Answer:

Clomid increases the chances of getting pregnant for women who are not ovulating each month. Many of these women have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with irregular periods and increased hair.

Women with PCOS will ovulate more frequently when they are taking metformin with or without Clomid. However, Clomid alone also works well in women with PCOS. You should consult with a fertility specialist to determine which combination of mediations is most likely to help you become pregnant.
