Successful Pregnancy While On Metformin Glucophage

3 Replies
It can happen!! - October 23

Hi, I am wondering if anyone has had a successful pregnancy while taking metformin, and how far into the pregnancy did you take it? My Dr. started me on it in mid September. I have quite a bit of diabetes in my family and have the body type etc. for it. Well, I got a BFP tonight and I am wondering about the success of maintaining pregnancy while on metformin. My Dr. said I'd be on it for the first trimester. I have read quite a bit (on this site mostly) of people miscarrying after discontinuing it. Anyone have any thoughts??

My mom was four month pregnant when she found out she was pregnant, She was taking her medication until that point. Her doc had her discontinue and start insiline as soon as they found out she was pregnant. My sister will be 13 in January. She was born a month premature but that was due to mom's high blood pressure becasue of the diabetes. My sis was still 8 lbs 9 oz!!!!! Good luck to you...

I was put on Glucophage the moment I found out I was pregnant. I have PCOS which affects insulin and am high risk for miscarriage due to it. I have had 2 prior m/c and w/ both pregnancies I was not on Glucophage. So this time I'm not taking chances-the dr. says it will decrease my chances of m/c by 10%. They take you off of it by the end of 1st tri but I will be researching that before I go off of it...I'm 7 weeks right now.
