PCOS is a syndrome which is multifactorial and involves a hormonal imbalance in the body.Due to imbalance of hormones,there is no ovulation hence,difficulty in getting pregnant.PCOS involves many organs in the body.More than 90%of the time,medication is required to help in conception. You need to improve your diet so that you can control your weight.Lose weight if you are over weight and take a balanced diet. Apart from that,not much else can be done. That will to a certain extent help in controlling the hormone levels.But ovulation induction might very well be needed with medication. Only diet may not help.You should consult your specialist if you want a pregnancy soon because some tests will need to be done to form a baseline.
