Is Metformin Safe Before Hsg Test?

person-avatar

Hi, I have been married for two years and TTC since last year. I am taking Metformin 750mgx2 daily after being diagnosed with mild PCOS and scheduled for an HSG test this friday. I read that it is not safe to take while having certain tests done. Is the HSG test okay to do while on it?

You may stop Metformin 48 hours before the hsg test and then start again the day after the test.
