The ultrasound picture suggest PCOS- that is polycystic ovary syndrome. This occurs due to hormonal imbalance in body leading to irregular ovulation or anovulation which is one of the causes for infertility.
If you are overweight, you should try to reduce your weight with proper diet and exercise.
Along with that these medication given to you will help in growth of the eggs and ovulation.
The growth of the eggs can be monitored using serial ultrasound scans.
Hope to have cleared your doubts.
Take care and good luck.
