My husband and I have been ttc for abut two years, and we have finally been put on clomid and metform. Has anyone had this combination work for them? I'm getting mixed messages online, if this doesn't work what are the next steps?

  • I did metformin and clomid, then they added actos as well. I didn't get pregnant until we used an injectable and did insemination.

    I would only use the clomid under the care of a fertility specialist, personally, having done it with both a regular OB and a specialist. As inconvenient as it was, the close monitoring was what helped us diagnose me - I have PCOS - but already had 2 kids.

    Remember, everyone's body is different and reacts in it's own way. Just because metformin alone didn't help me doesn't mean it won't help you.

  • I was on Metformin alone for a while then they added Clmid to the mix and I used it ONE cycle and got pregnant. I now have 3 year old twins!!! I wish you the best of luck!!
