Metformin is an insulin-sensitizing agent that is sometimes used in conjunction with Clomid in patients who have polycystic ovary syndrome. Metformin may increase your fertility to the extent that it reduces insulin resistance, and thus helps to normalize insulin. Too much insulin reduces your fertility.
