so ive started metformin on the 15th of Nov and it's now the 1st of December, no AF yet but ive been having EWCM for 5 days now, and today my opk result was positive, so i probably am gonna ovulate soon or have ovulated already.. Crossing my fingers that the little swimmers wud last for a few days and if not atleast i know that the metformin is working Trying for a baby can be an overwhelming experience with lots of uncertainty and unanswered questions. Come to a free Sydney event to learn about common fertility concerns, myths around pregnancy and how to increase your chances of having a baby. Metformin is an insulin-sensitizing drug primarily used to treat diabetes, but it can also be used for fertility. Women with PCOS may benefit from taking metformin alone, along with Clomid, or even during IVF treatment. Exactly how metformin improves fertility is unclear. While metformin may be used for the treatment of infertility, it is not a fertility drug. In fact, using it to treat infertility is considered an off-label use. (In other words, pregnancy achievement is not the original intended purpose of this drug.) What is this medication? To understand what metformin does, you first need to know what insulin resistance is. Insulin resistance is when the body's cells stop reacting to normal levels of insulin. As a result, the body thinks that there is not enough insulin in the system. This triggers the production of more insulin than your body needs.
Be better described as ‘lean PCOS’ although I’m not sure how much of a thing that is really. First time in my life I have ever been described as lean that’s for sure! But I have got my weight generally under control after a lifetime of it being well out of control. Currently weighing in at 80kg (176lbs) but I’m 5”10 so pretty close to my ‘ideal’ weight. ANYWAY, after TTC for ages and avoiding a diagnosis because I just ‘didn’t want anything to be wrong’ (avoidance logic! ), I have now been on metformin for 1.5 cycles (about 2-3 months). My cycles have gone from 40 consistently before going on metformin to 39 after 2 weeks taking it, and now FF is estimating this cycle (based on OPK and ovulation) for it to be all the way down to 35! I’m officially in the normal range for cycles, for the first time ever in my entire life. Hello ladies I recently was placed on Metformin 1500 mg a day. This is only day two of me taking them and I have already started my cycle, which is a miracle to me! With my first, I started a period in about 48 hours, and was pregnant in about 3 cycles. I am at the 6 month mark of ttc and wanted to see if any of you had conceived while taking metformin and how long did it take? With my second, it took longer to start a period but I was pregnant on my second cycle. Im beginning to feel down that I haven't gotten my Bfp so i wanted to hear you alls success stories! The third time around, the period and conception both took longer, but still worked! I charted for the last six months of my last conception, and I had two annovulatory cycles but the one coming off the last no- O i am also on day three of taking metformin. The 1500/ day was making me really sick so i have been taking two a day trying to ease into it a little. I just got some ovvulation tests so i can start to see what is going on. I am optimistically excited and hoping for the best.
