is metaformin safe to take if you are pregnant?

I am supposed to be taking it to help control my PCOS and blood sugar levels and I am not diabetic... but I am trying to concieve and wanted to know that if I am pregnant will it hurt the baby?

  • A girl in the group I'm in (we're both pregnant) is taking it for the same reason and HAS to keep on it religiously or she will probably lose the baby. Talk to you OB just to make sure that you should stay on it, but she can't keep a pregnancy without it.

  • I also have pcos. I was told to stop taking it the moment I found out I was pg. But I have seen other moms take it to help control their sugars while pg. So I have no clue.
