Question for those who use Progesterone and Metformin.

Doctor prescribed Metformin and Progesterone to help me conceive. I am not diabetic. I am 21 years old. I had a son in 2015 but lost him due to pprom that caused a placenta abruption. I conceived him naturally with no trouble. Now it's hard and the doctor has no clue why. He said he wanted to try Metformin and Progesterone to see if it helps it's the least aggressive way to try to get pregnant. Anyone have experience with taking these and we're they effective in helping you get pregnant?

Hi Miranda
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.
Metformin is usually used if the doctor suspects you may have POCOS. Progesterone is usually used if your natural progesterone may be a little low. Progesterone is needed to support a pregnancy. It is always with IVF cycles.
Hopefully these meds do the trick. Be warned of the tummy side effects related to metformin. If you do have tummy trouble it normally gets better in a couple weeks. Your doctor hopefully started you off on a low dose.
Best of luck to you!!
