METFORMIN 500 mg reduces insulin resistance which ultimately helps in Reducing the androgen levels in body.these androgen hormones are responsible for many of symptoms of PCOS.
METFORMIN also Helps in regularizing your periods and helps n induction of ovulation.
However METFORMIN doesn't reduce your weight.
For reduction of weight you have to go for less calorie diet along with increased and regular exercises.
Also get your thyroid function tests done.
don't loose patient and you shall be able to loose weight.
You may even consult a dietician for reduction of weight.
Mind it,reduction of weight and regular exercises ate must for your regularizing of periods.

PCOD requires lifestyle modification in the form of diet control and exercises.

Get your thyroid profile done

If medically not controlled then surgical treatment is Lap ovarian drilling but you are too young for that.

So continue with metformin

Best wishes
