Brief Answer:
Metformin is for managing glucose metabolism, common in PCOS

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Ask a Doctor Service,

After going through your question I suspect your doctor might have diagnosed you with PCOS (polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).

This condition is primarily a metabolic disorder charectrised by abnormal glucose metabolism, abnormal hair growth, irregular periods and abnormal hormones.

Higher than normal levels or testosterone is the primary driving force behind most of the abnormalities seen in this condition.

In addition to managing the irrgular periods, managing the full spectrum of metabolic derangements is a must in this condition, hence your doctor might have prescribed metformin.

But metformin is not sufficient, appropriate antiandrogen medication is also neccesary.

Please consult your doctor again and discuss the diagnosis and the available treatment options best suited in your case,

I hope that clears your doubts.

You are welcome to ask me if you have any more doubts.

Best wishes
