Hi Elaine,

You can try tracking your cervical mucus and or position. A few websites to check out (suggest viewing these at home or on mobile...not at work just in case):

Hi Elaine. You can buy opks on eBay they are pretty cheap along with hpts. Are you seeing a doctor about ttc?? I have pcos also and I do not ovulate. Do you know if you actually O?? Does AF come every 35 days for sure??

hi Jessica :-) for the last couple of years I'm 35 days. i went to six different doctor's and all of them is telling me different story's . Dr wypkema is the only female Dr in gauteng and she told me I've got pcos and she put me on metformin and vitals etc but nothing works she also told me that "o" day is between 16 and 24. i really want to see a specialist but in gauteng there is not really much of them.

Hi Elaine! Did you check out the opks on ebay? Since you O is usually between 16-24 i think you really should be testing daily since you are not being monitored. Or BD every other day between those days lol. I have been on metformin for a year now and i honestly dont think it made me ovulate at all. And the only way for me to get a period is to take birth control or provera. Other then that i get like 2-4 periods a year on my own. Just know that you are not alone. Hopefully you can find a specialist. Good luck!! BABY DUST!!!!!!!!! :)
