Clomid may help: Metformin is no longer recommended as the first line treatment for PCOS patients wanting to become pregnant. Clomid works much better, however you do need to remember that there is about a 10% chance of having a multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets) with clomid use, and multiple pregnancies are more complicated.
