I just went to the doctor to find out about my hormones and found that my progesterone is low. He is putting me first on glucophage and then two months later he is adding clomid. I was just wondering if there is any evidence that glucophage is successful in getting womento concieve. I trust my doctor but I would also like to see evidence that it works. :o

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Insulin resistance and obesity can lead to infertility and both of these problems can be combated by glucophage.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
