So I have some questions.. If some of you bee’s don’t mind taking a look at my history, and letting me know what you think!
FI and I aren’t TTC fully yet.. We’re NTNP right now, we’re just rolling with things right now until the wedding (its 2 months away! Eep! Lol). I just had ultrasounds (pelvic – it was internal and external) last Thursday and am waiting to hear from my doctor about the results, but I’m getting anxious and want to know what others think. I’ve been tracking my AF since August 2013 (that’s when I stopped taking the pill) I wanted to chart and temp, but I kept falling off that wagon lol.

I’m tracking on a period app and its saying my average cycle is 52 days. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 6 years ago. I’m just wondering if its possible that I’m ovulating at all? Some of these ovulation calculators online are saying my cycle is too long – so I’m probably not ovulating and to see my Dr. Which I am, but I’m impatient which is why I’m asking you lovely ladies! lol
So is it possible to still ovulate even if your cycles are longer? I feel like my AF’s are somewhat regular.. What do you bees think?

I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was younger and then went on the pill for over ten years. Before being on the pill I had long cycles as well. I got off the pill in September. I was testing for Ovulation and I believe I ovulated on CD31. I just received a positive pregnancy test yesterday so it appears I ovulated even with a long cycle!

Ali-oop: Before I was on the pill I was very irrgeular (I was also very over weight) before I started the pill. Since then I’ve lost a lot of weight, and am eating better + exercising. So I think thats really helped with getting me more regular.
Congrats on the BFP! Thats so exciting! And its good to know that you can still ovulate with a longer cycle! 🙂

The only way to see if you are truly ovulating is by temping every day. Unfortunately, just by your AF dates, its impossible to tell. Your dr can do ultra sounds and blood tests at different times in your cycle and may be able to tell if you have O-ed.

AOriver: I know I have to start temping, I just need to buckle down and actually do it 🙂
Maybe now that I’m living with FI he can whip me into shape on doing it religiously

Stephville: I admit, it was a pain in the tush at first, but once you get in the habit, its second nature. Plus its really cool to see whats going on with your body in detail! 🙂
