1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably

A little controversial but most recommend women stay on glucophage (metformin) who conceive on glucophage (metformin).

If you are not diabetic, you do not derive any benefit from the medication for your pregnancy and you can stop the glucophage. If you develop Gestational Diabetes you could be treated with the glucophage then.

I recommend staying on glucophage, we believe it may decrease the incidence of gestational diabetes, can decrease androgens, makes insulin more efficient. But it is contoversal. Your OB should guide u on benefits and risks
