I have been seeing my doctor to find out why after 3yrs of trying why I am not getting pregnant and after many tests and scans I have been told that I am not ovulating,but they do not know why.I have been told that I have to loose 3 st before I can have clomide! This is on top of 2st that I have already lost since oct. Is there anything else I can take to help me Ovulate while I keep going with the weight loss?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Not being able to ovulate is an important factor and cause for infertility. Consider discussing with your treating doctor/gynecologist about going ahead with a complete infertility work-up to determine the exact cause for inability to ovulate. Weight loss is also important as increased weight can disturb hormonal balance and cause problems with ovulation.
Focus on the weight loss as directed and continue with treatment as suggested. Sometimes you can conceive without help of ovulation inducers (eg Clomid) with just the current treatment (Metformin that you are taking) and with weight loss (being in ideal weight for height range).
Take care.
