I think your doctor will usually give you a course of Provera to induce a period.

Your doctor could give you something to induce a period and start over.  Or if your blood test and an u/s show that your hormones and ovaries are effectively in the beginning of a cycle, you could just start it right away too without a period.

Trueimagev2014:  You doc should give you something to start AF, usually Provera. (and be forewarned, if you are anything like me, it will turn you into a crazy woman LOL). If that doesnt work (I dont have PCOS, but have very wonky cycles), they will monitor you and give you a trigger shot (Orvidrel) that will force you to ovulate. 

You can also try to force AF yourself by using OTC progestrone. You can use Progestrone cream that you rub into your skin. But my Fertility Nutritionist suggested (and I liked) using Progest-E which is oral.

Good Luck!

PS- do not delay working with a Reproductive Endrocrinologist. In fact, depending on your age, I would be in contact with them now, do not wait until Jan. It can take several months to get an appointment and several more months for testing.
