Hi, I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), my doctor suggested me to take Glucophage as part of infertility therapy. Does Glucophage work to get pregnant?

PCOS is characterized by infrequent menstrual periods or no menstrual periods; infertility or inability to get pregnant because of not ovulating; increased growth of hair on the face, chest, stomach; acne, oily skin, or dandruff. Glucophage is an oral antidiabetic medication used to treat type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes. Generic name is metformin. In women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), glucophage can be used to regulate the way insulin decreases testosterone production. Essential cause of infertility in PCOS is lack of ovulation, due to high level of testosterone. Glucophage can be taken with fertility medications to promote ovulation. When you get pregnant, you should stop taking Glucophage.

I have done some extensive research on use if glucophage and it being used for fertility medicine, pcos, type 2 diabetes, and for maintaining pregnancy. The user above me stated that if you were to get pg using glucophage that you should stop taking it. This is incorret, if you were to consut your Dr. he would tell you to continue taking until your 12th week of pregnancy to help ensure that you do not have a miscarriage. If you have pcos you are more likely to have mc and should really consult your dr about all of this when you do get pregnant

I can honestly say that yes glucophage works to get pregnant. I never ever have periods even when the doctor put me on clomid I never had periods. It wasn't until she put me on glucophage and clomid that two weeks late I got pregnant. I don't know if the glucophage itself would work. It worked for me. Also, if you get pregnant while on glucophage it is recommended that you stay on it until you are done with the first trimester to decrease the chance of miscarriage. There haven't been enough studies done to prove if this is necessary or not, but I wasn't willing to take the chances. Good luck!

I would like to respond about the use of glucophage. My husband and I had a tubal pregnancy back in November 2001. I stopped having a menstrual cycle for years. I met with an ob doctor who put my on birth control to get regulated again. However, even after I stopped taking my birth control, I was not getting pregnant. This was after 3 years of trying. We found that my estrogen levels were too low. He put me on glucophage to bring my estrogen levels up. I attest to this as this is how I got pregnant with my 2 kids. I quit taking my birth control, started the glucophage and got pregnant within 30 days on both kids. I will say to, I quit taking the glucophage as soon as I found out I was pregnant and had no difficulty. Thanks for listening.

Hi,

I am fairly new to the "blog world" so I do not know all the acronyms that go along with the subjects; so I will put it in layman's terms!  I have been TTC (I know that one...lol!) for 4 years now.  I have been on several rounds of clomid and not too long ago began my second cycle of femera.  After taking the fermera, I had the vaginal ultra sound and found that I had two follicles, but I was not ovulating.  I tooke the ovidrel shot to initiate ovulation and my doctor also diagnosed me with PCOS the same day.  She prescribed prometrium to help build up the lining of my uterus and glucophage to begin on around day 13?? (femera was days 5-9) to help with my insulin levels...she said that the glucophage would help with the PCOS.  So, glucophage is to help maintain the levels of insulin in the body so that ovulation can take place.  It is NOT to help with starting a period (this would be prometrium (in my case).  I am now waiting to see if I am PREGNANT...please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.  This is a long and tiring journey, but I take comfort in knowing that there is hope and I am trusting GOD for my miracle...Be Blessed and stay prayerful...
