    Haha, sorry, accidentally sent message without finishing...

    I'm on 1500 and have been taking it religiously. Its there to help keep my insulin levels in check, to help conceiving. I believe I'd probably continue taking it throughout pregnancy, to ensure I don't get gestational diabetes.

    I've stopped taking my metformin. It isn't helping anything just making me sick and giving me the runs. Hasn't helped me drop any weight and since I've been taking it my cycles are getting longer and longer. What's the point.

    Starflame you need to switch to slow release metformin. I initially took metformin then got diarrhea too which is a side affect. Switched to diabec xr which means extended release and it was fine instantly. My fertility specialist then said it can take up to 18mths for it to work. Alot of his patients got pregnant naturally after being on it for 18mths.

    Hi ladies, just thought I'd pop in and ask for some info on metformin. My doc is looking at starting me on it soon. Any info would be great.

    Metaformin is a great product
    I would suggest staying on it!!my periods began to get regular after taking metaformin.after having periods atleast 60days or more apart ,metaformin regulated my system to 28days which I was able to get a better idea when I ovulated.
    Once my tablets got upped to two tablets a day we got a bfp!!!
    I would also recommended taking elevit!!
