Thanks for the query.
If you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, better to rule out the possibility of pregnancy once before going to withdrawal bleeding.
As sometimes urine pregnancy test kits can give false negatives, you once consult gynecologist and go for blood test for pregnancy or ultrasound.
After ruling out the pregnancy you can take duphaston with your doctor's advice.
By doing ultrasound the possibility of recurrence of PCOS can also be examined.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
