Thanks for writing to us.
The delay in the periods that you have is due to polycystic ovaries and not due to pregnancy. Since there is no withdrawal bleeding after hormonal tablets, you need to start with oral pills to regularize your periods.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
