Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
This is wrong that patients having PCOD , become obese and diabetic .
This is a misconception and rather obese are more prone to PCOD & diabetes.
According to your height your weight is perfect so need not to worry.
As far concerned duration of treatment , it depends upon may factors as,
general condition of patient.
Level of estrogen,
level of F S H/ L H,
Position of follicles in ovary,
level of testosterone in blood.
So consult your doctor and get regular treatment.
Hope I have answered your question.
If further any question I will help.
