hello all

i am new to PCOS. i was just diagnosed after trying to conceive for 6 months. i was not getting a period for 7 weeks at a time. i took provera to force a period to come. the period came and i took my clomid on day 5-9. i took a ovulation test and it showed i ovulated on the 12th day. i took a pregnancy test after i missed my period. the test came back negative. i am waiting for my period to come again, but its 6 days late. my question is, "will i get a period on my own (without provera) if i ovulated?" or do i need provera again.

If you ovulated you will either get your period or be pregnant. Were you only using OPKs to detect ovulation? Unfortunately OPKs don't really tell you that you ovulated, only that you are most likely about to. The detect a surge of LH which normally appears 12-48 hours before ovulation. However sometimes you have a surge of LH but you don't actually ovulate. If this happens your body may try again later with another LH surge and you end up ovulating later than expected. In that case your period isn't really "late" technically. It's also possible that you just won't ovulate at all in that cycle so you would need provera again. If you don't chart your temperature there's not really an accurate way to tell if/when you ovulated.
