    I have started taking metformin 500 mg daily as my Insulin level after 2 hr glucose was at 70. I had 2 miscarriages before and doctor thinks that metformin may help. I have cycles which range from 35 to 40 days and doc says that metformin helps regulate cycles also.
    I have been taken metformin for past 10 days now.
    How long cycles would it take to see the effect of metformin in regulating the cycles?

    :hi:

    Sorry for your losses :hugs:

    I've have PCOS and have been put on Metformin also, been on it for 2 weeks today. I started on 500mg once a day, then up to 2, today I start 3 x 500mg. I've had 2 MMC this year and the gynae thinks that my PCOS and high testosterone is the cause, so I'm hoping this helps.

    My cycles range from 30-50 days, this month I have started to use a CBFM and today i got a high on CD 10, so I'm hoping that's a good sign. I've heard stories of people whose cycles have regulated really quickly - so fingers crossed for us both.
