Pcod or polycystic ovarian disease cannot be completely cured by any medicines.pcod is characterised by delayed periods,obesity and hirsuitism.birth control pills or oral contraceptices help regularise periods but only as long as they are taken.
Birth control pills can be taken as long as she wants but she has to stop them once trying for pregnancy.
One cannot get pregnant when on these pills.
People with pcod might have some difficulty in getting pregnant.some conceive on their own where as others require help in the form of medicines.
This is because patients of pcod have irregular cycles and hence do not know when they are ovulating.
Weight should be under control in patients with pcod.pcod worsens with weight gain.
