I hope all is well. I am new to this board and I have been diagnosed with PCOS last year. I found out about my issue after a few years of giving birth to my child. He's 6 years old now and I am also currently pregnant with my second.
My question is, has anybody here taken Metformin during pregnancy instead of Insulin? My OB mentioned about this but the Endocrinologist she referred me to says she's uneasey with that medicine?
I have done my research and there seemed to be more postive results for Metfromin. Only that this type of med need further research.
Please can you tell me your experiences? I have been recently diagnosed with IGT (Imparied Glucose Tolerance) or pre-diabetes (which I heard common with PCOS). My Endo and her team has been watching my glucose level. And if worse comes to worse, they are going to put me in Insulin. I have been on a diet and I am really hoping I won't have to go through it.
Thank you for your help and any inofrmation you will provide
