  • Glucophage is used to try and regulate a period. The side effects suck and it can take each person a different amount of time. It is up to your body and your hormones. It took me 3 years on it along with Provera and Clomid to get pregnant and 7 years total of having unprotected sex. GL

  • I have PCOS and was on Metformin for 8 months with no luck. I started Clomid and was pregnant after the second month. Everyone is different.. some people have luck with the Metformin, others don't. Good luck :)
