Hi!
If you were my patient, the next thing I would do is to try a cycle of oral contraceptive pills.
I would want to know if they would give you a period.  If everything is normal, they should.
If you DID NOT have a period with oral contraceptives, I would be concerned about Asherman's syndrome which is scarring of the uterus which can be caused by infection or surgery.  Asherman's is very rare and PCOS is very common, so I would put my money on the first diagnosis.
Hope this helps!
