My Ds is 13 months, he was conceived with IUI.
I currently have Mirena in and am having talks with hubby about #2.
I've spoken to me ob and she has said once I get Mirena out she will put me on high dosage metformin and if I'm not UTD in 3 months we will re-asses.
Has anyone else been told this?
My ovaries are still riddled with cysts

CD: can't imagine how that would feel when your child asks that question. He asks it innocently too. Don't let it get you down. Not like your preventing it like taking birth control. I hope your able to start getting tests going next week. My husband doesn't want to get his hopes up so he doesn't say anything much in terms of it not happening month especially with irregular cycles. But I know he wants another one deep down. I was commenting about going on holidays at the end of next year as we have a money box for it and I was asking where he would like to go and he said he'd rather another kid
Heyside: can't believe that someone would actually say that to someone and in front of a big crowd!!! How incredibly insensitive!!! Says alot about someone. The person that said that stuff to me was sadly a family member!!

Hoping...no idea sorry. I take metformin for insulin resistance.

It sounds as though you guys have also met some pretty insensitive people!
For those that are on metformin and ttc - my doctor said she wouldn't start me on it while ttc. My ovaries are cystic at the moment and I've been low-gi everything, no sugar, no dairy for a month and a half, clomid and still nothing. Have just begun on our sixth month since mc. How does the metformin help one to conceive? Just wondering - still learning.
Forgot to say - yes, I also have insulin resistance and have a BMI around 22-23. Work out everyday (well, except for Friday as I was too cranky and sore that AF had come on Thursday)

Hi hoping28, I have never been told that myself but I suppose I decided myself to take a very similar approach, I started a low gi diet at the beginning of the year and came off the pill at the end of February after seeing my doctor who put me on Metformin. I stayed on the met alone to see if it did anything to my hormones and helped me to ovulate without having to take any other fertility drugs. During the past 4 months I have been taking met my doctor has kept a close eye on my cycle with a 21 day progesterone blood test to see if I have been ovulating, maybe ask your doctor if he will do the same for you. The met alone hasn't helped me however and I have not ovulated for 4 months so have taken steps last month to improve my chances.

ProudMumma - I don't think my friend meant it the way it sounded and she probably doesn't even remember the comment but it really hurt me at the time and I cried all the way home. Does your family member know the difficulty you had last time ttc?
LittleTed - You sound very dedicated to the low gi diet and fitness (well done you), I try to stick to it as best I can but sometimes find it very confusing and after 6 months of the diet have some lapse days . My Ob seems to think the low gi diet and met wont be of much help to me as I am not insulin resistant and have a BMI of 20 but I have read lots of research which show it can still help and actually have to say I find the met helps some of my other symptoms such as acne so has to be doing something. I think with insulin resistant women it lowers the amount of insulin in the body which sometimes can be the cause of the hormone inbalance. The link below shows some good info on met, hope it helps. http://www.jarrettfertility.com/PCOS...nt handout.pdf

Wow - finally got through all the info. It sounds like metformin should be safe and preferable in first 12 weeks to lower chances of mc according to them. I wonder why my doctor said no whilst TTC.
