Q: Is it possible for a woman with PCOS to get pregnant with metformin alone?

Ans.  Yes. There have been studies done that conclude that metformin can induce ovulation in PCOS women. One study (probably the largest of the lot) found that close to 46% of women who took metformin ovulated as compared to 24% of women who ovulated without taking any treatment. The studies also underline the importance of lifestyle changes in enhancing the chances of getting pregnant on metformin.

One of the questions many people ask: If lifestyle changes are so important, why take metformin at all? Because Metformin is known to cause many side effects usually as it is known to deplete a lot of vital nutrients from the body. Also, there are better, safer and completely natural ways to not only get pregnant but to treat PCOS from its roots. A holistic approach to PCOS and pregnancy involves diet and lifestyle changes, apart from stress management and exercise

What’s equally important is that for the sake of your unborn child, you want to deal with PCOS at its root and eliminate the causes of high insulin. This way, you can ensure that you give the best to your child and yourself.
