Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You can continue the medicines as your Doctor advises as your period is getting regular now. Get your blood sugar tested regularly to see that it is in normal range. Remember diabetes will not improve unless you avoid excess carbohydrate diet, much of rice, dosas, idlis, fried food, fatty food. Eat plenty of vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Exercise to lose weight and become fit is the key to help drastically reduce the symptoms of PCOD. Get your hormones tested in time, even your thyroid hormones as high prolactin for which you are taking bromocriptine could be associated with hypothyroidism as well, which may explain weight gain also. Do not delay. Go for your regular checkups and get adequate treatment to help cure you. Once your cycles are regular in a row you can plan to conceive by proper monitoring of ovulation and having sex on the right days to increase chances of conception. You can discuss these aspects with your Doctor to get full benefit.
