I have a 3 year old and conceived her via IUI 4 years ago. I had gone thru 6 IUI cycles -- so you can imagine I was ready to give up. I had been asking from the beginning for my dr to put me on metformin (because I had heard of so many success stories with people being on it) but he said it would not help me
Finally, after the 5th IUI failure, he diagnosed me with PCOS. I have all the symptoms; just not the cysts. Needless to say, I took it for a couple of months and on my next (6th) IUI cycle, my miracle daughter arrived. 3 years later, I am going to try IUI again. My dr. put me back on metformin right away for a minimum of 6 weeks before trying. We are towards the end of our 1st IUI cycle and I find out on Monday if it works.
One thing I do recommend to you in regards to your health -- make sure your dr. tests your liver enzymes every once in a while. Metformin tends to give you elevated liver enzymes (it did for me back then and they monitored that very closely). Just a suggestion. I hope it works for you like it worked for me the 1st time. I just hope it works one more time for me
Keep me posted.
