Thanks for the query.

Treatment of choice for patients with PCOS is with clomifene citrate. You have high chance of conception since you are only 29 years old.

During 6 cycles of clomifene and HCG , chances of pregnancy are as high as 25-30%.
So have patience and continue your doctors prescription.

I recommend you to:
1. Reduce your weight at least by 5%. This itself will increase your pregnancy chances by 50%.
2. Have a balanced diet.
3. Start taking folic acid regularly.
4. Moderate exercise. Make sure you exercise daily for 50 minutes.
5 Be positive and stress free.

Wish you good luck,
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further questions.
