In brief: Depends

Pregnancy itself does not affect pcos.
If you have put on excessive weight and do not take it off, the pcos can be worse. If you have adopted healthier eating habits and continue these postpartum, it could be improved. Pcos is often improved dramatically with exercise and weight loss.
