So I have pcos. I just started metformin and a medicine that will force a period.
I have never really ovulated on my own since I started testing in September. So my question is, could this be a false positive? Or did the medicine force me to ovulate? What happens if my husband and I bd and then in 5 days when I’m suppose to have a period by the one medicine?

Opks turn positive when your body gears up to ovulate. The only way to actually confirm ovulation is through temping or checks by your doctor. Your body can gear up o ovulate and then it not actually happen. It’s basically just an indicator that your body is producing the chemicals to promp ovulation. Your positive means your body is at least trying to ovulate.
I have PCOS also. PCOS varies a lot person to person so I can’t tell you what you are or are not doing, but t I’ll give you and idea of how many be works. I used to have cycles of 55-70 days. At least 2-3 times a cycle, my body would gear up to ovulate before ovulation would actually happen. I’d have all the signs leading up to ovulation but nothing. Eventually after a few “tries” I would actually ovulate (confirmed by temping).
Im not sure this helps any, just letting you know one possibly. Hope you get some more concrete answers. PCOS is so frustrating.

mandapanda1022 : it does help. I think I’m just in disbelief because before I started the metformin, I never even came close to having those lines. And I started testing with opks in august, so my first positive one in 5 months is super exciting and also nerve wrecking.
