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.

Metformin decreases the level of Insulin in your bloodstream thus causing ovulation, which increases chances of conception. ...Read more
