Hello Sheryll,
Thank you for your query.
People diagnosed with PCOS will face difficulty in conceiving, but it is not impossible.
You need to consult a proper infertility specialist.
Diet and weight loss with regular exercise is the backbone of therapy for PCOS.
Moreover, just taking Metformin might not help you conceive.
You might require the help of medications which help you ovulate .
Also, you should not waste further time, but consult a Fertility specialist for adequate treatment.
Since you are 32, do not waste more time
Take care.
