In brief: Yes

It may be more difficult and you may require medical intervention, but Insulin resistant women may be able to conceive on their own also.

In brief: PCOS

Insulin resistence is a hallmark of poly cystic ovarian syndrome.
Women with pcos typically don't ovulate, or ovulate infrequently.. This is what makes it difficult for them to get pregnant without help. But there is help, and most of those with pcos can conceive. During your pregnancy you will be evaluated for gestational diabetes and, if you have it, will be treated to control sugars.
