Prob not yet: Unlikely that you are pregnant yet. Usually the metformin takes a while-- months -- to work and start helping people to ovulate. You probably are not ovulating normally. Seems like your doc may be treating you for pcos (poly cystic ovaries) or pre diabetes. Ask about Clomiphene (clomid).
