HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

PCOS is associated with increased difficulty conceiving but conception is possible.

The metformin that you were using would decrease the insulin resistance that is associated with this condition and is also associated with increased chance of conception.

You may want to consider using it.

The clomid would help with ovulation (release of 'eggs' from the ovary).

If you are trying to conceive, this can be restarted by your doctor.

If you experiencing difficulty conceiving using these methods appropriately then your doctor may suggest assisted reproduction such as IVF.

I hope this helps
