I just had my first doctor appt today. I have been pregnant 2 times before and each time before, the plan between my ob/gyn and endocrinologist was for me to stay on Met most if not all of the pregnancy. So today, I meet my doc (new doctor) and she says a study just came out that may link Metformin to miscarriages!!! Anyone know more about this? Anyone's doc confirm it? It directly contradicts all the studies I have read. I am off to search PubMed and see if I can find anything promising. I'm not sure I should just take 1 doctor's word on it before doing research myself.
I remember Marci saying a family member told her their doctor had told them the same thing... but that was the first I'd heard of it. From what I know, numerous studies HAVE been done showing reduced risk for those of us with PCOS. Maybe the new study didn't include PCOS patients only. I'd definitely do my own research on the source and size of this study before making any decisions.
How are you doing, Liz?!? Did you ever get a progesterone draw? How are you feeling? When do you get a u/s?? You and your bean are in my T&Ps always! KUP!!!
I've never heard of Met causing m/c's, in fact just the other way around! I stayed on Met for the first trimester. I was kinda nervous to get off of it, but my OB told me if anything would've happened it probably would've happened in the first trimester. Well, I have a beautiful baby girl. But yeah, I've never heard of that before.
just popping in but wantesd to say there are really no good studies either way. however in my own experience metformin does not prevent miscarriages as some believe. now with that said I had three miscarriages while on metformin and lost two babies from this pregnancy while on it - but I quit taking it at 8 weeks this time and am now 19 weeks pregnant.
