I’m so fed up with my cycles. I thought FOR SURE I had ovulated, but NOPE! We’ve only been TTC for 5 months- and I’m on my third cycle. My last one I didn’t ovulate until CD41 and I’m on CD30. I have never gotten a pos OPK. If my temps didn’t shift I’d question if I even ovulate. My sister has PCOS (not sure if it’s genetics) Before BCP I didn’t have regular period, but I just would like to know NOW if there’s something wrong. I’m young, I’m in decent shape. I just don’t want the doctor to just tell me to wait. Will they even humor me at this point? What’s the process of diagnosing PCOS? I have a questionable vaginal discomfort right now that I could go in for, but should I just be up front with the call and tell them I’d like to talk about PCOS or trouble conceiving?

Call and make an appt to discuss irregular cycles. They should start testing you for various things like PCOS. Mention your sister and how you are TTC. A reasonable doctor shouldn’t blow you off. Best wishes!

I would def suggest you call them and tell them what you want to discuss with your doctor. IDK if PCOS is genetic at all, but you never know and if it is, then you can take it from there, you know. GL and FX it isnt.

@MissLunchbox: I would bring that up about your irregular cycles and discomfort. A good doctor should try to find the answer not just tell you to wait and see what happens. I have irregular cycles as well and other signs that might indicate PCOS and will bring that up to my next appointment. Good luck!

Not that I think you should worry just yet, but I got my progesterone tested one cycle, 7 days after my temp shift, and it came back too low to confirm ovulation. Might be worth getting basic blood tests done if you’re going for a check up anyway. I ended up getting my progesterone up, and then pregnant, with the help of a naturopath, so if you don’t want to wait the full year you could also look into that. Good luck, I know the pain of waiting for ovulation!

My doctor told me that if I was BDing regularly and was not pregnant in 6 months, that I should come in and see her. I think it’s worth it to talk to your doctor about your experience and try to get some answers through testing. FX that you’re KU soon!
