Well, these are ultrasound pics of polycystic ovaries.This is a disorder of ovulation.Well after performing a semen analysis of your husband and testing the patency of your tubes either by HSG or a laparoscopy with chromoperubation, I think you can go for ovulation induction by drugs and follicular study.If you are obese, i think you should go for a weight reduction.
good luck. bye.

Infertility Specialist Dr. Dattaprasad's  Response
If you have regular periods (& you can confirm ovulation in one of the cycles), you need not worry about ultrasound findings. Normally when a woman is having regular menstrual cycle of around 28-30 days she makes on follicle (which contains one egg) in one of the ovaries. The follicle ruptures to release egg around midcycle(14th day). If you had intercourse around that time, sperm will reach the egg, fertilize it & embryo (baby)is formed. In women with irregular cycles, they are not forming follicles to release egg monthly & need medicines to do that.
Regarding your infertility problem, its better to go (you & your husband both) to specialist, get investigations done & get proper treatment.
Wish you good health.
