I didn’t O or have AF for 6 months before met. After getting up to 1500, my cycles started to regulate.

AF started for me very soon after starting metformin.  Like you, I am not sure whether or not mine was coincidence or not.  I will say that I was 26 days into my cycle and previously my cycles were running 35-45 days (I had a 60 day one thrown in there as well).  Consistency was different for me as well, and continues to be.  I don’t really have clots at all anymore.

I got off of bc and was having 60+ day cycles which obviously made itdifficult to time conception….so my doctor put me on 1500met from the get go. After 1 month I got my period, 2 months I was pregnant. 3rd month I threw the bottle away because I no longer needed it. So for me, yes it brought on af and regulated my cycle.

@anotherbee:  Well, ideally, that’s what Metformin would do for you – to regulate your cycles and hopefully O on your own. I don’t think it necessarily induces AF, but it provides the body with the insulin control it needs to begin working toward a regular cycle. =) Hope that helps!
