You are already doing good. Yoga asanas for PCOS include Kayakalpa, Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide legged forward Bend), Nispanda Bhava (unmoving observations) and Shavasana (corpse pose). You should consult a Yoga expert before practising any inversion poses.
Along with physical activity, are you watching your diet?

You are going great! Just take care of invert postures,consult a yoga expert for that . Have protein,zinc,vitamin c rich diet.Some habits can also be modified to enhance your results for respective cause
Recent studies have shown that practicing Yoga may have a positive impact as a therapy for chronic health conditions. Yoga as a therapy would not treat infertility itself but will be helpful in treating fertility problems that might be caused by a common malady: chroinc stress.
Asanas like Kayakalpa, Nispanda Bhava,Padollanasana and Shavasana are very helpful. But these should be done under the supervision of a Yoga trainer,who can tell you about the right way of doing the asanas(i.e. how to control your breath).And ofcourse a balanced diet plays a very important part in achieving your goal.
