Our expert says:
Cysts develop because of anovulation, which means that the egg is not released. There is no physical obstruction. However, patients with PCOS tend to have a very thick capsule, which makes it a little more difficult for ovulation to take place. There are no known causes of poly cystic ovaries. However it is a complex metabolic problem. PCO is usually for life and there is no cure at present. The treatment would be, if you were intending to fall pregnant, the use of ovulation induction medication. And yes, the PCOS will still be present in the post partum period.
