Brief Answer:
No, It is completely useless and unscientific.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to Ask A Doctor Service.

PCOS is a multifactorial genetic disorder. Such disorders can not be cured by any means, let alone some pseudoscience like accupressure.

I would request you to think critically about it, how can the DNA in cells in the ovary be affected by some pressure that is applied on the body?

It is just simply not possible for there to be any benefit.

Please consult and endocrinologist and a gynecologist as in PCOS it is very common to have glucose intolerance (diabetes) as PCOS is a systemic metabolic disorder.

There are numerous studies which have shown that accupressure is absolutely useless in PCOS.

I hope that answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
