Brief Answer:
Ovulation induction may be required

Detailed Answer:
If you had been diagnosed with PCOS then most important thing you require is treatment with a biguanide(metformin) and check for your ovulation process with the help of mid-cycle USG or ovulation kits.

If ovulation is defective,which is the basic pathology in PCOS, then patient cannot conceive by any method untill it is corrected.

If it is good, then you can conceive by both the methods.
