Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us with your health query.
As you do have a history of delayed cycles, I would advice to wait a week more before taking a pregnancy test.
Please repeat the pregnancy test after a week.
You might be having pre menstrual symptoms or an absent / very scanty period with spotting.
If this is a rule, then please have a complete gynecological evaluation.
Causes such as stress, travelling, weight gain, anxiety can cause this.
Rule out thyroid hormone disorders, polycystic ovaries and endometrial hyperplasia - this entails a visit to your gynecologist.
Please do mention your age, and previous menstrual and obstetric history so that I can assist you better.
All the best.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Detailed Answer:
With a history of PCOS, do not worry.
Delayed and scanty periods are the norm .
If you do not plan a pregnancy, then do not worry.
Weight loss and lifestyle management will help.
Consult your gynecologist to rule out diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, vitamin D deficiency and endometrial hyperplasia - all are common with PCOS.
Metformin maybe started to control symptoms.
As cycles are irregular, ovulation is erratic and cannot be predicted, so please repeat the pregnancy test after a week.
