Hello everyone!

Well, we are deifnitely TTCing #2, I am so excited! But, you know, with my first, I got pregnant right away! I mean, we decided to stop using protection in August, and on September 11th I found out I was pregnant! Of course, back then my PCOS was completely controlled, and my weight was still pretty normal...now I'm overweight again, so my PCOS showed up again (diagnosed by an ultrasound), and insulin resistance and all that crap ()

So, I've been treated before, for a looooong time, with metphormin, and all, so I know exactly what to do, and what to take, and what to eat...so, could I just start using metphormin on my own??? I just read it would help my TTCing....what do you say?

Anyway....just want so me feedback

Thank you all!

you need a prescription for it and it may or may not help get you pregnant. Good luck!

Yeah you would need a prescription for it. If you still have some refills or something you might could get them filled but it's probably just better to go back to the doctor. Good luck!

Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy!
