Has anyone gotten pregnant while taking Glucaphage? It is a medication for diabetics but it also will increase your chance of getting pregnant and decreasing the chance of a miscarriage from what the dr. told me. I was just curious if anyone has had success with this medicaiton?

750 mg. now 2 times a day. The dr. had me start out with 1 pill a day to get my stomach use to it since he said it is a very hard medication to adjust to. He said to take 1 for 2 to 3 weeks but I was fine with it so after the first week I increased it. I do forget to take them sometimes though. I have noticed that I started spotting before my period (which i normally do) and then my period lasted 2 1/2 days. Then a day later I started spotting again for about 5 days. I am ovulating now and have a pain on the one side. It 's not horrible but noticable and didn't have it before. I am acutally waiting to get in with the dr. to see if I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome so I dont know if that is why I have the pain. How many milligrams are you on?

Well I still need to have it confirmed that I definitely have polycystic ovary syndrome but it is most likely. It was the endocrynologist who wants me to be checked for it. I was talking with my cousin who works in a fertility clinic and she informed me of this. Many OBGYN's will have you do many months or years of trying with only using pills as meds. This is not a problem if it works within the first few months. The do not have the staff or the ability to show patients how to use injectable medication. If you should try for more than 3 months unsuccessfuly (which this is month 3 for me but month 1 for the medication and i know that isn't long), she suggested that I in particular go to see an infertility specialist. She checked with her job as far as what coverage that I have with my insurance and all I can say is WOW!!!!!! My concern was how will I ever afford this if I really needed help. I didn't think that insurance covered much of any of it. She told me that NJ which is where her and I live, mandated insurance coverage through some employers to cover infertility and my job was one of them and I have tons of coverage. Good luck to all 3 of us. My cousin is also on glucaphage to have another baby!!
