glucophage can be taken through d whole pregnancy if ur diabetic. I'm happy enough to take it for a few days longer but that's me Im not on cylogest but from way I've read it is to support until the placenta starts workin did u ring ur clinic n voice ur concerns over the dates. maybe u cud try get another datin scan done

I asked SIMS the same question hon as I was on both of these till week 12. Was terrified of stopping because I felt that it was a crutch to the pregnancy. They told me that you could really stop both of these at 10 weeks but they build in 2 extra weeks just to be on the safe side. Also, remember that in other fertility clinics they actually stop all meds once the bfp is confirmed so really you've nothing to worry about. both are safe enough to continue so don't worry about that either. Why don't you take an extra week but reduce the meds so if you are taking cylogest twice a day only take it once for week "12" and same with the metformin. Then just stop it completely the following week? Filing that you could invest in a 12 weeks scan before you stop anything as they may have a better idea of your dates now...

I was on both aswell hon ..came off metaformin at 12 weeks ( I reduced down the dosage to one a day for a few days, then one every 2nd day then stopped so it wasnt a shock to my system. I was also on cyclogest till week 18 ( this could have been because I was expecting twins that they left me on it longer) and again I had to reduce down doseage rather than coming straight off it. your safe enough hon to come off it all now ( I remember being so glad to stop taking cyclogest as its not pleasant is it) once you know your at the 12 weeks but would defo go down the route of reducing dosage rather than coming straight off it. I know how worrying it is when you are stopping meds as you think this is helping your pregnancy but reality is hon that your pregnancy is established at this stage and placenta has taken over so no need for extra progesterone now. Best of luck hon :xxx
