The medicines you’ve taken have helped you to get pregnant and probably won't harm the embryo. You may continue taking metformin and cyclogest (progesterone derivatives) to prevent miscarriage. Women with poly-cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) beside sterility, also have an increased risk for miscarriage. An evaluation of the early pregnancy can be done by measuring the level of human chorion-gonadotropin (HCG) in your body. HCG-levels should double once every 2 days. Regular ultrasound-scans are also necessary for monitoring the health of your child.


You can consult your obstetrician for an expert opinion and follow up.
