Can i take other fertility helpers with my metformin and Clomid (clomiphene) to help get pregnant with pcos?
Maybe: Fertility helpers can be: fertility tests not done, surgery for other problems, adding IUI in some cases. If the clomid/metformin are causing you to ovulate then time may work. Later try coh/iui or ivf. Other otc supplements may be helpful full or harmful. Recently, coq-10 and dhea have been popular but all these should be used with doc management. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Trying to get pregnant with pcos. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for two years now and have gone through treatments from metformin to clomid (clomiphene). Is there anything else i can do?
IUI or IVF: Based on your age you should consider a more aggressive approach to fertility treatment since Clomid (clomiphene) alone failed to lead to conception. A limited number of intrauterine insemination (iui) cycles may be an option. However, in vitro fertilization (ivf) may be a better option. ...Read more

I have been without my metformin for over a week now. I take 2000mg a day for pcos. I am pregnant, can this hurt my baby? I will get it in 2 days.
No: Metformin helps women with pcos achieve pregnancy by making your ovaries function more efficiently. It does this by making your Insulin function better. Some physicians stop metformin once pregnancy is achieved. Others continue it, so that you continue to get the benefits of improving your Insulin function. See your OB asap and follow his or her advice in regards to metformin. Don't panic. ...Read more
Unusual: If your cycles are quite regular and average 28 to 30 days, you would ovulate later than 2 days after a normal period ends. It would be more like 5to7 days or more after your period ends and the egg only lasts one day. However these are just guidelines for women with very regular and predictable periods. Your obgyn is better qualified to answer your question though. ...Read more
I was told that i have polycystic ovaries today and i take 500 mg metformin for prediabetes. Can i still get pregnant?
Prediabetes: I never understand "prediabetes". Either you have diabetes or you do not. Always make sure that you are not taking too much food and/or not exercising enough. I doubt you need metformin and there is no apparent reason to think you will not have a pregnancy and thoroughly enjoy your children. ...Read more
