Hopefully your dr is doing a blood hcg test just to make sure that you aren't pregnant already since you have been off BCP for awhile. With the metformin, many women have gotten pregnant just by taking this and timing intercourse. I was extensively warned about using alternative birth control if I didn't want to get pregnant. Unfortunately the met didn't work that way for me. So it may or may not happen. If you are very concerned about adding another child to your family then I would take extra precautions but if you are open to it if it happens then I wouldn't.
I haven't started taking it yet. Dr wanted to get all my lab results before I started. I just go that back yesterday. Hubby and I don't get to be intimate very often but last week well...I told him we should use something he didn't care. It was so hard for me to get pregnant when we wanted that I don't think I would be, but I just want to make sure before taking the Met.

shouldn;t get preg, shakes head, one of the good things about met is that it can help one ovulate (because it helps th ebody use glucose better, which can effect the bodies ability to release eggs) which means that you can have a better chance of getting preggers - its one of the reasons my own endro made sure that I understood the possible issue that could result in taking it and to make sure I took extra protection if I wonted to make sure it didnt happen.
I am ususally on Birth control pills to regulate my cycles. In April I forgto to get my prescription and decided I would wait and see how long it would take for me to get a period. Well I still haven't. My hubby and I are not trying to have anymore children. I went to an internist recently and he gave me a script for Metformin. Anyways, my question is if I have unprotected sex, when would be a good time to take a pregnancy test? I always had to take clomid or other treatments with my two children, but I don't know when I shoudl be expecting TOM at all. Would a week and a half be logn enough for a test to show? It is not the end of the world if I am. The new dr said I should not get pregnant taking metformin. Just curious. Sorry for rambling.
