In brief: Yes

Pcos is not a reason to abstain from intercourse.
Some women find sex a bit more uncomfortable, but most do not. You should see you doctor for the severe abdominal pain.

In brief: Need Evaluation

In general dub and pcos should not cause severe abdominal pain.
You may need to see a specialist so they can figure out a diagnosis. But with those 2 problems there is no reason you can't have sex.
