HI!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to start reading up on PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome.  If you don't have a regular cycle, it is because you are not ovulating regularly.  PCOS is the name we use, but there are many different causes.  Being overweight is the most common reason, and losing even 10% of a person's body weight can be helpful.
The good news is that the treatment is similar and usually just involves taking some medications to help you ovulate.
Once you get your blood work back, your doctor will likely prescribe something like Clomid +/- Metformin.
Good luck!
Dr B
