  • It helps clear up polycystic ovaries syndrome so you can ovulate and the egg can be fertilized

  • Yes, you can get pregnant. PCOS is partly due to certain hormones being low. The Metformin is a diabetic drug that helps the hormone level regulate. Some women get pregnant on Metformin alone and some also need a fertility drug (usually Clomid). The Metformin does mess with your tummy, but will will level out over time. Stay close to a bathroom for awhile when you take it and make sure you take it with a small meal or snack. PM me if you need to, I am on Metformin for PCOS also.

  • You need a new doctor. Your doctor should have taken the time to explain the issue, treatment options (included alternative/nutritional options), benefits and side effects of the medication.

  • I have PCOS and have 3 children, two of which were conceived with no help at all. For the 3rd I had to take metformin and actos and fertility drugs (I was 10 yrs older than you are now.) Many women have good luck with just the metformin or metformin and clomid. Your doctor should have take more time to explain everything to you.
