In PCOD there is hormone problem which causes problem in menstruation and sometimes even ovulation. There will be associated Diabetes for which your Doctor gave you Glyciphage. You should keep your blood sugar in control by regular testing. Avoid much rice, sweets, frequent tea and coffee with sugar, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do brisk walking everyday for 40 minutes to improve your diabetic condition. Irregular periods means there is still some hormone problem, Better to consult your Gynaecologist who would usually put you back on the Birth control tablet because it will make your cycles regular and increase chances of conceiveing child. In case there is ovulation problem there are other medicines which are given to induce ovulation but only once the Birth control pills regularise your cycles and you can conceive. Better to take the tablets as long as your Doctor said.
