I've heard it go both ways. I also have pcos. My midwife put me on Metformin while trying to get pregnant, kept me on it during pregnancy, and is now suggesting i stay on it to help with milk supply. I have no way of knowing whether it is helping unless i stop, which i am considering at the 6 month mark when I'll hopefully begin introducing solids (planning on baby led weaning).

I don't plan on being on Metformin when we go to have our second kiddo. I don't particularly like the idea of putting chemicals into my body let alone my daughter. But I'm also too chicken to stop it since she is a fussy eater to begin with and i don't want the added stress of undersupply by stopping.

A number of possibilities could be the cause of low breast milk supply.
