Hi, welcome to healthcare magic.

Your tube was blocked most probably because of the previous surgery.

Metformin is used in cases of polycystic ovary syndrome, and in cases resistant to clomiphene, so mabe the doctor uses it to induce better ovulation.

There are many missing data that will make me able to help you:
Your weight and height.
Your medical history.
Your hysterosalpingiography.
Your husband's recent semen analysis.
Your day 2 FSH, LH, TSH and prolactin.
Your previous medications and your response on them.
Your ultrasound picture.

If you send me these data I can answer all your questions and discuss with you the options of treatment.

I hope I have answered your query and I am waiting to know the results.

I wish you good luck and getting pregnant soon.

Good luck.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
