You to go for home pregnancy test to start with for confirming/excluding pregnancy (for unexpected ovulation is possible ). Hope the test would be + ve. But even if it is not. Don't be disheartened. Methodical investigations and treatment can overcome the hurdle in conception.

Examination by an expert gynecologist along with USG scans/hormonal assay/insulin resistance test are the investigations usually done. Treatment is by control of weight (exercises & medicines like glycophage)/ovulation stimulation to reduce the ovarian. Volume/drilling surgery to remove immature ovums from ovary and reduce ovarian volume. (Which automatically reverses the hormonal imbalance causing spontaneous ovulation).

Choice of treatment is done by treating gynecologist. so you should be under expert care to get rid of the problem.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
