Re: Metformin Help
Jan 6, 2009
how horrible for you. i'm not sure if i can help but there are a few things to check out.
1) with insulin resistance/PCOS your glucose can be normal but your insulin can still be high - this is what the metformin treats best and the high insulin levels can be what's keeping your hormones out of whack and stopping conception
2) another condition to check out that is sometimes associated with PCOS is the antiphospholipid syndrome, it can be associated with the estrogen problems in PCOS and contributes to miscarriage risk and can be diagnosed (relatively confidently) with a blood test.
3) there is another medication, clomid, that can be used to induce ovulation and lots of women with PCOS take that + metformin while trying to get pregnant

hope this helps, D.
