Default Does anyone know if you can get pregnant on Metformin alone?

I have been wondering if you can get pregnant with Metformin alone? Has anyone had this experience? If so, how long did it take? What was your dosage?

I would search the old fourms to see the answer to this question in the past. Good luck with your TTC Journey.

it's definitely possible! i believe there are some ladies on this forum who did get pg with met alone. for some, just straightening out your cycle with met is all it takes. good luck!

With and diet and can be done. That worked for me. Eat the right food - loose the weight, get regular cycles, and then it can happen.

A woman who teaches with my mom had to go through IUI to get pregnant with her first daughter. She wanted to conceive a second child and was diagnosed with PCOS, went to an RE, and conceived after three months on Met alone. Her baby's due this fall. Good luck and baby dust!

It is definitely possible! I got pregnant on Metformin alone (as far as prescriptions go, I was taking some herbal supplements too) I was on it for about 6 weeks when I got pregnant so hopefully it will work for you too! It just depends on the person and everyone is different

I was on Metformin for about a month or so before I got pregnant, but I also was on a good diet and exersice routine, I lost 40lbs before I got pregnant. So It is possible

All three times I have had successful pregnancies I have only been on Metformin alone. It took almost a year on it the first time and getting up to 2000 mgs but it did work for me. I was on it about 5 months at 2000 mgs when I got pregnant the first time. I have had to be on 2000 mgs each time though.

Good luck to you!
