Well, Metformin is actually a drug for diabetics..But is also prescibed for women that have PCOS..When you have PCOS, your ovaries basically shut down due to lack of insulin & a inbalance of hormones. Metformin helps to restore the insulin to get the ovaries pumping correctly--thus ovulation will occur..On that note, a woman is able to conceive because of proper ovaulation. I have PCOS & I just started taking it---my friend also took it & conceived after 3 months..Hopefully this info is helpful, and your reproductive system will respond & help you conceive...Good luck!
