EMMA I to have been put on metformin & clomid to help me get pregnant I also have pcos. How did you loose so much weight on metformin and how long did it take I've been told to go on a low carb diet no pasta, rice,potatoes or bread I've been told but I'm finding it very hard. I'm on 100mg at moment need to get to 150mg please respond.....

Please don't be negative, I have a beautiful 6 yr old daughter that came totally out of the blue. Being told that If I ever wanted children I would need to under go care with a gyno for at least 12 months and even then the chance of falling was slim, yet I was only off the pill for less then 8 month and in a new relationship and concieved on the first try. And I have a friend for whom it happened in 3 months....don't give up, it will happen. I realise every case is different but i am trying again so I hope this inspires you...xxx.

I was told I had pos 1 year ago. At that time I was given clomid because my progestrone on the 21st day after my period was 1.7. Anyone that knows can tell you it has to be at least 12 to get pregnant. Anything higher is better. After 1 year of being on different levels of Clomid I had a progesterone level of 14.7 on the 23rd day. It was probably in the 15's on the 21st day, but I couldn't test then. I highly recommend it. It is the only thing along with my Metformin that has worked.
