Dear sravani, welcome to healthcare magic.
If you have irregular cycles, ultrasound picture of polycystic ovaries, 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. There is no evidence that APCOD is usefull in such cases but it will not harm.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
Thank you,
Wish you good health.
