Reviews for Metformin to treat Female Infertility
Review by Sherbess:
I got pregnant in 2003 with no problem. Went on birth control. we started trying again for 4 years no pregnancy. I was told I now had polycystic ovarian syndrome. Pretty heavily. So I started taking 3 pills a day. I got pregnant Within 3 months. Healthy baby boy is now 2 years old. The only problem was I had diarrhea. It slowly got better. But I would take it again!

Review by Not loving it (taken for 1 to 6 months):
I must be the small percentage who seems to suffer all side effects. I have had the diarrhea, sweats, insomnia, stomach pain, weight loss, and the list goes on. I'm on 1.5 pills per day and have to find a way to work myself up to 3 pills a day. I suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis and am hoping this will help with that and my infertility.

Review by missJ2:
I just started taking metformin. This was given to me by my ob/gyn because I just got married and my husband and I are trying to have baby. Just started this week so the side effect haven't hit me fully, I do get the stomach pain. I haven't been diagnosed with PCOS but I think I have it. So far things are looking okay. Just waiting to see if everything fall in to place.
