Egg sharing with polycystic ovaries?

Hi I am 23 with two kids and want to do the egg share scheme. I have no family history of anything and my BMI is in the healthy range. But I do have polycystic ovaries. Am I still able to do the egg share? Also what are my chances of IVF working first time? My husband's sperm is good if that helps.
