TTC using Metformin & Provera

Has anyone or IS anyone currently ttc by using metformin and provera? And have you had success? I finally am on my 5th day of AF thanks to the Provera. I am hoping with all my heart to finally ovulate soon. *crossing my fingers*

Hello ih8pcos,

I always have to take provera in order for AF. I am currently on metformin but not to help ovulate. I have to take injectables to make me ovulate. However, the metformin did make me lose weight. I know that's why some Dr.'s prescribe it in hopes to help weight loss and to then be able to ovulate on your own. If that's why you're taking it, it definitely does help to lose weight, even if you're really not trying to. I take the metformin because its believed to help reduce the chances of miscarriages with women who have PCOS. I lost my twins this past August, and was then given metformin. Its kind of rough to get used to but then its not so bad.
Good luck to you.
