Hello ladies! I have pcos, ttc for a year and just finished a round of provera to induce a period. Will be starting first round of clomid 50mg starting day 3-7. I have been on metformin for 3 months and continue to take it. I am suppose to use prometrium starting 2 days after ovulation. What are some success stories about using this medicine combination??? Does it work better than clomid alone?? How many cycles did it take and at what doseage??

I tried it all sorry I'm no help my bfp came when I stopped ttc after 4 years :)

However I know for me I hated metformin but if you have lasted this long then you must not have gotten the horrid side effects then so good for you

For me I ate right and made a lifestyle change cause I wanted my baby

I worked out everyday lost 30lbs and got my baby on the way now 19 weeks 3 days :)))

i did clomid alone with no sucess, however i have pcos with no insulin resistance so my doctor doesnt feel metformin is needed however i beg to differ, but if femara doesnt work for us after a few tries we are just going to see a specialist then. which i will defiantly be a little more pushy an frank about our needs, an push metformin

i have heard success stories from women who only used one or the other not together so i would think the combo would work even better 

good luck

My DD is a clomid and metformin baby. I took metformin for 3 months (500mg). On the second month, I added 50 mg of clomid. No luck, 3rd month added clomid with metformin days 3-7 and it worked. Of course I had really low progesterone, so I had to be on progesterone until 14 weeks, but it was worth it. Hang in there sweetie! Sending you baby dust!

I've been on metformin for almost 4 months now at 1000 mg and I'm starting clomid 50mg tonight!!!! Wish me luck!!! I must have low progesterone because she gave me prometrium to start 2 days after ovulation. Hope it all works out!!! We really would like a baby by our next beats or anniversary and that will happen if it works this round or the next. Clomid starts tonight!

I have been on Metformin for a year + and I did my first round of clomid this cycle, just like you.  I am doing everything you are doing and now I am waiting for 12/3 to see if my IUI was a success!

I finished first round of clomid Saturday, haven't realized any side effects so it kind of makes me worried this round won't be the round but I'm trying to stay positive and I start testing for ovulation tomorrow...hopefully it works!!

 I did many many rounds of clomid when TTC my second and never once ovulated. It was 6 mns after stopping Clomid I finally ovulated and conceived. This time around my Dr started me on Metformin and then clomid. And I ovulated the two cycles I was on it. Cd 14 on the first round of 50 mg and cd 20 on the second round of 50mg. I unfortunately didn't conceive. But I was happy I ovulated! Good Luck

Hi, I also have PCOS and have now for 10 months and I have taken metformin since I was diagnosed. I have not taken any of the ther meds yet But I would also ike to know if they work. My fiance and I have been TTC since Aug of last year. I would probably stay on the metformin for a bit longer. Idk if 3 months is very long for all your hormones to come back to normal.. I also took the Provera tho when I first got diagnosed and it indeed worked.  I think I may ask the Dr about putting me on Clomid tho, Is there any negative things about it?Jw                 I wish u the best of luck!

Sorry, I can't help with stories... I have only taken Clomid during IUI cycles and all have been unsuccessful. Best wishes for success to you!
