The purpose: Of Progesterone is to counteract the unopposed estrogen and help you have normal period . The purpose of metformin is to help patients lose weight

PCOS /Progesterone: Patients with pcos taking metformin will reduce the Insulin resistance seen in some pcos patients and it may make things more regular but isn't a treatment. If you are taking Progesterone throughout the cycle, then you aren't likely to get pregnant because the lining won't be suitable for implantation. You should only be taking Progesterone after ovulation if you aren't making enough.
