I am so sorry for your loss, that is heart breaking, kudos to you for hanging in there.

As for met, I haven't had it, but I know insulin can cause a lot of problems for O, so once that is helped it should be much much easier to get a bfp.

I eat no sugar or refined carbs which helps me ovulate well and on time, if I start eating bad foods I will have a delayed O so it def makes a difference controlling that aspect! Gl to you. xx

Hi I'm pretty new here also, got my blood test results back last week. The gyno didn't say anything about PCOS but that I am insulin resistant and my progesterone levels are low. He started me on 500mg of Metformin twice a day. So far I've been using the bathroom a lot more often and been a tad bit moodier then normal. Still waiting on AF to show up though so maybe that's what's making me moody. So sorry for your loss and congrats for being willing to get back in the game. I really hope this 1000mg of met does it for us! I just want AF to show up so I can try to see when DH and I have to LOL. Anyways if you want a friend to go through this metformin/ttc journey with you I'm always here!

Hi Im on metformin also- 500 twice a day- a few years ago I tried it but was put on an insane high dose and got very sick- A few months ago I was finally willing to try again. I have PCOS and hypo thyroid. Im on Armour for that- still trying to find the right dose though. Something is starting to work however- I usually only have AF 2-4 times a year.. last few months in a row I have had one and it's been alot to get use to! lol I got one feb 2, march 11, april 14... and now Im seeing if Im going to be late this month. Im not sure when it's due exactly- I know from an opk that I O'd around May 3rd. and I had sore BB and such with O. I usually didn't before.. I didn't know what was going on with me! The sore BB still have not gone away- with O it was all of my BB's that hurt- then it was just the nipples and they got really itchy! now the whole BB hurt again- and im getting bright blue veins across my chest and arms and a little on my side. The last two days I can smell everything. I'll be so shocked if I actually am preggers. Happy! and shocked. Today I feel totally crazy- want to yell at everyone and cry. Im just worried cause my doc thinks I had two either chem pregnancies or m/c Feb and March.. I try and look at it as my body is trying to work right for the first time in a long time. I just want to sleep all day for the last week.
I dont temp or much of anything else. A friend gave me a bunch of opk test when she got her bfp so I was using them just to see if my body was trying to O- So far no signs of AF- I have had a pulling feeling since O but no cramps and I usually cramp big time before AF.
So If I do have a sticky bean then I would say the metformin had alot to do with it. I have stomach issues, ulcers and such and the met does upset my stomach a little but defiantly gets better the more I take it. I take mine with food. Just in case this helps, Im 37 (as of March) and have an 18 yr. old son (as of April) GL to everyone!!!

the nausea and diarrhea is normal. should get better the longer you take it. Are you taking it with food? That helps me. Yesterday AF showed.. kinda.. very light bleed. Only when I wipe.. a few small dine size dots of red on the pad and today just pink/red cm.. I have no clue what my body is doing lol- going to use opk again this month..

as far as you spotting- that shouldnt be from the met. did you O? could it be IB?

hey qe 76....

sorry AF showed....i am currently on cd 16 so i would wish it was IB but i think its too soon for that....yeah i take the met with food but i am also trying to lose weight so i eat light ....

one thing i realise is that the diarrohea occurs after lunch...strange huh....haha

but i just want the met to work....if i dont get a bfp at least i want to have normal ovulated shorten cycles i want to take a wholesome treatment for my poas..
ya know...
