Ovulation difficulty: This condition is becks a woman doesn't predictably ovulate. So getting pregnant may be more difficult. Sometimes fertility drugs are needed to resolve this problem during pregnancy some of these women are more likely to get gestational diabetes. All of this can be managed by good care before conception and during the pregnancy. Weight loss, good nutrition, and exercise can help too.

No: Many women with pcos become pregnant, in fact almost all. But depending on your periods you may need some fertility treatment. So proper diagnosis and evaluation is important to figure out the best way to proceed. But easy to treat in most women.
