Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Here the report indicates that there are multiple cysts in both ovaries. Now what is the problem? In this Polycystic ovarian disease hormonal balance is lost which causes impaired ovulation. It gardually causes irregular periods and infertility. Also you will put on some extra weight and there may be presence of increased hair in body, formation of acne.
So, you have to do a total hormonal profile including FSH,LH, TSH and others and consult a gynaecologist for medication.
