So I started met the day I got my BFP but my doctor told me to keep taking it. I've lost about 8 lbs in 2 weeks but I don't know if that's from food aversion. But honestly I do think some is from the met.

Lowers insulin levels. It lowers insulin levels, helps to prevent diabetes complications, and helps people with diabetes to lose weight. Losing weight whilst taking Metformin (Glucophage) means also eating a healthy diet. Eating lots of foods that boost blood sugar levels will counteract the effects of Metformin.
