Metformin does not cure polycystic ovaries (I don't think anything does). Metformin increases the body's sensitivity to insulin, can improve the symptoms of PCOS and sometimes will cause the menstrual cycles to normalize. For some women, it can also help with weight loss. By regulating cycles, metformin can INCREASE the chances of becoming pregnant.
All the best.
