Thanks for the query.

-in poly cystic ovarian disease menstrual abnormalities like anovulation, delayed or absent periods etc can be seen,

-in case of anovulation usually ovulation induction drugs are needed for fertility, your doctor might have told that in different way.

-in case of irregular periods it is difficult to judge the date of conception.

-according to your gestational age it is 77 days from today approximately,

-as first trimester ultrasound can show gestational age with +/-3 to 4 days of actual gestational age,

-according to scan you might have conceived around April 28 +/- 3 to 4 days, means in between 24th April to 2nd May.

-it suggests that after having period in March, you might have ovulated around these days.

-if you match your day of fruitful coitus with these days you can find out the day of conception.

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.
