PCOS: Try eating a low glycemic index diet. If you're not your ideal weight, attempt to lose weight to help you better ovulate. Letrozole maybe helpful when Clomid (clomiphene) has failed to induce anovulation. Also adding metformin would be very helpful.

You ovulated: Clomid (clomiphene) really does not have a residual effect, so if you had a second period it's likely a spontaneous ovulation.
