Glucophage (metformin) is a medicine that helps control blood sugar levels, most commonly used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Glucophage is also used to help stimulate ovulation in patients who are having trouble conceiving.
It may be that your sister has polycystic ovary syndrome (http://www.drugs.com/enc/polycystic-ovary-disease.html) a condition that can cause infertility. Glucophage is often prescribed to women with this condition as it assists the body with responding to and managing its insulin which in turn helps the ovaries function more regularly, and creates a more regular ovulation cycle. This greatly improves the ability to conceive.
If your sister has experienced rapid weight gain with the Glucophage, she should let her doctor know.
