty that i could be pregnant. Im due to take a hpt in a few days so we'll see. I also have diarreha a lot. Hoping that will go away soon.

I have been on met for about a month..only 1000mg. I am not insulin resistant however I have PCOS and my cycles are very irregular. I am combining that with a B vit complex and fertile aid. I got my af on Friday after only a 53 day cycle..for me that is a complete walk in the park as my last cycle was 6 months long! It did make me sick for about a week and a half of first taking it. If I ate anything it was VERY low in carbs and I found that protein did WONDERS as far as helping me with the sickness! I have also been taking my dosage at night and that seems to help me lots!

I am 26 years old. Diagnosed with PCOS a couple years back. In the beginning I had always thought that it was my husbands problem. However, after several testings, it turned out to be me. Did a few cycles of chlomid and metformin (failed), 1 IUI (failed + hospitalization for OHSS), 1st IVF cycle (failed + hospitalization for OHSS), FET (failed)... Knowing that treatment doesn't get any cheaper. My husband and I have been continuing to stay positive. And believe that with the help of METFORMIN and weightloss, someday we will also get the chance to carry out a few pregnancies to term. I have just restarted myself on metformin starting on the first day of my period. Hopefully things will work out. I am praying for you all and much blessings to you! Faith and Hope is all you need. Don't give up!

I started Metformin about a month ago for PCOS along with 100mg Clomid. I have heard a lot of success stories with just metformin, but my dr. said both combined will increase my chances since I've been trying 5 yrs.
