In brief: It depends

There are 2 types of pcos - genetic and lifestyle induced.
One doesn't get over genetic pcos (one can control it), while pcos induced by poor lifestyle choices can be overcome with proper diet, exercise, and weight loss.

In brief: No

Sorry 'no, ' pcos is a genetic predisposition.
If a correct diagnosis has been made it is for lifetime. On the brighter side many symptoms and quality-of-life issues related to pcos can (often) be improved with home interventions such as weight-loss, and with medication.
