Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
PCOS is a condition of basic hormonal imbalance, as the ovaries get studded with multiple cyst like follicles.
There is irregular ovulation and unpredictable cycles.
Weight loss is key as even 5 % weight loss will correct menstrual irregularity.
Metformin will help symptoms.
Consult an infertility specialist and go for follicular monitoring to check if you are ovulating.
If not, ovulation inducing agents like Clomiphene citrate maybe required.
Take care.
