Thanks for your query,

PCOS is a pretty common condition nowadays.The main problem with this is infertility and diabetes.If your blood sugar is normal then thats good news.Since you have been taking treatment for PCOS since 6 mths,your periods are regular.That is also good news.PCOS remains throughout life but it can be managed with medication.Weight gain,as i am sure you know,is a common symptom.Also with high blood sugar,you can gain weight.If you havent had your blood sugar checked,please do.
Now about pregnancy,many people do have kids with PCOS.The pregnancy needs to be planned and you might need the help of a gynaecologist.If you are ready to start a family,then you should start planning the pregnancy now.
You may need ovulation induction drugs to help in conception.Continue with the other drugs you are taking.
Regularizing your cycles was the first step.
Next would be ovulation induction with drugs.
So see a gynecologist about that.
The low bp shouldn't be related to this.But if you are having heavy blood loss,then anemia should be ruled out as it can cause low bp.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.

Glad to hear you again.

If all your symptoms are under control, then you can plan your pregnancy (if you are ready for a family). By symptoms I mean regular periods and controlled blood sugar.

You need to undergo ovulation study. This determines whether you are ovulating or not. You can get this test done through your doctor. If you are not ovulating, then you will be prescribed ovulation induction drugs.

If want to try naturally, you can attempt that for a couple of months first before seeing a doctor. Count day 1 as the first day of your menses. In a regular 28 day cycle the fertile days would be between day 11-16. So intercourse during these days are more fruitful. If you do not concieve after a few months, then you will require the help of the fertility specialist. I'm afraid I cannot give you any names in Delhi now. But if I come across good experts, I will pass them on to you.

Wish you good health and success.
