I am almost 8wk pregnant and I have pcos. I have been taking metformin. My re told me to stop at 9 wk. Could this hurt my pregnancy?

No. Your re is right - at 9 weeks the pregnancy will be "set" for the most part and the metformin is no longer needed. In fact, staying on the metformin after 9 weeks may not be good for the baby, so stop as instructed. Having said that, a common time to "lose" a pregnancy is around 10-12 weeks. If you do, it is not because you stopped the metformin. Losses between 10-13 wks happen w/o pcos too. 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...

Switched to metformin ER in march, had period in april but missed since. Having some symptoms but have pcos. Could I be pregnant? Neg test so far.

Maybe but doubt. Pcos causes infertility and irregular and usually less bleeding because of anovulation (no eggs released).Metformin has many effects, including increasing the likelihood of getting pregnant in pcos. However if no period since april, and negative pregnancy test, this is unlikely. Most pregnancy tests including at home are very sensitive and pick up changes very early, so likely would be positive no. Read more...
Possible but... It's possible to be pregnant and still be too early for a positive pregnancy test. That said, pcos is associated with irregular periods and the metformin does not guarantee regular cycles. Metformin can cause nausea that some people associate with pregnancy but shouldn't be confused as such. Read more...
