Newbie after 3 years and just diagnossed with PCOS last week

I was active member of this board 3 years ago when I was trying to conceive for my first one.
Now here I am again while trying for conceiving second one.
While last ttc, I had problem of short luteal phase when doctor prescribed me progesteron suppository I conceived.
Now I am again experiencing same short luteal phase (7 days) issue.
I first thaught I will try natural remedies like vitex and vitamin B. but instead of helping with lengthing luteal phase it delayd my ovulation to 30th day.
So I scheduled appointment with endocrinologist. She did some bloodwork and now I am dignossed with PCOS (FSH/LH ratio = 1:3).
So doctor prescribed me metformin 500 mg.
but I started it 2 days after my ovulation.
not sure what are chances that it will work in this cycle. hoping for best.
looking for metformin success stories.

I haven't dealt with PCOS, but I've seen a number of women have good success with metformin. I hope it does the trick for you, and you get that BFP quickly!
