Ovulation Prediction Kits


I have PCOS and have been TTC for 10 months. I barely get periods (only had 1 naturally this year) so my doctor prescribed progesterone to induce a bleed. I took this and had a bleed about 3 weeks ago and on the last day of my period started taking Inofolic which I had read very good things about. It’s a mix of Folic Acid and MyoInistol and can increase regular ovulation/egg quality. I was using OPK and getting negative results until 15 days after my period and got a positive result (so would be in and around when ovulation would be expected) this positive result was for one day and then back to negative results, so again what would be expected for a “normal” cycle. I was really chuffed with this and TTC as much as possible in this fertile window 😍 however since then I have read quite a lot about how OPK are no good in PCOS and you can get false positives. When I orginally went to the Dr my LH levels were quite normal but i suppose this can change. I just wondered if I should consider this to be accurate or not given that I’ve always had negative results and that the one positive occurred at roughly the right time?! I think I’m just holding for a glimmer of hope!! 🤞🏼🤞🏼

Any help appreciated.

OPK's are unreliable for pcos ladies, so take the results with a pinch of salt, the best way to check is by taking your temperature (fertilityfriends is a good website).

Has your partner had a sperm test yet as 1/3 of fertility issues are men. Get him on the Boots Vit C and zinc tablets as a precaution as my husband's sperm improved by over 100% in a year so working using it just to boost them anyway.

Also dont focus on your period as they mean nothing and you can ovulate without one. As you have been trying for 10 months I would ask to be referred to fertility so that you get the ball rolling and your partner tested too.
