Metformine Questions

By June 17, 2012 - 3:43pm

Hello I was put on 2000 mg of metformine and I was wondering how long it could take for that to help me ovulate. I have PCOS and my Dr. wants to try this before trying other options. I am just wondering if you can get pregnant on this medication or if I will need to add medication with it?

Hi PCOS baby

Thanks for your post and I am sorry it has been some time.

There have been opposing results from various studies - some saying it doesn't work at all, others saying it has helped with ovulation. But since we only ovulate for 24 hours per month, this medication may need months to produce any results.

Some women take Clomid to help with ovulation - have you discussed this with your doctor?
