I stopped taking the contraceptive pill 6 months ago Since,

Patient : I stopped taking the contraceptive pill 6 months ago. Since, I have not had any periods and have developed bad acne. My GP conducted blood tests, the results of which suggested that I have PCOS, and I am now awaiting a follow up ultrasound. I have also been prescribed a topical antibiotic treatment for my skin. It helped a bit but my skin is still bothering me a lot. Therefore I would like to know if I can resume taking the pill now because I am desperate to clear up my skin. Do I have to wait to have the ultrasound/ get a definite PCOS diagnosis however?
Symptoms:  Acne, amenorrhea
