Does Metformin Increase the chance of having twins? AndysWife&LillysMom 1 child; New Hampshire 5772 posts

I had heard that fertility medications increase the chance of having twins but I wasnt sure if Metformin was included in that...does anyone know?

I know IVF & Clomid often produce twins.

Metformin is a medication that helps regulate insulin. It is often prescribed to non-diabetic women with PCOS due to our hormones being off kilter. It negates the insulin-resistance our bodies tend to have which often will lead to a better balance of hormones enabling you to become pregnant. It does not change the odds of having multiples, just the odds of getting pregnant.

Clomid forces your ovary to release mature eggs instead of hanging on to them to develop into the cysts common with PCOS. Although Clomid can increase the odds of multiples, it is still quite rare when Clomid is the only fertility med being used. I have used clomid myself and am pregnant with my 3rd singleton pregnancy.
