How many of you ladies have taken Clomid and Metformin and are happy with the combo? I was just diagnosed with PCOS, and so far I like Metformin because it takes my appet_te away. I hope to start clomid in two weeks after I see my doc for the next cycle. Any advice or input?

Sam- I am on the same regimen of metformin and clomid. I started taking metformin about two months ago, after finishing one clomid cycle with no ovulation. I am in the midst of my third cycle now and have yet to get results from the combo. I have heard that metformin can take a while to work and I am hoping that's the case with me. It seems like it's already working for you so that's good. Just make sure you take metformin with food because it can drastically drop your blood sugar levels. Good luck!

Thanks Maya~ I did have an episodelast night were my sugar dropped. I am also diabetic so I still have so much to learn about my sugar levels and my doc told me to keep candy in my purse just in case. I like that Anyway I started to feel light headed and just plain weird. I felt like i was floating away. My DH rushed me some jelly beans to bring my sugar up. I have used Clomid for the last 3 months and this month I amtaking off and starting Metformin to give it a little time before my next cycle. I hope the doc will give me a trigger shot as I believe I so desperately may need one in order to concieve but we will see. Thanks for your support! Samantha
