Brief Answer:
Weight loss will help you to regularise periods

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You are overweight and hence all these problems. Weight loss will help in regularising periods as well as conceiving early. PCOS women tend to put on weight.

You need to follow regular diet and exercise to reduce weight and thereby regularise periods and also conceive soon.

Also test for thyroid profile as hypothyroidism also causes such problems.

Regards
