In brief: Treatable

Pcos is quite common and we're able to treat it.
There's pills, but a big help is fitness. If your physician agrees, make it a point to find some form of real exercise that you enjoy and a few good folks who like it as well and will become your exercise buddies. "sisterhood is powerful", and your female friends -- some of whom may also have pcos -- will be a great resource.
