Hello,

well today I was told by my gyno that I have pcos and that I have to start taking provera for 10 days a month and that if I want I can start taking metformin. If anybody else has taken these can you offer me any input about them? Such as the side effects and if you were able to conceive on them? I would appreciate it. I have been looking up metformin on the net to decide whether or not if I want to start taking it. Thanks, any input would be super:)

Metformin
Hi there!! I currently take metformin for my pcos as well as my diabetes. I notice with myself that the metformin as well as the glipizide I take for my diabetes can c ause low blood sugar as well as alittle dizziness with the higher dosages. My specialist recommended the metformin as soon as I was diagnosed with the pcos. Good luck to you!

depo and metformin
Three years later...
I have pcos and I am on metformin. Due to the cysts plus pregnancy prevention, I'm also on depo provera. I didnt know if anyone knew about metformin increasing the chances of getting pregnant..that is what I have heard anyway.
