    It's possible to pass it on but you don't always do. I don't think there is any way to prevent PCOS since it's a hormone disorder, or maybe they haven't figured out HOW to solve it yet?

    One of the reason I worried about having a daughter is that I could pass it to her. I actually got mine from my father. Both of his sisters have it and hes a carrier. one of my half sisters also has it. one does not.

    stormy is right, alot of the time it comes from the fathers side.. in my case i got it from both! With 7 aunts and uncles only one female cousin has PCOS yet 2 others have had hysterectomys for various reasons in their 30s.
