I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I take Metformin 500mg twice a day. The Metformin has always given me loose bowel movements but I was just wondering if that should change now that I'm pregnant since they say you are suppose to get constipated not the other way around when pregnant. Anyways, I'm very anxious cause this is my 3rd pregnancy. I have a 4 yr. old son and I had a M/C back in '04 while ttc on Clomid. We've done 9 rounds of Clomid since which we stopped in April but I continued on with the Metformin as I have PCOS. Then surprise, surprise, here I get pregnant in June with no Clomid!! We're very happy but nervous right now and I'd like to have anyone to talk with that may be going through a similar experience.

Jokat, I take Metformin 500 mg 3 times a day. I also have PCOS and it took us over a year to conceive. I was on metformin for 2 months and became pregnant. I also have loose bowel movements. I'm about 15 weeks now and I'm still having some problems. I would say it has gotten a little better. Maybe it's kinda evening out. My email is [email protected] if you'd like to email. I'm bad about remembering to check this board sometimes. Good Luck!
