I have PCOS and I got pregnant while on Metformin :) So it is possible. I had been on Metformin for about 3 months (lost 20 lbs) and then we tried Clomid for three months and didn't get pregnant. I continued the metformin (the whole time) and then got pregnant about two months after I stopped the Clomid. Good luck :)

I have PCOS, before I got married in March I was taking B.C. to manage my symptoms but went off after I got married, then I was put on Prometruim (Progesterone) to induce period once every 2-3 months. I have not been very consistent with that, and as a result have not had a period since May. I don't have cycles naturally, thank you PCOS. Anyway, my doctor put me on Metformin to help me balance my insulin and to help with PCOS which I know may start a cycle. I felt sick only the 1st week or so while taking it, 1000 mg. So...

I started taking Metformin about a month ago, I think it caused me to start ovulating a few weeks ago, now 4 weeks after I have started Metformin, I can't tell if I am experiencing signs of early pregnancy or if its just PMS? These are not my typical PMS symptoms but then again, I wouldn't really know considering it changes due to all the different medicines/methods. I am tired, my breasts HURT, and I get nauseous at random times. Has anyone had this happen and it just be the start of their cycle? How long should I wait before taking a pregnancy test? I know it's still probably early, these symptoms have been going on for almost a week now. I took a cheap pregnancy test that I have had for awhile today, and it was negative? But my symptoms are still the same and I haven't started my period yet...

Any advice?

"By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised." Hebrews 11:10

"Trust in the Lord and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it." Psalm 37:3-5
