    Default do I need metformin too?

    My dr just prescribed clomid because I'm not ovulating and I jut saw on the board here that people take metformin with clomid because clomid can cause Insulin resistance? I had Gestational Diabetes with both pregnancys so I'm prone to diabetes should i be worried?

    Clomid doesn't cause insulin resistance. If you use Met + Clomid at the same time it's usually due to having PCOS and it's the PCOS sufferers that usually have insulin resistance (it's a sign/symptom of PCOS). The Met just helps with that aspect of PCOS and can help the person O better from what I understand.
