In brief: Weight loss
The usual treatment for pcos is cycle control with birth control pills.
However, the majority of women with pcos are overweight, and weight loss will return the cycles to normal in the majority of them. While weight loss may not be easy, it is quite effective in normalizing the menstrual cycle for those who are able to lose in the range of 30 pounds.
