CLOMID - Metformin

Will be upping my clomid to 100 mgs this coming cycle (god help my poor DH......!) and also taking metformin with it. Just looking for any advice re. the metformin really - the effects it had on you, did it help you get your BFP etc?!?!?!

Many thanks.

Hi Hun, that is exactually what i was on when I concieved with L. The side effects for me were bloating, a bit of diahorria (sp) and lack of appetite. They didn't last long though only a few weeks, but I was on metformin for about 4 months before that cycle.

I had had 4-5 cycles of 50mg clomid with 1500mg metformin BFN then it was cycle 6 100mg clomid and 1500mg metformin resulted in BFP (I had also lost 2-3stone too).

Clomid and met certainly worked for me, I had been taken clomid for 6 cycles with no ovualtion then was given met and got my first bfp that cycle!

My advise is to take it slow start with half or one a day then slowly build it up to the dose you have been advised to take, watch your carb intake aswell as I was told carbs are hard to break down while taking met this is what can cause an upset stomach.

good luck hun hope it works for you xx
