Hi all! Prior to my pregnancy I'd been taking Metformin to help my PCOS for a couple of years, but stopped when I fell pregnant as the packaging said not to use when pregnant. My Midwife didn't tell me I could use it, so I didn't and now I have gestational diabetes! I have a good diet anyway - no sugar, really low carb and only eat unprocessed whole foods and am still really active, so I'm not sure what more I can do. I've asked a few times if I can start taking my metformin again as I have loads left (in date!) but consultant just dismisses me saying I need to control diet and exercise... does anyone know why this is? It actually seems to be safe during pregnancy as they do prescribe it to some women - is it a cost thing? I'd appreciate any advice!
