Thanks for your query
You should consult an Infertility Specialist, who will best decide the course of treatment for you.
PCOS causes problems with ovulation and conceiving, and you need detailed investigations and treatment for that.
Taking metformin and clomiphene is one way out, but if you do not respond to that, further treatment options in the form of gonadotropins ( injections ), IUI and IVF are also available.
Also, you should have your other basic hormonal work up done, the semen testing of your partner should be done, and your fallopian tube patency should be assessed.
At 23, you have years ahead of you in which to conceive, and modern treatments will definitely make it possible.
The mainstay of treatment for PCOS is weight reduction , a healthy lifestyle that incorporates exercise and good nutritious diet.
Stress, frustration , depression and such negative emotions will negatively impact your already disturbed hormonal condition.
Take care.
