Thanks for posting query.
PCOD is a chronic medical condition which can be kept under control if you wish too. A strict lifestyle change and treatment combined with regular follow ups with a competent gynecologist.

Treatment is individualized as per the presenting symptoms. Both medical drugs or laparoscopy or both can be the treatment in a typical PCOD patient. In general women who do not want to get pregnant are treated with birth control pills – this most often corrects hormone imbalances, regulate your menstrual cycle and, cut down on abnormal hair growth and acne. Those who wish to get pregnant are treated with ovulation induction drugs such as clomifene, tamoxifen and gonadotropins. Weight management is most important in both the cases.

Insulin-sensitizing drugs (ISDs), such as metformin, are now being used by specialists as treatments for polycystic ovary syndrome. Many PCOS women who didn't initially respond to a fertility drug responded to it after treatment with an insulin-promoting drug

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Get yourself examined by a Gynecologist. Your Doctor may prescribe you Metformin to make your periods regular. Schedule regular check ups, Making healthy-eating choices and getting regular exercise is the first treatment approach, if you are overweight reduce your weight.Weight loss can reduce both insulin and androgen levels, and may restore ovulation. Eat fiber rich fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Kindly have patience and stick to your treatment plan.
Good Luck.
