  • Good for you!! I know several moms who have gotten pregnant after a couple of months on glucophage. :) It was actually an reproductive endo in our area who first pioneered using glucophage to help women get pregnant. Its such an inexpensive treatment I am glad to see more doctors getting on board with it.

  • I took it 4 times a day for 7 months, only had one period, and got pregnant with my 2nd child. I don't know for sure if the Met. had anything to do with it or not. I have been taking it for the past 2 years and am now taking clomid but no luck yet. A bit of advice though- start out slow on the Metformin to help avoid tummy troubles. Good luck! : )
