Hello,

If you are still not getting pregnant with only taking Metformin then you should consider seeing a local fertility doctor. Of course the other medication you mentioned are the next steps to treating infertility. But you need to first figure out where the problem is, see if that problem can be treated differently and then proceed as needed.

Clomiphene is a drug which helps ovulation happen so can help only if in your case the problem are lack of ovulation. If the problem is in your partner sperm or you have any other problem, then Clomiphene or Metformin cannot help.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
