Metformin/Clomid/Letrozole + TTC

Metformin/Clomid/Letrozole + TTC

Hi all, my doctor told me to do research on the meds listed ^^ above. I was just curious if anyone has tried any of these singularly, or combined while TTC? My husband and I are trying naturally for the next three months before meeting with my OB to develop a medical plan to help us conceive. These were the only three she mentioned. So I am open to other suggestions, but these are the primary ones I'm looking at right now.

I have used metformin before, it didn't work for me, but it does seem to work for others. I was familiar with it because my mom used it to control her diabetes, maybe it didn't work bc I'm not a diabetic. Clomid, however worked awesome for me. My OB wanted us to do a "test run" so that they could see what the potential problem was. I was having a cycle, but I wasn't ovulating. So they gave me clomid to make me ovulate and we got pregnant during the test run. You should definitely do your research and get an ovulation kit just to make sure. Wishing you the best of luck.

Metformin did not seem to help me, but my doctor still had me take it while TTC. I conceived my first after three rounds of Clomid. I had HORRIBLE side effects from the Clomid (mood swings, hot flashes, visual disturbances). I conceived my second pregnancy on Clomid, but that ended in miscarriage. After many more rounds of Clomid, but OB/GYN sent me to a specialist, she said I might have better luck with Letrozole. I had no side effects and ovulated much earlier with Letrozole. I conceived twins on my second round of Letrozole.

Thank you, Shonta! How was clomid for you? in terms of side effects? I know it's different for everyone, but its so helpful to hear peoples stories I think. I don't have diabetes either, but my doc said it does help pcos patients ovulate. But i think that depends on dosage? Thank you again! :)

I took Clomid while TTC, ovulated but never got pregnant. I take Metformin and it has seemed to help regulate my periods and that’s what we were hoping for.

I took clomid and on my second round I got pregnant, it ended up being ectopic.. Then after a year passed I tried it again, but this time I didn't get pregnant until my 6 round, and it ended up being a pregnancy of unknown location. Which in turn led me to take methotrexate to dissolve my pregnancy.. So that was 2017 now I'm at the point of finding something natural, or just praying it just happens on its own..I even had a reading (psychic) and it predicted that I would fall pregnant in 3 months from now 🤔🤔🤔
