Yes. Metformin treats the Insulin resistance associated with PCOS. Often, it is all you need to get ovulating. It requires patience, as it can take up to 6 months to correct Insulin resistance and PCOS. In my experience, if you are already on Metformin, Clomid (clomiphene) or Letrozole work better at inducing ovulation. Also, it reduces the risk of miscarriage pts with PCO have when taken through 1st trimester. Read more...

If I have Pcos and ttc, would I have to take metformin first for a while before being able to start clomid (clomiphene)?

Depends on your doc. Different docs handle this in different ways. If you start on a high dose of Metformin initially, it can give you nausea and diarrhea. Many docs will start you on a low dose of Metformin first to allow your body time to adjust. Over time they increase the dose into a range that is helpful with PCOS and then start Clomid (clomiphene). Some docs don't use Metformin at all. Best wishes! Read more...
