It's not only possible, but more likely (though it doesn't work for everyone). I am a 30ish-year old woman of healthy weight treating my PCOS with 1500mg Metformin daily in hopes of conceiving my fourth child. Metformin is a recommended treatment for women wishing to conceive and suffering from PCOS; it oftentimes restores ovulation. In my case, this appears to be true! YAY!! My DH and I will be thrilled if a pregnancy results before having to resort to injectables like we did ttc our third precious child (we conceived our first two in our young years of marriage...naturally, despite my extremely long, sometimes anovulatory cycles). Many REs will combine Met with Clomid. Clomid and I don't get along, though. Best wishes and HTH! M, happily married to my sweetheart almost 10 years now! Blessed with three, gorgeous children.

How is Metformin used to treat PCOS?

Metformin is a diabetes medication commonly used in PCOS patients. Metformin helps you process glucose properly (which PCOS patients don't because of insulin resistance). By getting your blood sugar in check, hormonal imbalances can be prevented and proper ovulation can occur. Women with PCOS can get pregnant by using Metformin to regulate their ovulation cycles. If you take Metformin for 6+ months without any luck getting pregnant, your doctor may take your infertility treatment to the next level, such as taking Clomid to induce ovulation.

Is it possible to get pregnant when you have PCOS but have been off your medication for little over a month?

It's always possible to get pregnant, with or without PCOS. Medication is perscribed for a reason, and should be taken regularly, depending on what type of medication you are on it may be risky to go on and off of the medication. If you are on a birth control treatment it wouldn't be possible for you to get pregnant if you took your medication regularly before. Birth control builds up in the blood stream, just like Metformin. With Metformin as a treatment you could possibly be pregnant. The only way to tell for sure is to go to your local clinic and get a blood test.

Don't lose hope though, you can get pregnant with PCOS, it just may take longer.

Does metformin help you get pregnant?

Well, Metformin is actually a drug for diabetics..But is also prescibed for women that have PCOS..When you have PCOS, your ovaries basically shut down due to lack of insulin & a inbalance of hormones. Metformin helps to restore the insulin to get the ovaries pumping correctly--thus ovulation will occur..On that note, a woman is able to conceive because of proper ovaulation. I have PCOS & I just started taking it---my friend also took it & conceived after 3 months..Hopefully this info is helpful, and your reproductive system will respond & help you conceive...Good luck!

No you can not get pregnant. I was recently tested for PCOS (turns out I don't have it) but my doctor said that while it is extremely difficult to get pregnant, you could still have a chance. Just because you don't have regular periods, doesn't mean you don't ovulate. That's just what my doctor told me. You should see your own doctor for more information. -in my humble opinion...
