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...
