i have a friend who has had PCOS for a long time, about 10 years. I am 28 and around your same weight, which is completely fine. you are not overweight at all so i don't think losing the weight will make it go away unless your doctor suggested so. mostly my friend tries to exercise and eat healthy. she also was on birth control for a while. maybe you want to try the laparoscopy. i had it 3 months ago for endometriosis and it's not all that bad. good luck and i wish you all the best

No, there is no permanent cure.  I am 5'10" 130 lbs and I have known I had pcos since summer of '07.( i was 120lbs when I found out)  There is no cure, but you can take measures to reduce the effects it has on you.  Having a healthy BMI, lifestyle and eating habits can help reduce the symptoms of PCOS.  Also there are some herbal suppliments and some people swear by accupuncture.
If you become active and eat healthier you increase your chances of being able to become pregnant naturally.  You also decrease your other symptoms other than just fertility, like weight, more normal periods, less pain, etc
GOOD LUCK! and SSBD to you!!

PCOS has, unfortunately, been linked to a higher risk of miscarriage... I've heard as high as 45%.  Most miscarriages, though, are a result of chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus and basically your body "expels" it b/c it does not consider it a viable pregnancy. Best wishes :)
