  • The pills will make you have a period, but they will not cure PCOS. It might be a good idea for you to see an endocrinologist. I have PCOS and the pill made me have periods, but I still have PCOS. Yes, it is still possible for someone with PCOS to have a baby. Sometimes all it takes is dietary changes, sometimes Metformin will do the trick, and some women take Clomid. I was taking Metformin when I became pregnant. I still take it and it has made a huge difference in helping to lessen the symptoms. Check out It's my favorite PCOS web site. Great information and support there.
