hi XXXXXXX
thanks for the query.
polycystic ovary syndrome causes menstrual irregularity and anovulation is one of them.
in anovulation there will be deficiency of progesterone that is why your doctor prescribed susten to you.
it will help to maintain the luteal phase of cycle and after stopping it will lead to withdrawal bleeding.
in case of pregnancy, susten will also help in implantation of zygote and maintenance of pregnancy.

as your periods are delayed for 20 days and as per your symptoms there is possibility of pregnancy,
in case of pregnancy now it will be around 7 weeks, so you once consult gynecologist and get examined, take pregnancy test and one ultrasound which will rule out the possibility of pregnancy.
if pregnancy is there you can follow with regular antenatal checkups,
if not you take tablets for withdrawal bleeding with your doctor's advice.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
take care.

hi XXXXXXX

if you are sure of your dates,
you first go for blood test for pregnancy which will detect levels of HCG and by this pregnancy can be confirmed,
then you undergo ultrasound examination which will tell you the age of gestation.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
take care.
