Possible: It is always possible that you may be pregnant when you miss a period. Because you have pcos, it's hard to know if you are pregnant or simply skipping periods. Symptoms of pcos can mimic symptoms of pregnancy as well. If the tests have been negative it is unlikely that you're pregnant. Blood pregnancy tests are more sensitive than urine and can help alleviate your concerns.

Not ovulating: You are most likely not having periods now because you are not ovulating again as before. If you are trying to get pregnant, see your gynecologist for possible ovulation induction.
