Metformin and hurting boobs?
I've been on metformin for about 4 months now. I have never ever had painful boobs before in my life, and today they started hurting, very tender to the touch. You all know what I'm hoping, right?
Anyways, about 1.5 to 2 weeks ago, I was extremely attracted to my fiance, more so than usual. He's always attractive to me, but you know what I mean.
Anyways, tell me something, anything. Might I be pregnant, or am I getting ahead of myself?

I know what you are going through with the test thing too. Everytime I take a test, it comes out negative, and then a day or so later, AF comes. BUT, this time, the tests did come out negative, (Last week), and I didn't get my period, and then my boobs started hurting. I have been on Met for 4 months, and they only started hurting now. sigh, either way, even if I'm not pregnant, it must be working somehow, because I got my libido back. haha.
You at least need some sort of libido to want to be with your man, in order to have a chance of getting pregnant anyways. lol. So, at least that part is in my favour again.
I will let everyone know what happens.

I started Met mid November, got breast tenderness (that I have never had before) toward the end of December and wondered if it was an early pregnancy sign. I started taking tests last week like every other day, LOL. Well, I started my period on Monday (first normal one that I can remember in a long time). I never had that period symptom before, but I will take it! Thanks to God for the hope that this brings me.

I know what you mean. At least if we get periods, we know we are on the road to normal, and can kind of guess when we might be ovulating, so that gives us a better chance of having our little bundle of joy. I took a test yesterday, and it was a BFN!! My Doctor wants me to take a test at the hospital next week, just to be sure. Wish me luck!

when I first started metformin I did get the same side effects. It was like all my hormones woke up all at once. I felt pains in the ovary area, sore boobs and the sight of some foods make me sick to my stomach. I took two pregnancy tests because everything seem to get worse after the first test. No PG yet but there are a lot of hormones waking up that I've never felt beforeLonny (34) + Dh (37)

haha - I know what you mean about really having the hots for your fella. When I ovulate I can't go NEAR any men as I get this bizarre urge to lick their ears!
I reckon you could be preg given the timings. The only thing you can do is another test hun. Good luck! xxx

My breasts hurt SO BAD with met when I'm ovulating and when I'm nearing my AF.
Especially my nipples. The other day my little 11 pound dog jumped up and hit one of my nipps and I thought I was going to throw up it hurt so bad. I actually cried!
I think it has to do with the hormones.
Oh, and as for feeling very "attracted" - I know what you mean. Especially when I'm ovulating. I'm practically climbing the walls, begging for him to "express our affection".
Good luck!EDD 07/04/12.

Has anyone's boobs gotten BIGGER since starting met?! This is my second week on it and boy have they grown! (Still no sign of AF, though).

My coworker is on Metformin and she said when she first got on it her libido went through the roof. She said she thought about sex all the time. I am still taking my Provera and hoping for a period and then I will start my Metformin prescription.
