Metphormin works for women who have insulin resistance as a result of PCOS. It's not actually a fertility drug but has been very effective in helping many women ovulate normally.
That being said...I would HIGHLY recommend you look into taking Vitex. It is a natural herb that is VERY inexpensive (somewhere around 3 or 4 dollars a bottle) that has been HUGELY SUCESSFUL in women with PCOS. Many women have tried multiple fertility drugs without any sucess and then went on a vitex regimen that led them to normal cycles and pregnancy.
Fertility Blend (www.fertilityblend.com) is another natural herb blend that has been CLINICALLY PROVEN by doctors and specialist to work. Many women with PCOS have had great sucess with it. It is significantly more expensive than just plain vitex but WELL worth the money in my opinion.
