Hypoglycemia and chances of pregnancy ?

User Profile
I have just found out from my acupuncturist with help of a glucose meter that the metformin(treatment for PCOS)I have been taking has been giving me hypoglycemia. I believe I have had this for the last 1.5 years, and think my body is tolerant. I have also stopped the meds, have great blood sugar, and lost 10 lbs. I had a fertility treatment of 1200 units of FSH and 10,000 units of hcg NOV '08. No reponse but a period(which is good because I do not have them at all). If I had hypoglycemia hypothetically for the last 2 years due to Metformin, will that also decrease the chances of pregnancy?

No medical evidence from independent medical studies can be found that hypoglycemia can affect the chances for conceiving. However, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is an endocrine disorder that might be related to anovulation cycles that would make conceiving impossible.
