Brief Answer:
Delayed Ovulation likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

PCOS is associated with delayed ovulation. Hence pregnancy occurs little later than normal ovulation in some women.

I suggest you repeat pregnancy test after a week.

All the best.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Regards
