  • I was on both metformin and actos. I also have PCOS. I got pregnant on my first round of an injectable fertility drug but had a very early miscarriage (had I not been going to a fertility clinic I would have just thought it was AF.) I ended up losing a lot of weight between the medications and the depression of not being able to get pregnant.

    I got pregnant again on the 3rd round. He is a very happy and healthy 5.5 yr old.

    Clomid didn't work for me.

  • I took Metformin for 7 months before getting pregnant with my 2nd baby. I took 500mg 4 times a day. I've been taking it again for the past 2 years and I'm still not pregnant. I know some people swear by it though. I plan to continue to take it even though I'm not getting pregnant since it helps me with some of my pcos symptoms.
