Dear chereil2001,
It seems that you have polycystic ovaries by the ultrasound picture, if you have excessive hair growth in your body, and serum LH > FSH, so you have polycystic ovary syndrome.
This syndrome doesn't prevent pregnancy but it only delays it or makes it difficult by the normal marital life.
It has short term (irregular cycles, acne, hirsutism and delayed pregnancy) and long term (impaired glucose tolerance, obesity, high blood pressure and liability for endometrial cancer if not treated) consequences.
My first advice is to loose weight and optimize your Body mass index as this sole advice may completely cure your problem and you can have regular cycles and normal pregnancy.
Then you should start regular visits with your doctor in order to give you induction of ovulation and put a plan for you in order to get pregnant.
I hope this piece of information is useful to you and I wish you the best of luck.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
