It might be a good idea to talk to your doctor. Did he say why he put you on Metformin? It's usually prescribed for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). Metformin can help get your cycle back if you haven't been ovulating.

Since you've only been on it for 3 weeks, I'd say it's a little too early to test. Maybe wait another week and then test if AF is still a no show.

I think wait another week and then test.

Did you have any signs that you ovulated? Not everybody does, and if you haven't been it's probably even harder to tell.

You should start tracking your cycle if you're not already. The charts would help you and your doctor see what's going on. There are web sites and books that explain what to do. I think the book I have is called Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Some ladies use the Fertility Friend web site. It's free.

You really should check out Fertility Friend (or get a book if you're a reader). Fertility Friend has instructions on how to track your cycle including explaining what to look for when charting your temp. It should spike right after you ovulate.

I think charting would help you and your doctor treat your PCOS more effectively. It should show whether / when you're ovulating. It'll also help you know when the best time to BD each cycle.

In my case, charting helped me figure out that I ovulate late in my cycle not right in the middle.
