Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Since the two pregnancy tests are negative, pregnancy is not likely. Still, to confirm it, you can get your serum beta HCG levels evaluated.
If the test comes negative and you have already taken regesterone, then you need to take oral contraceptives for 21 days under the guidance of your gynecologist after which your periods are likely to bercome regular. The delay in periods seems to be due to hormonal imbalance caused by PCOD.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Taking a home test will not hgelp. You can get bthe serum beta HCG levels evaluated from a laboratory.
The periods that are overdue may not be related to taking XXXXXXX for two cycles earlier as the effect of these contraceptives is fully reversible and subsides after stopping the pills.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

You suggesting to get the tests done first and if result is negative then do I start taking XXXXXXX again to get periods?

Yes. It is best to get your serum beta HCG evaluated first so that pregnancy is completely ruled out.
After that you can start with XXXXXXX after consulting your gynecologist.
