Anyone taking Metformin?

Postby Kcc_summers » Fri Feb 22, 2013 9:03 am

My husband and I have been TTC baby #2 since May 2012. We had absolutely no problems getting pregnant the first time around. I actually think we conceived our first time. My doctor doesn't think there's anything wrong with me, but my periods had been a little off. She prescribed me 500mg of Metformin. I've been taking it for almost 3 weeks. I just recently started feeling nauseous, fatigued, crampy, and some breast sensitivity. I'm not sure if these are side effects of the Metformin or if they are pregnancy symptoms. Would side effects show up immediately or would it take a few weeks to develop? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a BFP, but won't know for another week or so.

I got a :bfp: confirmed by doctor as well and then got my period 5 days later. Not sure what happened..if it was a chemical pregnancy or a freak false positive??? On to the next month and contemplating starting Clomid on my next cycle.

Kcc-summers-
I have been taking metformin since ..... I wanna day February/early march. My first month taking it I got breast pain/soreness and heavy fuller for the tww. Thought this was my month since I never have had sore bb's before ever! Bfn. Metformin works to lower androgen levels in the body (hormones) that can help you get pregnant. I took the meds in march and April. At my cd 14 ultrasound in April I had no cysts and two great looking follicles! Bfn.
Going in for lap next week!
Good luck with metformin, keep taking it'!!

I also take metformin 500mg twice a day for the past 6 mos. I take it for borderline insulin resistance. I noticed nausea the first 7-10 days...but after that your body should adjust to it and no more side effects.8 didn't get sore bb's so that sounds like pg symptoms to me!
