In brief: No, but it helps
Weight reduction in pcos(ploycyctic ovarian syndrome) often helps to decrease the likelyhood of diabetes development and assist spontaneous ovulation to help decrease the length of menstrual period cycle intervals.
However, weight reduction alone will not "get rid of pcos".

In brief: PCO and weight loss
Weight loss will resolve the majority of polycystic ovary disease; strive for a waist size less than 34 inches and a body mass index of less than 30.
Have doctor send you to the dietician to work out a plan.
