  • I have PCOS and have two children. I also took metformin(glucaphage) with each. Not only did I take metformin, but also clomid. I had success and your friend can too!

  • I FOUND OUT ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO THAT I HAD PCOS. MY DD IS NOW 3 AND WE HAVE BEEN TTC FOR ABOUT 21 MONTHS NOW. I AM TAKING 2000MG OF METFORMIN AND MY DH IS GOING IN FOR TESTING ON MONDAY! I KNOW THAT THERE ARE WAYS FOR THIS TO HAPPEN, JUST TELL HER TO KEEP HER HEAD UP AND THINK POSITIVE! I UNDERSTAND HOW SHE FEELS!
