I'm TTC no.3 and have PCOS. Somehow got pg with DC1 without help, with cycles 45-60 days long. Dc2 was conceived on cycle 7 but we paid for a private referral and I was given metformin which I was only on for a month and then conceived. I've been tracking my cycles and reckon my luteal phase is only around 10 days, cycle length 30 days. I'd like to give metformin a try again but without having to pay about £200 for a private referral. Does anyone know if a GP would prescibe it if previous proof of PCOS, blood tests etc etc?
Thank you that's really useful to know. I wondered whether I could just buy it but not sure I agree with doing that in this situation.
yellowflowers- yes, would definitely build up gradually. I think I only got so far as 2 tablets a day last time but the first 7-10 days on it I felt lousy. Not looking forward to that but it did settle down.
Any other thoughts appreciated. Anyone been on this twice with success in conceiving?
