PCOD is a symptom complex comprising of irregular or absent ovulation, multiple cysts in the ovaries, irregular or absent periods, infertility, obesity, hirsutism, abnormal lipid profile and insulin resistance. The cause is imbalance of the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis. Weight loss of about 15% itself can correct the hormonal imbalance in many cases. Melmet contains Metformin and is the preferred drug to treat insulin resistance in PCOD. It regulated blood sugar and helps ovulation. As your sonogram report shows endometrium is normal (thickness depends on the stage of menstrual cycle). You can get pregnant with proper monitoring and induction of ovulation. You should take plenty of fluids, fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid fatty foods. Please consult your doctor for further suggestions. Good luck.
