When in doubt: just check pregnancy test. And if you are still late and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. With PCOS your periods are irregular anyway even without any pregnancy interruption on board. If you have an endocrinologist or GYN doctor please consult with them as they know your PCOS well.

PCOS: The underlying problem here is PCOS. This causes irregular periods thus requiring you to seek fertility help. Since PCOS causes a lack of ovulation irregular periods are expected. Since your IUI was not successful you will need to schedule a follow up visit with the fertility doctor to discuss the next steps.
