HI!
IF you were my patient, and wanted natural methods of combating PCOS I would have to recommend diet and exercise.  Losing even 10lb can be enough to regulate your cycle and improve your chances of conception.  Additionally, losing weight is important for good pregnancy outcomes and also for the baby--traits like obesity and type 2 diabetes can be transmitted to a child from the mother.
Sorry to say so, but diet and exercise is your best answer!
