Thanks for the query.
Glucophage is nothing but metformin used in PCOS for insulin resistance. It increases the chances of conception and helps in weight reduction and thereby regularizes menstrual cycle and menstrual blood flow.
Nausea could be a side effect of glucophage.
Breast tenderness is due to progesterone in second half of the cycle.

Dr Nilofer

women with PCOS and a body mass index above 25 be given metformin for anovulation and infertility when other therapies have failed to produce results.
