Loosing weight is very important to regain fertility in a patient of PCOS.
It is said that even if you are able to shed 10% of your weight,you hall be able to get your periods back.
To shed weight
Take low carbohydrate and high protein diet
Do regular aerobic exercises like brisk walking or swimming or cycling
And you should take medicines to balance your body hormones like birth control pills

The most important aspect of treatment is use of insulin sensitising medicine called as METFORMIN.
Since patients of PCOS have incresed insulin resistance ,you need METFORMIN to reduce the insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance causes a build up of insulin and sugar levels in the blood which results in
Increased production of male hormones in body.
These increased levels of male hormones result in acne,infertility and WEIGHT GAIN.

You must consult a dietician for the desired result as you are already 30 years and getting old as far as issue of pregnancy is concerned.
Consult a Gynecologist or a physician and start taking METFORMIN 500 mg twice a day,under his advise.
