PCOD is definitely a big problem with most of the females but a patient approach definitely bears fruit to the patient.  

For PCOD,The most important treatment apart from ovulation induction medicine and hormonal treatment  is,shedding your weight and being in your normal BMI range and other treatment is to take care of your insulin resistance
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.  

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. 
You must consult a Gynecologist and get all the required investigations and proper treatment done. 
You shall definitely get pregnant,although timing can't be predicted. 
Best of luck
