The statement that YOU WILL NOT CONCEIVE is incorrect but the fact is as the age advances,ovarion reserve dwindles and the pregnancy rate declines and coupled with the fact that you are suffering from PCOD,would make it all the more very difficult.
You should start making preparations for pregnancy now because,even now it is not sure that how long it is going to take place before you conceive.
The treatment for PCOD involves giving medicines for regularisation of periods,ovulatory medicines and medicines to reduce insulin resistance.
Besides medicines,other most important part of the treatment is regular exercises and reduction of weight.Even a 10% reduction of your weight results in regularisation of your periods.
Be under the guidance of your doctor regularly and keep taking medicines regularly.
Treatment of PCOD prevents future complications like cardiovascular problems and diabetes.
