Metformin is safe and effective and can be used even in pregnancy. Since you had discontinued medication on your own, you should first get a check up from a gynecologist to see if you are pregnant or if it is the usual delayed cycle of PCOD. HPTs are not so sensitive and so, they are not always positive. You can get a blood test and a sonogram. Soreness of breasts can occur in premenstrual phase and in early pregnancy too. Other symptoms of early pregnancy include tiredness, sleepiness, nausea and vomiting, altered tastes, increased bladder frequency etc. Do not worry, you have every chance to get pregnant. Get further advice from your doctor. Take care.
