Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Assuming an average height, your BMI (based on weight and height) indicates that you are still significantly overweight. While you have made huge strides in terms of getting your weight under control, the effect of PCOS is still present, and you might still experience some irregularity in terms of your cycle. While continuing to try to reach your ideal body weight, you might need medications to induce a ovulation. You should talk to your doctor about this and see if they are comfortable using these medications with you. I would follow your doctors recommendations. I have no doubt that you stand a good chance at achieving a pregnancy in the near future.

I hope that this helps and good luck!!
