Here are some basic principles which every PCO patient needs to learn.

Firstly, you should plan to get 12 periods every year. There's no point in waiting week after week for the period to come on its own - you are just wasting time and adding to your anxiety levels. Every time you miss your period, you are hopeful that you are pregnant at last.

Having irregular periods reduces your fertility ( because you cannot get pregnant until you induce a period). 
How do you induce a period ? It's very simple - all you need to do is to take a 5-day course of a natural hormone called progesterone. This is available in many forms .One of the safest is medroxyprogesterone acetate ( MPA ). Pharma companies sell this drug under many brand names which are  include: Provera; Deviry; and Regesterone. The dose is 10 mg, twice a day, for 5 days. You only need to take 10 tablets- and your period will start about 2-7 days after taking the last tablet. This is called a progesterone withdrawal bleed. By taking this, you are just mimicking nature, which means it's very safe to do this every month.

Remember that while this is effective for regularising your periods, it will not help you to have a baby. This is because all the progesterone does is induce a period - it does not help you to ovulate. If you want a baby, you will also need ovulation induction treatment.

reduce your weight and do regular good amount of exercises.

Take METFORMIN 500 mg twice a day.

Although I have explained you the details but still you have to consult a doctor and take regular treatment from her with discipline.
Pregnancy will definitely take place,but you have to be patient as it may take long time.
