Hello, anyone in first trimester and on metformin? I am on 1500mg per day and my doc says I'll stay on it for the 1st trimester. I have read a lot on the internet about miscarriages after going off of it. Anyone in the same situation? What is your doc telling you?

I'm now 9weeks pregnant with my first child. I'm on metformin 500mg once a day. I have heard bad things about quitting the med's during the first trimester that's why i fought with my dr to stay on these until then. I guess so far so good b/c I've been soooo sick. I don't recommend stopping until after your 12 weeks.

Thanks Stef, I am in the same boat. Dr told me that I'd stay on it through 1st trimester, but I'm nervous about going off it even after that.

Julie-I'm on 1500 mg per day and was told to stay on until 1st tri is over. I asked about the chances of m/c from going off and my dr said your chances of m/c after 1st tri reduces so greatly that there is just no need to take the pills then. She said why take any meds while pregnant if it isn't necessary? I still feel hesitant though so I will be checking w/ other drs before I do go off of it.

Hi Christy, I agree. I am going to push my Dr. to look into it also before I go off of it. I am going to ask him if it can hurt me to stay on it.....

Julie~ I just had may 3rd OB appt yesterday, Ive asked about the metformin issue n stuff.......he said its all controversial. Nothing to worry. Your Dr. will tell you to take metformin until your 1st tri is over. That is what Im doin too. I am 11w4d so nothing to worry. Don't listen to what you hear....ask your Dr. if you have any Q's.

I took metformin and clomid while ttc, it finally worked after 6 years, my fertility specialist is telling me NOT to stop it as I have a higher chance of miscarriage, he says I will have to take it at least the first trimester. I have read a lot of new research that makes me confident in my docs advice. I take the same dose as you as well - 1500mg. Hope all goes well for you!
