Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Yes, better to take contraceptive pills along with metformin.
Metformin helps as insulin sensitizer.
Whereas contraceptive pills will help in regularization of the hormonal levels, there by they will help in regularization of the cycles, deceasing dysmenorrhea etc.
You have to take these pills at-least for three months to get desired effect.
For more details you can ask me through: http://www.healthcaremagic.com/doctors/dr-sree-gouri-sr/63429
Take care.
