Q: Can I Conceive With PCOS Taking Metformin & Clomid?

Oct 7, 2017

Ans. – Yes, you can conceive using a combination of clomid and metformin. Clomid is a low-tech, lower-cost option than in vitro fertilization (IVF). Chances of conceiving with clomid are around 15% per month for about 3-4 months. Clomid treatment, however, should be continued for only about 6 months. After this, further clomid treatment yields no results. The biggest problem with clomid use is the mood swings it causes. Called the “clomid crazies,” it affects close to half the women taking clomid. Clomid Crazies include anxiety, difficulty with sleeping, irritability, mood swings and PMS-like emotional symptoms. Clomid is a very potent drug; it tricks your body into thinking that estrogen levels are low. While this can help you ovulate, you can well imagine the chain of events it can set into motion.
