    I was wondering for any of you ladies that have PCOS with irregular cycles, if you were put on metformin and if your cycle returned? If it did return, did you need to still use clomid or femera? How long did it take to return?

    For those with PCOS and irregular cycles: when you were put on metformin...

    I got a natural period about 3-4 months after starting Metformin. The dose I was on wasn't enough to get me to ovulate consistently, though. I tried Clomid with little success, and am now using Femara with much better results ovulation-wise.
