Brief Answer:
Reports suggest PCOD.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mrs XXXXXXX thanks for trusting health care magic.
Your history and reports are suggestive of PCOS.
It is an endrinological disease which affects all levels of menstruation, conception and pregnancy.
But the main problem these patients experience are weight gain and infertility.
But it is not a mandatory that you will have infertility in future.
In my opinion you should get a transvaginal ultrasound to see for status of ovaries and in case ovaries are polycystic it will confirm our diagnosis.

Take care. In case you have other questions you can contact me directly on http://bit.ly/drmanishajain
