Hey everyone! My husband and I have been TTC for about a year now. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 20. I went to the Dr. today and was prescribed Provera (for 5 days) and Metformin (500mg). I just wanted to know if anyone has had any luck with Metformin and how quickly did it work?!? I don't think I can stand to wait another month. I would really appreciate any feedback asap! Thanks so much!View Thread
Thanks everyone for all the responses...I am really counting on Metformin to work, but if after 4 months and no baby then I will definitely be taking Clomid! I keep praying that Metformin will work and who knows maybe this cycle will be the one!!! I would love for it to happen before Christmas!!! It would be the best gift I could ever receive! Has anyone been having side effects with the Metformin...I have the most horrible cramps and some major bowel movements lolView Thread
Thanks KMcEntire! My Dr. prescribed me one 500mg pill a day for 5 days then I need to take two a day for 5 days...Then it goes to three for another 5 days...THEN four a day...So basically she wants me to take 2000mg a day, but I just started the pill yesterday and I am having horrible stomach pain, cramps, nausea, and diarrhea!!! So I'm just a little scared to be getting to 4 pills a day...Hopefully my body will respond well! But I can handle it because if it brings me the wonderful gift a baby then I'll tough it out! I go Monday to get tested for diabetes which I am completely nervous about...I've been told that I am pre diabetic. How will this affect my chances if I am? My Dr. also told me that if this didn't work after 4 months that they would start me on Clomid... Thanks again...I really love that there are women here that know what I am going through and are here to help.View Thread
