Hi. I am new to the forum. I am 27 and have PCOS and hypothyroidism, my husband has low sperm/motility. I recently just had one failed IUI and an attempted IUI. My follies are just not getting more mature. SO the doctor wants to try the combination treatment, with clomid, FSH shots and HCG. Does anyone have experience with this? And I stopped taking my metformin, would it help if I started taking it again? Any advice on this is much appreciated!!

I do not have personal experience with that protocol, but it sounds like your doctor has a plan that s/he feels will work best for you. Just make sure you stay hydrated, as any stimulation in girls with PCOS could result in Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. Sports drinks with electrolytes are good to help prevent OHSS.
As far as the Metformin goes, if your doctor has diagnosed you with Insulin Resistance, it might be beneficial, but of course s/he would know if you will have better success on it. I firmly believe in asking lots of questions to make sure you understand the treatment protocol. Their job is to help you understand.
Best of luck!
