I have pcos and so have been taking metformin while ttc and all through my pregnancy so far.

I have never taken the slow release stuff just the normal. I'm on 1500 mg a day, which is a lot.

Apart from the first maybe three days where I had some diahorea and stomach cramps it hasn't affected me at all.

Your body gets used to it after a few days. Plus if you take the slow release stuff I have heard its much easier on the tummy! Best of luck!

I thought about asking my doctor for metaformin as I have PCOS but she said that now I am pregnant, the fact I had PCOS is 'irrelevant' and I don't need to do anything or worry. Is this true?
