I take metformin twice a day 1500 mg. I have been for about a year now. I did not get pregnant but I did not realize that I was supposed to. I know that it helps with the PCOS. I just finished my first month of clomis 50 mg days 3-7 and on day 21 I had blood work done that showed that I did ovulate. Doc told me to wait another week ot two to see if AF comes and then she will test for pregnancy. I'll keep you posted.

I'm taking metformin twice a day too. I makes my hear beat fast. Does anyone feel the same?

I have been on metformin for almost 3 months. I am up to 1700 mg/day and just began clomid 50. I am on cd10 so I am hoping to at least find out I ovulate. We have been ttc for almost 1 yr now and had no luck with clomid before metformin was introduced. I am willing to try anything to get pregnant so taking these meds was an easy decision for me.

I took 50mg clomid for 5 mo. with no ovulation. 1500mg metformin everyday and 100mg clomid for 5 dys got me pg. Now I'm trying again and I just ovulated. This time my doc added 2mg estrogen for 4 days. Good Luck!


Drew - June 3

Shen, I noticed that too, and I also found that I got quite nauseated. Its getting better though. I'm up to 1700mg/day. I also started Clomid 100mg at the same time, now I'm just waiting to see if af shows up. Good luck to all!

I have just begun taking metformin. I have been off the pill for 9 months. I had one period two months ago and this month I have been spotting or bleeding for 21 days so far. I had an ultrasound that had cyst formations indicative of PCOS but no other major symptoms-- sugar is ok, hormone levels, etc. My dr. is still trying me on metformin. Has anyone heard of this? Do you all have insulin resistance?


Drew - June 18

Hi Kris, I am insulin reststant, and my blood sugars are pretty good. Insulin resistance is totally different than diabetes. The Metformin should help though, I have been on it since the begining of May, and I actually got af right around the time I was supposed to. Hopefully it works as well for you!

I have pcos and have been taking metformin for about 4 years... 1500 mg/day. I do not have any side effects. I started taking 50 mg clomid from day 5-9 in March - April 16 was the 1st day of my last period - I am 10 weeks pregnant... After trying for so long it's hard to believe... Oh, I had no side effects from the clomid either.


Jacqui - July 11

I've just started metformin 1500mg and clomid 50mg days 2-6. Not many side effects - more from the metformin than the clomid. I'm on CD 11 and have a blood test tomorrow to check if I will ovulate or not. Apparently on average clomid is taken from day 3 or from day 5 and the earlier you take it the high chance of success??? Has anyone else heard about this?


christina - July 11

i have an appointment tomorrow, i have tried everything except clomid, and that is what my dr. is suggesting, i am petrified of side affects, as i work very far from my house and dont wanna be throwing up or dizzy, my friend told that happened to her and i am scared, i dont handle medicines well, any suggestions, input will be great baby dust to all.


Khristy - July 11

I am diabetic type 2 and have PCOS and my doctor put me on Metformin 2000mg. a day in June. I had a normal 28 day cycle this past month and now I'm am taking clomid 50 mg days (3-7). for this cycle. Met. makes me sick when I eat certain foods and causes me to have bad cramps while having a bowel movement , but other then that I have no problems with it. I have still learning what foods cause the upsets. We have been ttc for 4 years now but we just found out I have pcos.
I have always had irregular cycles.
