Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Yes, with PCOS, you can get pregnant. At times no medication is required. At other times you may need some treatment. There are various approaches to treat a polycystic ovary. First of all insulin resistance has to be checked and corrected by a dose of metformin. Then regular check ups have to be scheduled and you put on low dose birth control pills to regularize the cycles first. Once this is corrected, regular ultrasounds will be done to assess the status of the ovum and accordingly drugs prescribed. At times laparoscopy is done and cysts punctured.

Diet and weight control are also important part of therapy and you need to be under a good nutrition expert. Since a confirmed treatment modality cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
