PCOS and Weight gain

Hello! At thr beginning of this year, I had consulted a doctor for irregular periods problem and she made ne take the PCOD panel test. Although all the levels showed normal in it, my ultrasound showed that I am slightly poly-cystic. I was told to take Meprate for inducing periods and then took APCOD-OBIS for 2 months. Until then, I got periods but once I stopped it, my irreguarity has begun again. I am very heavy for my age around 98 kgs and my height is 5.5. I know that I need to spare time for excercise and proper diet but my work has been hectic for the past 4 months and I couldnt do anything. Now, I want to follow everything strictly so can smeone please advise where I should begin with? How to get my periods fpr this month and how to reduce weight over time??

Normally people with this will have anovlation (no egg release), oligomenorrhea (scanty periods) or even amenorrhea (no menstrual period)....you may also experience pimples, weight gain, excessive hair growth on your body,sometimes even depression and mood swings etc...You should decrease carbohydrate intake, take foods made-up of whole grains like whole wheat bread, Decrease fat intake and increase protein content. Take high fiber diet, fruits, vegetables but avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes. Take plenty of water avoid sugar drinks.....Regarding exercises - start slowly with brisk walking, then change over to jogging, running and other abdominal exercises. Never over strain yourself. And always keep yourself well hydrated and enjoy whatever you do...consult dietitian they will do the needful...and be in a regular fallow up with your gynaecologist.
