Maybe: Pcos can affect fertility in many ways, but the luteal phase is still almost always 12-14 days. It is very common for pcos to affect the accuracy of ovulation predictor kits because your lh is higher than normal, so the test strip can turn positive early, and it is likely to stay positive for days. This could throw off your planning as well. By the way, did you take a pregnancy test?
