Am I ovulating?

Postby wannabemommy23 » Thu Jan 09, 2014 1:14 pm

Hi this is my first post. My fiance and I have been ttc for almost 3 yrs now with no success. About 4 1/2 months ago I started metformin for my pcos. I have had 4 regular periods in a row now. Does that mean I am ovulating and can now concieve or am I just getting my hopes up again for nothing?

If your cycles are regulating since starting the metformin, then more than likely you are ovulating. It sounds good!

I'm not trying to burst anyone's bubble but I have normal periods every 26-29 days. I do not ovulate on my own. Just because its regulating doesn't mean your ovulating. That's just from my experience though.

So then how do you know if you're ovulating?!...What about temping?...Will you still have a temp drop if you're NOT ovulating? (sorry to butt in to the convo but I'm starving for info!! lol)

Well my DH and I had been trying for over a year. I would always have a hard time with OPKs because I would always get positive OPKs. Day after day. My charts were all over the place. After being confused about all that. I made a doctors appointment. He did bloodwork. My progesterone levels were really low. I was trying to ovulate but wasn't releasing a egg. That's why I always got a ton of positive OPKs. I still would get cramps and everything like I was ovulating but nope definately not.

Good luck!

I am also in this position. Can BBT give a false ovulation impression? OPKS and CF are not reliable so can we rely on BBT with PCOS :shock:
