Every month your ovary forms a cyst that ruptures and releases and egg thereby allowing you to get pregnant. When a woman has PCOS, those cysts don't rupture, but instead keep accumulating. She may ovulate some months and not others, all the while her ovaries are becoming covered with these cysts. Without ovulation, pregnancy cannot occur. And since this affects hormones as well, even when she does ovulate, it may be irregular and still difficult to conceive.
