Are delayed periods after taking Duphaston a positive symptom of pregnancy?

My wife and I are trying for a baby but failed due to my low sperm motility and abnormal shape. Last year, we went to IVF, which was a success at first but led to miscarriage due to no heart bit.
Now, we are trying for the second IVF. After one week of Duphaston, her period is now late for three days and she is yellow in color, cold-handed and seems not in good shape. I want to know if it can be a positive pregnancy? She is 31, PCOS with high prolactin level.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Withdrawal bleeding is observed 3-7 days after completion of hormone treatment. She will have to wait for a few more days to see if she gets a period. However, the fact that she is yellow in color and seems to be unwell calls for further clinical evaluation. Check for any jaundice, other infections etc. and plan proper management. Maintain adequate rest and fluid balance. Pregnancy test can be done after a couple of days. You can also opt for the blood test for an earlier clarification. Hope this helps.

I took Duphaston for 10 days, 2 tablets a day from 5th March till 15 March. It has been 6 days ahead and i have got no period. Usually i get period after 2 or 3 days of the last duphaston tablet. I am having PCOS. My prolaction level also came very high that is 131.5 ng/ml. What causes delay in my period even after taking Duphaston? Could i be pregnant? Bcz my gyni told me to wait and check if i am preg or not. Though i don t have any pregnancy symptoms but just abdominal cramps. Plz answer as soon as possible.
