metformin = early ovulation?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

hi everyone,

 

I just emailed my HCP to ask her this question but thought I'd throw it out here, too.

 

I starting taking Metformin (again) for my diabetes about 3 weeks ago. I know it can help you ovulate but I already ovulate regularly, if a little bit late (day 18, usually). Is it possible for it to make ovulation really early in your cycle? I'm on cycle day 11 and I think I ovulated today. I did have some fertile CM but not a lot and I kind of ignored it because it was so early. But I've been taking advil cold and sinus (with psuedophedrine) for a cold and now I think I was just a little dried up from the medicine. It occurred to me today when I had what felt like ovulation pains (a regular symptom for me) that maybe the metformin caused me to ovulate a week early. Is this possible? I guess I'll wait and see what the rest of the month brings.

 

If I did ovulate, we had good timing for TTC, even though we're not trying this month. Might end up with that june baby after all. :)

That's a good question.  I know lots of folks use Metformin.  I just started taking it myself, but I do not know the answer.  Does anyone have some input?

My CNM says it's very possible for it to move up ovulation! I know a lot of ladies take it to jumpstart ovulation but I didn't need it for that. Just a benefit that it's shortened my cycle a bit. I won't complain!
