Metformin use fails to affect cervical length in women with PCOS

February 4, 2016

In a subanalysis of the Metformin in Pregnant PCOS Women (PregMet) study, researchers also found that women with higher androgen levels at 32 weeks gestation were more likely to have shorter cervix measurements, a sign of preterm labor.
