Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Metformin helps to reduce insulin resistance, if present, and also helps in weight reduction.This drug improves ovulation and leads to regular menstrual cycles. Continue them.

Clomiphene citrate helps in ovulation induction, should be taken in first half of cycle under a qualified gynecologists guidance. Ultrasound monitoring of follicle development and detection of ovum release helps to have intercourse on day of ovulation, which helps chances of conception.

If medical line of management is not helpful, then ovarian drilling helps in release of ovum.

weight reduction, Healthy diet and regular exercise are very helpful.

Hope this helps you.
