Metformin is used to treat type II diabetes/insulin resistance and PCOS.  I can't say about helping to conceive, but I have seen people lose weight on it, though eating right is essential also.

I have been taking Synthroid 100mcg and Cytomel 5 mg added 8 months ago. Diagnosed today with Insulin resistance and will start Metfomin and diet changes. Any thoughts on this regime?
