PCOD is a syndrome which is characterised by increased insulin resistance and a normal to increased amount of luteinizing hormone.You should continue your thyroid medicine.Regarding Crimson 35 you should stop this to become pregnant as this is a oral contraceptive and as long as you take this you will not become pregnant.You should continue metformin which is given to you to help you reduce your weight as it suppresses the appetite.The cysts in your ovary will decrease only when your weight is brought down to the ideal weight for your height {(height in cms-100)*0.92}.For this along with metformin you have to do exercises like running on a treadmill for an hour or so and abdominal crunches.You can take fruits like papaya as a meal once daily.You should drink 2 litres of water daily.After conceiving you should take an ultrasound in the 6th week of pregnancy in consultation with a gynaecologist as early abortions are common in PCOD.You need not wait for all the cysts to disappear before becoming pregnant
