In brief: PCOS Treatment

Diet and exercise are 1st treatments for PCOS.
Medicines are reserved for those with anovulation, hirsutism, and menstrual irregularities. These include oral contraceptives, metformin, prednisone, leuprolide, clomiphene, and spironolactone. A reproductive endocrinologist should be consulted if you are infertile and desire pregnancy.

In brief: Yes

the first medicine to try is metformin which helps encourage ovulation; if that does not work ovulation induction is sometimes necessary with clomid (clomiphene) and/ or other drugs.
the issue with pcos is that women are often anovulatory. if you are overweight, weight loss can also help encourage the body to ovulate
