It appears that you will become pregnant in the usual amount of time as any healthy couple would. Usually both partners must be healthy in order to expect a pregnancy prior to, or in 6 months to a year. That includes a normal sperm count and motility for the male and monthly ovulation for the female, among other things. If you monitor when you ovulate and have sex at the appropriate time, you can expect to be pregnant within these time limits given or sooner. Any limitations from PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) are still present. Metformin plays a a significant part AFTER you are pregnant.

Metformin therapy in pregnant women aids with PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome on weight loss, fertility, early pregnancy loss, malformations, gestational diabetes mellitus, perinatal mortality, placental clearance, lactation, and early childhood development. Preliminary data suggest that metformin for this population may be both safe and effective. Large blinded, randomized clinical trials are underway to confirm the preliminary safety data.
