    Hello, yes you are taking the right dosage of metformin. Try the following tips for fertility Take Tab Folvite 5mg once daily Tab Zincovit once daily Take good balanced diet Take plenty of fruits vegetables and water Try to have intercourse between Day 9 to Day 16 of your period (considering DAY 1 as appearance of first bleed.) Do meet a gynecologist and take up a follicular study( alternate day scans from Day 2 to find out the size of the follicle and time of ovulation) If your husband has not taken up anu test then he has to take up a semen analysis Do Brisk walk for atleast 30 mins everyday to resolve the cysts meet a gynecologist for further advice
