Not likely: You must've been taking a progestin medication. If you have a PCOS, you are not likely ovulating, so it's unlikely you are pregnant. If you are not want to get pregnant you might want to consider birth control pills. This will regulate your cycle and help with some of the side effects of PCOS like the regular cycles and abnormal hair growth.
