Metformin and Egg Reserve!

Dec 02, 2015 - 14 comments

So today the nurse called with my insulin levels.  She said they like for them to be below 12.5 and mine was 14.2.  She said on anyone else's blood work it wouldn't even be a red flag but since I'm ttc  he likes for them to be below the 12.5.  So they're calling me in some Metformin? She was warning me about how it's going to make me feel, could be stomach issues and so forth.  She also gave me my Ovarian Reserve numbers.  She said I have a good number considering I'm 36.  My number is 1.6 and they like for it to be between 0.4 - 8.3.  I'm soo happy about that.  That's another thing I've been worried about.  

Journaling as I go.  :)

That's good news Des!!!  Metformin is rough on the tummy but after a couple weeks you will be ok. Hope they start you off on a low dose first. Wonderful news on the FSH too!  Keep that good news coming!!

Thank you so much E!! Yeah she warned me about it lol.  It's 500mg a day for 7 days then I take 2 a day for 7 days and on the 3rd week they want me at 3 a day for 7 days and keep it there.  Does that sound like to much?  

Thank you journey!  :)

No 500mg is the lowest I think. It can be radical. I'm supposed to take 850mg 3x daily but I can never stomach more then 2 a day. My body just won't accept more.

Oh okay thank you.  Yeah that's what I'm afraid of.  I have such a low tolerance to meds that I'm actually kinda scared about taking this.  I start it this afternoon so we shall see.
