They may have other complications.  Each case is totally different, but one of the issues with PCOS can be that you’re not getting a period consistently, and sometimes the eggs that do “drop” aren’t fully mature and viable.  In that case, you just kind of have less opportunities in a year to get pregnant, so it might take a little longer.  Currently the BC pill helps me with a lot of symptoms, so that’s ok for now.  My doctor advised me to come back before we start trying to have a baby and she will monitor the situation and figure out whether we’ll need the assistance of fertility medication at that time. 

I hate to say it, but the Catch 22 of PCOS (causing weight gain/excessive weight making the condition worse) may be one of the main culprits??  Being over (or under) weight can be a major contributor in not being able to get pregnant even when there’s no other factors.
