Thanks for posting your query.

Dysmenorrhea can be associated with polycystic ovaries (PCOS), but in dysmenorrhea a dull cramping pain known to occur and not burning sensation.

Based on your description, the burning sensation is highly, highly unlikely to be related to PCOS; nor does it have any association to the fact that you had a delayed period.

As you are already taking enough analgesics like paracetamol & ibuprofen, there is no need to take additional dose of mefenamic acid for pain. You can take it if a heavy bleeding occurs.

I hope your query has been answered. I will be available for your further queries.
