My body doesn't appear to be working!

Today is CD 34 and 16dpo, still negative tests.

Anybody know anything about anovulatory cycles? I seem to have problems every second month - perhaps it is PCOS or perhaps one ovary has problems?

By way of a bit of history I came off BC about 10 months ago, with a view to clearing it out of my system before formally trying. I think my periods were pretty much normal for the first 3-4 months.

In April I THINK I missed one all together. I say think as I wasn't particularly paying attention but at one point I realised that I hadn't seemed to have a period for a while, it was another 10 days after that realisation (with a few negative tests in between) that AF showed up. I then had a normal period.

The month after that I had a light period, which lasted only one day. It seemed odd and I went through the whole thing of thinking it might be implantation spotting. Anyway lots of negative tests and I think it must have just been a light period.

31 days later I had a normal period.

It is now 34 days later and nothing...again. I did have very very minor spotting on 6th August, which I thought may have been ovulation spotting, it would have been about the right time.

So hence my thinking that every other period might be just a no show and in fact my cycle is more like 65 days rather than the 32 I think it is.

I have ordered a BBT thermometer from Amazon today to start tracking temps and might go along to the doctors to check out the possibility of PCOS.

If anybody could help with advice on possible herbal remedies, drug remedies, the effectiveness of accupuncture or anything else then it would be appreciated.
