I should introduce myself, I'm 25, DH is 26, we're being TTCing since Feb. My GP noticed in some blood tests that I might have PCOS so she sent me to a gyno. So yesterday it was confirmed by the gyno.
I was given Metformin, Clomid and Provera. I won't start taking the Provera until the end of next week (I may have actually naturally ovulated this month as I have a clear BBT rise 7 days ago). Gyno gave me a blood test to check for pregnancy late next week, if not, start Provera.
Then I take Clomid from CD2 - CD6 and my cycle tracking with the fertility clinic start on CD10.
I can't remember when he said I can start taking the Metformin. I am assuming immediately its taken all cycle? I thought if I start it tonight, I know what symptoms are from Metformin and which are from Provera/ Clomid.
My questions is.... did you start your Metformin straight away or waiting until the beginning of your next cycle?

I also have pcos and Am ttc #1
I take both clomid and metformin..
I'm on 1500mg of metformin daily.
U can start the metformin straight away- symptoms I have had with metformin are : nausea, diarrhea and headaches but they do go away after a few weeks!!!!
I have heard taking both metformin and clomid helps ovulation sometimes better then clomid on it's own......
Best of luck on your journey - I am nearing the end of my second cycle of clomid but doubt it worked this month

The symptoms came on so quickly for me!! They are horrible, I hope they only last a few weeks for me as well!

I was told to gradually increase the metformin dose!! Or you will get loads of "Metformin moments"... Im up to 1500 a day now (taken me 3 months), and lucky slowly increasing dramatically decreased side effects, but I still can't get up to 2000 cause it makes me !!!
I have heard the same as Teetee, literature suggests a higher chance of pregnancy with using metformin in conjunction with clomid, compared to clomid on its own!

I also just started metformin 2 nights ago and hating it... So sick and dizy.
Hope it goes away, I don't know if conceiving is worth it at the moment.
