In brief: Good chance

Some women with PCOS have no issues getting pregnant without meds and sometimes, metformin is used to help conceive, which is seen as a diabetic med more than fertility.

In brief: Little chance.

Some women with polycystic ovary syndrome will ovulate (release a mature egg) occasionally , others do not ever ovulate.
In order to conceive, sperm must find and fertilize a mature egg . So ovulation is a must.
