In brief: Generally no

Metformin is used to induce normal menses if you have pcos.
Usually you need at least 1000-2000 mg/day in divided doses. Hypothyroidism can also affect periods, as can many other disorders, including pregnancy, if the metformin was able to restore your fertility, which is common.
