Back and confused again ! Worried I am not ovulating

Postby Reecevickers9 » Fri May 12, 2017 8:35 pm

I found out last cycle that I had PCOS but my doctor gave little information and I don't know much, she said it is not severe and I need to try for the typical year alone before getting any assistance. Im frustrated because I would at least like to know if Im ovulating. I know I need to see if I have a temp rise in the next few days. But anyone have any information to share about PCOS ? Or if either of those opks are positive? She only said I had extra follicles and high testosterone, Ive been looking for ways to combat this but have found little info, I am going to try and get a copy of my blood work and levels on Monday... Let me know what you guys think !

Sadly the opks aren't positive,for an aopk to be positive teh two lines has to be the same color at least,opks should be taken with afternoon urine.
As for pcos i have no personal experience so I can't say much but in what I read around google a change of diet,no carbs no sugar etc,can help keep ur cycles regular.
I wish you good luck and post the blood work when you can .

Thanks I will, I might upload better pics of CD 16 and 17 because on both test the line is definitely the same color as the control but not darker.

Some opks are not as sensitive as others. Try sure predict opks off amazon. They are pretty sensitive. Only way to know if you are truly ovulating is blood work or ultrasound. Temps do give a clearer picture but sometimes can be off as well.

I see, my doctor is uninterested in giving me further answers as of yet and wants me to try on my own for awhile, but when I don't even know if I am ovulating or not its frustrating. I did start Premama fertility supplement which contains Myo-instiol but other than that not sure what to do. Looking for fertility diet. I use clinical guard off amazon currently.

If your dr is unwilling to do anything consider finding a new one. Maybe if you tell dr you aren't getting positive opks they might consider testinf

Good. I love proactive drs bc that's how I am. I don't don't like to wait around and "see". If there's a problem I want to try and fix it. Not everyone is like that so you have to find the right dr to fit your personality. Wish you all the luck!

I agree, I am actually also currently going through this with my GP as well as mental health team, I really was hoping to stay in one place with OBGYN but it seems SO RIDICULOUSLY hard to find a doctor that even gives a flying s***. Im just fed up with Dr search right now, but I do agree with you I try to be very proactive but due to my age and a few other factors I find it hard to get a doctor to take me seriously.

I get it. I'm 36. I started trying to get pregnant with my last at 34. It took me 18 months bc my dr wouldn't do anything. I switched and new dr put me on clomid and it took me 2 flipping months to get pregnant! I could've done that a year and a half ago when my risks were lower.

Yes, it can be very annoying. I would feel better if I just knew if I was ovulating, my dr did say that my PCOS is mild but my opks and temps just are not making sense to me. I do drink A TON of water if maybe that would prevent the test line from getting darker than the control? Im just beyond confused. i did have a temp spike today after negative opks yesterday.

I'm on my phone and can't see your chart but I will check it out. Have you continued with bd? Hope you temp stays up

I haven't attached it yet but I will. I was sick at the beginning of my cycle so didn't log much then. Here's my chart so far. Also I use FF and it is not estimating O for 2-3 more days
