Metformin Advice


Hello everyone,

I'm new here and wanted to connect with others who are TTC. I lost my Charity through tubal pregnancy in 2010. I only have one tube now. My cycles have always been irregular. AF shows up 4-5 times for year for 25-30 days each time. Yes, you read it right.

The tubal pregnancy was conceived naturally. I think I was attempting to chart but my temperature was all over the place. My CM constantly changed.

So I finally spoke to my doctor about it and she wanted me to try provera to start my period and then Clomid on days 5-9. When she came back in with my prescriptions, she included one for Metformin explaining that its for Diabetes but has been helpful for people who are TTC. I am not diabetic. I began taking the Metformin immediately but had to schedule the provera and Clomid to attempt to match it to hubby's schedule because he travels for work and is only home 2 times per month for 3 days each.

Today is CD10 so I am done with Clomid and simply waiting to ovulate. I read some reviews on Metformin and how some miscarry. I still want to take Metformin to help conceive but should I stop taking it temporarily and rely on the Clomid? Again, this is my FIRST try with Medical help, the 1st step in my process.

Hi,

My FS said he will keep me on the Metformin through out the 1st trimester, should I fall pregnant, as it gives you a better chance of not miscarrying.

Hope this helps....

Ditto on above, my fertility docs said to remain on it for first trimester, decreases chance of miscarriage considerably as keeps you stable until fetus is strong enough.
