Dear Malini,
Weight loss and metformin is the best treatment to regulate cycles and resume ovulation and is successful in 50 to 70% cases. But ovulation does not guarantee pregnancy. You must loose about 25 to 30 kg weight for this. If ovulation induction with clomid and IUI has not been successful then chances of pregnancy are best with ART and IVF. It is possible for you to get pregnant by ART and IVF. Obesity causes a lot of complications in pregnancy so you must try to loose weight.
