Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Fertility Treatment With Metformin (glucophage)

How Metformin Is Used for Polycystic Ovaries Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common cause of anovulation and infertility in women. These women do not ovulate (release eggs) regularly and therefore have irregular menstrual periods. The ovaries have many small cysts (2-7 mm diameter) called antral follicles, giving the ovaries a characteristic "polycystic" (many cysts) appearance on ultrasound. A relatively new method of treating ovulation problems in women with polycystic ovarian disease is to use an oral medication called metformin (brand name is Glucophage). Metformin has traditionally been used as an oral drug to help control diabetes. Then, some smart doctor figured out that polycystic ovarian syndrome treatment with metformin can be very effective. If Glucophage alone does not result in ovulation and pregnancy, we often use: If the combination therapy is not effective, we can try: Metformin Use with IVF Treatment We also use Glucophage in women going through in vitro fertilization for PCOS, and for those with very high antral follicle counts - if their ovaries are "polycystic" by ultrasound.

    Hi Everyone, I was just put on Metformin to hopefully regulate my period and ovulation and get pregnant. They just diagnosed me with PCOS, but said I'm not the normal 90% of women that get PCOS. I'm not overweight, no diabetes, etc. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there that is like me and has experienced success with Metformin and getting pregnant? Thanks!

    I d like to share a very positive experience with Metformin. I was diagnosed with PCOS after very irregular periods and anovulatory cycles. I already worked out regularly and was a healthy weight. My husband and I tried for a very long time to conceive and were starting to lose hope. I started taking Metformin 1500mg per day. I found it without Rx (my friend share with me this code * METF4PREG *, you can Google it.) The first month, my cycle length was cut in half and the second month, I got pregnant! I never thought the day would come that I would see a positive pregnancy test. I continued the Metformin through my first trimester and we now have a perfect baby boy. Keep your head up and give it a try...I am so thankful that I did!

We're trying for a baby since 9 months and no luck. So all in all, On the 13th of October i had a positive test!!!! Now I am 5 w5d pregnant! It does help!!!!!! In the beginning you will have terrible side effects, my stomach was so upset especially in the first month, but it's definitely worth it!!!!!!
