Have Any Of You Had Success Stories Getting Pregnant On Metformin?

Have Any Of You Had Success Stories Getting Pregnant On Metformin?

I seem to be insulin resistant PCOS. My friends all tell me Metformin does not work at all. Should I even bother with it or should I ask my doctor for a different medication?

I was diagnosed with PCOS and started taking Metformin. So happy ❤️ I found * MET24PREG * 👍 in Google and got Metformin a way cheaper. At first I was taking 500mg daily, then 1000, then 1500. I lost 30 lbs in 4 months. We had been trying to get pregnant, so I was elated when I took at pregnancy test and it was positive! I’m now 37 wks + and having a baby boy! I feel wonderful.

My Dr started me on metformin about 2 1/2 months ago and at the beginning it didn’t agree with me. It made my stomach really upset, but I pushed through and now it’s fine side effects wise. But I still haven’t had a period. So, I’m unsure. I’m going to give it awhile long but it doesn’t seem to be doing much. I think it really just depends on the person.
