Hello,

With PCOD, you need to take low carbohydrate diet, control body wt by regular exercise and take supportive medication. It will help to improve fertility and regularize period.

1) Yes, you become pregnant. For this, regularization of period is must with proper ovulation. Please continue prescribed medication to normalize prolactin level.

2) Yes, irregular period become regular with proper medication and life style changes.

3) Take low carbohydrate diet with complete avoidance of fast/ fatty/ junk foods and control body wt. Drink more fluids and eat fresh vegetables.

4) Abnormal hair growth occurs due to high androgen level. Anti-androgenic drug, laser therapy can eliminate this problem. Consult with your doctor.

Hope, it helps for you.
