Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.It appears from the history that you are suffering from PCOS or polycystic ovarian syn drome where irregular menses, hirsutism and possible polycystic ovaries are a feature. these are present in your case though and hence it is required that you get a ultrasound pelvis to confirm ovarian cysts and hormonal profile to confirm hyperandrogenemia. Obesity is a common manifestation in PCOS and causes increased insulin resistance which causes anovulatory cycles which are the primary cause of infertility. You need to reduce weight first and then have to be placed on low dose OC pills for 6 months to regulate your cycles and bring hormonal control back. You may discuss the options with your Physician and take an informed decision.Hope this helps.Regards
