I am 22 and was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, they also think i have pcos and that i have a small chance of getting pregnant which i have been trying for 6 months, after i got off birthcontrol i didnt have periods but now i have had 3 regular periods and my blood sugar has maintained normal. I have also lost 40 lbs and am continuing an exercise routine and have dramtically changed how much and what i eat. I take Metformin 1000 mg 2x a day. I was wondering if my chances of getting pregnant have gone up or what i should expect. They wont discuss pregnancy with me because i have no insurance so they say they cant do much about that. Please help
Welcome to the ehealthforum. Many thanks for posting.
Iâll be glad to help you. Just like diabetes improves with weight loss and with the use of metformin, similarly, the chances of getting pregnant improve significantly with the use of metformin and weight loss in PCOS as the menstrual cycles return to normal and the ovulation takes place.
Hence, your chances of getting pregnant do increase but to what extent is a bit difficult to comment. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
