In brief: Insulin management

Metformin or other drugs that increase your body's sensitivity to insulin are frequently used.
Oral contraceptives can also be used to regulate periods but are contraindicated in your case due to the increased risk of clots and your antiphospholipid syndrome. At one time, "ovarian drilling" where surgically many of the cysts are burned with an electrocautery or ovarian wedge resection was common.
