I just got my precription of met filled today. My quesetion is should I wait untill af shows to start taking it? Are you supposed to stop taking it as soon as you get your bfp? Is it safe during pregnancy? Thanks lady's!
You can start taking the met as soon as you fill the script it doesnt matter where you are in the cycle. As far as when you get pregnant you need to ask your DR. They are all different some have you stay on it for the first trimester other tell you to stop taking it right away and yet others let you stay on all pregnancy. So its kind of a tricky question. Good luck with everthing
You can start Metformin as soon as you get it. You don't have to wait after af is done. I've been on the med since June...3x a day. I haven't stopped since! From what I've been told and read, if you do get pregnant, it is recommended to still take it during your first few weeks/months of pregnancy. It apparantly helps in reducing miscarriages as well. But obviously you would follow the orders of your doctor whether to continue the med or not after conceiving.
I started taking met before my AF and it helped to regulate in that cycle. As for PG, as the others said, it is a pretty controversial subject. My RE has said that he would keep me on the met if I was to get pg. I think that is the most current thinking on the subject. I would consult your doc if you do get PG.
I stayed on Metformin the whole pregnancy. I was told it would reduce risk of MC and lessen chances of gestational diabetes.
I am still on it and will more than likely be on it for management of PCOS forever!
