Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Metformin is generally used for diabetes but it's off label uses include treatment for PCOS. 

One of the prime symptoms for PCOS is lack of periods or very regular periods and this seems to be the case with you.

It doesn't seem like the metformin is working in this respect. Talk to doctor about this and see if you can try something else or maybe adjust the dosage. At the moment it's not possible to calculate ovulation.
