Hello Madam
Let me clear one thing as , irregular bleeding , scanty menses , over weight acne ( excessive) , are an indication in a female ( young age group 16-35 years ) that she may have a disease namely Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease ( PCOD ) .
P C O D is the main cause of infertility in female, irregular bleeding , obesity ( as irregular period and over weight present in your case) .
So metben ( metformin+ benfotiamine ) is a perfect choice in the treatment of pcod , hence this drug will try to regulate your period , that's why your doctor prescribed this drug .
Folic acid is only an IRON supplement and nothing to do for conception.
Your doctor thinks that you may have PCOD so he prescribed this drug .
Ultrasound will confirm pcod.
Consult your treating doctor and get his opinion.
Good luck.
