Can metformin delay your period ?

I am 26/f with period cycles of 35-37 days. I was asked to take metformin this cycle and have been taking for the past 20 days. My period was due yesterday but I did not have it. Home pregnancy test negative.

Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Metformin is not responsible for the delay of periods.It seems you are suffering from Poly cystic ovary disease (PCOD) for which your doctor has prescribed Metformin.In patients suffering from PCOD it is natural to have irregular and delayed periods.Thanks and good luck.
