I am so confused i have pcos and was told to take metformin to get my cycle going which never really worked for me for with the help of clomid got pregnant. I am 13w now and my endocrinologist says to take if for 20weeks, on my 1st visit at 7weeks the NP said take it throughout the whole pregnancy. on my last visit at 12weeks my ob says stop around 16weeks. I mean seriously i have no clue who to follow. Any advice ...
I am currently pregnant, but not on metformin. my doctor and i did talk about going on it while I was trying to get pregnant and they said if i did get pregnant while on it, it is best to stay on till between 16-20 weeks, but it does sound like it is very subjective by Dr, maybe do a little research on your own!
