Can Metformin Help?

Researchers are studying how the medicine metformin prevents or reduces the chances of having these problems while pregnant. They are also looking at how the drug lowers male hormone levels and limits weight gain in women who are obese when they get pregnant.
No one yet knows if metformin is safe for pregnant women. Because the drug crosses the placenta, doctors are concerned that the baby could be affected by it. Research is ongoing.
