i have been on metformin for 3 years, and have pcos, i got caught pregnant last year first month after having coil removed, but sadly lost our baby at 7 weeks, we have been trying to concieve every month since as the metformin regulates your periods, my cycle is 36-38 days usually, last month i didnt ovulate as normal but ovulated 2 weeks late, and yesterday i got a bfp, and am pregnant, i cannot belive the jorney we have been through, i have used everything possible and its paid off, so i am very excited this weekend as by xmas we will finally have our much wanted baby, if you need any advice i am more then willing to give you it xxxx

I was on metformin, i too have pcos. I was able to get pregnant and my baby is 4 months old. It did take a year and a half even with metformin.

I was taking metformin for PCOS and had to use clomid to help with ovulation and I'm now 13wks preggo...so it can help...good luck!! And I hope you have a speedy recovery...

Thank you all for your lovely feed back & I am so sorry for your loss Leeshac I know how it feels to lose a little angel has I lost my little angel wen I was 30wks preg, in 2009. & I still have no joy in concieving thats why my doctor is going to put me on metformin to see if that will help me to concieve.

congrats to you Dreamia & Leeshac on you lovely news

Thankyou Retta for your post , Im so sorry for your loss . I was diagnose pcos wen i was 17yr old, but i was put on birthing control tablets wich help with my cycles , but wen i was 21yr old my doctor took me off them has i kept having bad pains bk of my calfes really bad. it took me and my partner nearly 3yrs to concieve with no help at all. then sadly we loss our little boy @ 7months. & I dont want to wait long time to concieve again has I would like ababy b4 im 35yr old has im 32yr old this June & my partner is 38yr old so my doctor suggested to me to try metformin once i have had my operation done. so fingers crossed & I hope you get your BFP wen you decide to try again all the best Emma x x
