I am also 25 and I was diagnosed 5 months ago while trying to get pregnant. My doctor put me on birth control for 2 months to regulate my cycle (they were lasting 50 days), followed by 3 months of metformin. I am still not pregnant, so my doctor now has me taking 50mg of metformin as well as Clomid. To find out how to help, your doctor will need to run some blood tests to check hormone levels.
Try not to let it get you down. Being diagnosed with PCOS does not mean that you can't get pregnant. It simply means that you have hormones that are a little out of whack, and your menstral cycle/ovulation are irregular. You can get pregnant, it just may take a while longer than you expected.

I am 24 I have been diagnose with PCOS 1year ago. I will say I have a good dr finally but I have been put on provera to jump start my cycle on day 3 I start taking femara my dr prefer femara because the side affects are not as bad as clomid after I do 5 days of femara on day 12 I go back to the doctor to get a shot to start ovulation. I know it could be a difficult situation but all things are possible I hope I help!!!
