I am taking metformin along with clomid (clomiphene).What is the role of metformin. Does it help me ovulate in the first cycle?

I am taking metformin along with clomid (clomiphene).What is the role of metformin. Does it help me ovulate in the first cycle?

It could.: Though metformin has more commonly been used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, recent studies have demonstrated that it can help induce ovulation in some women with polycystic ovary syndrome. This is largely due to the fact that many women with this particular condition are actually Insulin resistant, leading to an increased level of this hormone in the bloodstream. When Insulin levels rise, it can cause an overproduction of androgens, or male hormones, in the female's body. This heightened level of male hormones in you system can greatly impede ovulation. Metformin decreases the level of Insulin in your bloodstream thus causing ovulation, which increases chances of conception. ...Read more
