Maybe : The definition of pcos is amenorrhea or lack of menstrual cycle. I'm not sure quite what you mean by "try to ovulate"? It's definitely the case that women with pcos might have long episodes of amenorrhea followed by an ovulation. Thus a woman with pcos can become pregnant at any time if having unprotected intercourse.
