    Hi ladies!

    I've been on metformin for 6 months, ttc for 18months. Seeing gyno in October and he's mentioned other meds if I'm not preg by then. So I am wondering what meds you are on and what you started on etc and what the meds are supposed to do.

    Thanks!

    I have been on metformin on and off for 10 years now. I took clomid which is supposed to help grow a mature egg but it didn't work for me.

    This cycle I went on Femara which grew two mature follicles and then my doc gave me an HCG (pregnancy hormone) injection to force ovulation. So here's hoping!

    I am also on a medication called Metanx which is a super B vitamin/ folic acid pill.

    Ive been on Metformin for a year now (ttc for 21 months). Ive had 7 months of Clomid (ovulated on 6 of them but still no BFP), and I had one IUI cycle with injectables (Menopur and Pregnyl).

    Next for us is 2 more IUI cycles and then onto IVF
