Better chance: Metformin use increases your chance of pregnancy, but not 100%--not even close. We don't have a good way of predicting acurately your chance of getting pregnant, but it helps. Good luck to you... ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

How long it may take to get pregnant with pcos i m at metformin for 4 months?

Pregnancy: Is not guaranteed just because you're on metformin. Make sure you're on the most effective dose of 2, 000 mg/day. Usually menses return to normal in several months, and fertility follows soon after, but not in all women. Check w/your doctor for further therapy if needed. ...Read more

Can i take other fertility helpers with my metformin and Clomid (clomiphene) to help get pregnant with pcos?

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 more

Hello,

Pcos pregnancy: hello ~ I am going to be wise and duck that question because you have asked an impossibly hard question with impossibly little time to achieve anything like a satisfactory answer. I suggest you seeing your OB GYN and redirecting that question to him/her. You might consider booking a double appointment for THAT AS WELL. MANY THANKS ...Read more

Metformin in PCOS: should increase the likelihood of pregnancy. It should also help to normalize your metabolism, regular your period, and promote weight loss. Some women with PCOS do become pregnant within a short period after beginning to take Metformin. If you are overweight, you will have a much healthier pregnancy, if you loss weight prior to conception. If you are trying to conceive take Folic Acid daily. ...Read more

I have pcos and I'm not ovulating.. I have started taking 500mg metformin 2 times a day for a week now.. Is there a chance for me to get pregnant?

Yes: If you start ovulating with this dose, you could get pregnant but it may take a higher dose and/or the addition of clomid (clomiphene). Weight loss is easier on metformin and it also can help you start ovulating. Exercise and a diabetic diet help. Hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Doing right: You are doing all the right things. Hopefully, you doctor is adjusting your meteor min doseage. There are some new studies showing that letrazole is helpful for infertility in PCOS.

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.

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

Is it possible to get pregnant 2 days after your period ends ? On metformin for pcos

Is it possible to get pregnant 2 days after your period ends ? On metformin for pcos

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

Hi

PCOS: Hi. PCOS is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning since there is no specific, definitive test for it, other conditions (that are treated differently) may need to be excluded before PCOS is the settled upon diagnosis. These most commonly are congenital adrenal hyperplasia and Cushing's syndrome. The most common treatments for PCOS are metformin, BCPs, and spironolactone, either alone or in combination ...Read more
