Thanks for the query.
Increase in weight can lead to PCOD, by affecting the hormonal balance.
Decrease in weight, even half kg can help to some extent in correcting the hormonal levels.
So don't loose hope and keep trying.
Benforce M contains metformin.
It is used to treat the insulin resistance in PCOD.
As per the available studies it is not having adverse effects on fertility.
So, you can use that.
For more details you can ask me directly through the premium forum.
Take care.
