Prescribed Metformin today...

We've been TTC for 2 1/2 years now and I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere. Had my appointment this morning and was prescribed metformin so when I got home I started researching it. It seems like a lot of what I'm seeing is metformin in combination with Clomid. Is this the norm?

Re: Prescribed Metformin today...

  • I was diagnosed as insulin resistant and endo prescribed Met 2000mg. I had heard it helps regulate you and makes better quality eggs. Looking back I feel like I waited to long to add the clomid. After 9 months I added 50 mg of Clomid= no O. The next month it was increased to 100 mg, then I added a trigger shot and IUI, this is when I got the BFP.

    Gradually increase your Metformin dose otherwise you might stop taking it. You'll experience "bathroom issues" and you can't drink alcholol either. Good luck!

  • Thank you! I'm starting with 500mg for a week then up to 1000mg a day for another week then I have another appointment to see how it's going.

     Thanks again!

  • Have been on Met for 10 months. Have PCOS and IR. Met jumped started ovulation and my last 2 periods have been about 32 days apart! I just took my Met dose down from 2000 to 1500 because I was tired of the on again off again nausea. Waiting to see if that will change the progress I had with my period. Still try to eat better and exercise more. Ran my first 5k a couple of weeks ago! Have lost 18lbs in 10 months. It's progress but it's frustrating- I wish it were faster. Going to Endro Dr. next month for next steps. Good luck to you all! Feel free to email me if you wanna chat: [email protected]

    Did it take 8 months before they started to become regular?

  • metformin alone was enough for me...my doc had me start metformin and I was going to be on that for 6 months before going to clomid if needed. But metformin got me to ovulate once on my own after a couple months, and well DD was the result of that.
