Hi, I am 25 and was diagnosed 6 years ago with PCOS as well as Endo while ttc. I under went Lap surgery to "clean me out" had all the other routine tests and completed 6 rounds of clomid which never worked for me 4 rounds of Femara and 2 IUIs failed and I still had no idea what PCOS was or what it entailed especially because I did NOT have classic symtoms. I was not obese my cycles were slighting irregular (monthly but occasionally they varied 5-7 days but always showed within a month or so) I did have increased facial hair and slight weight gain (10-12lbs). I did not ovulate at that time. I switched doctors 2 years ago( 4 years of ttc with no luck) and she put me on metformin. I concieved within 2 months. She didn't have me track anything for 3 months and if I didn't concieve she would have me bbt and OPK but I didn't need to because I was PG in the 2nd month. DH and I are wanting our second and the reason for my post is this. I had regular cycles after DS was born (much better than last time only varying 2-3 days at most) I usually get EWCM and "ovulation" pains but was told that Ovulation pains can be as simple as gas and not to even think twice about those pains... But once again we aren't getting pregnant. So DR put me back on metformin and evening primrose oil and tracking with OPKs. I had a positve OPK last cycle and was so excited but now I am reading that I STILL may not have ovulated because it can give false positives with PCOS.... But OB says not to worry I more than likely did and she didn't want to confirm by U/S because with the metformin she believes I did O. I don't know if I got false positives before because I never tracked by OPK only U/S. Do you all think given my history that I "probably" am ovulating and it was a true positve or should I get more aggressive with my doctor? Sorry this was so long but I desperatly need some advice and opinions!!! Thank you!!!!View Thread
