In brief: PCOD treatment

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to get rid of pcos.
Moreover, overweight patients may not ovulate regularly. However, it isn't a disease you can cure. Still, managing the effects may minimize your need for intervention and aggressive treatment, especially if it is associated with being overweight. You should talk to a specialist to help with a program to manage your weight and pcos.

In brief: Call your doctor

It's always important to work with the specialist in the field of pcos to better assist you on answering your questions.
They know the latest research, and medications, and integrative approaches that would work beautifully for you. Also enlist the advice of a clinical nutritionist who specializes in this, perhaps referred by the pcos center near you, so that you're eating foods that will support you to lose weight.
