Medication suggested.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Yes, duphaston may regulate your menstrual cycle.
You can take it from the 15th to 25th day of your cycle every month, three tablets daily , depending on your body weight.
generally you would then bleed after stopping the pill on the 25th day.
Best is to have a prescription from your doctor with the details.
And again take it on the same days the next month.
Losing weight will obviously help with PCOS control.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.
