I have been on it for the past 4 months and haven't gotten pregnant yet.  I was on bc fo 4 years so the doctor told me it would take time.

Metformin is a diabetes medication in that it can help the ovaries better utilize glucose. Many people forget that PCOS is a hormonal (endocrine) malfunction and not not a disorder of the reproductive system. I take it for diabetes... Hopefully it'll work for you. Be forwarned to start it gradually and always take it with food.

That's wonderful! How long were you on it before you conceived?

Once i added the metformin it was probably 5-6 months ish. I had been on clomid for a while before that tho too.
