I have also heard that OPKs can give a false positive if you have PCOS. I would try your hand are temping. 🙂 It took me 4 different prenatel kinds to find the one that didn’t upset my tummy. I ended up using a gummy prenatel. Those are awesome and taste yummy!

Ovulation tests only indicate a LH surge, not ovulation. In fact, the packages often say that women with PCOS shouldn’t use ovulation tests because they can be inaccurate due to many surges. It’s possible that this is happening if you haven’t noticed changes in the mucus. That said, I’m sure there are plenty of women who never have egg white like mucus and they ovulate! Other types of mucus just isn’t as sperm friendly. If you have a regular cycle, then you most likely do ovulate. The only way to know for certain though is to chart!

Hormone based ovulation tests didn’t really work for me because I am slightly estrogen dominant (so my horones are a little wonky). What worked for me was this app called Kindara and temperature tracking. It took seven cycles of TTC, but we pulled it off 🙂

Thank you guys so much for your replies – some really useful info there! I’ve been to Boots at lunch and got some prenatals that have just Folic acid & Vitamin D in. Didn’t take my other prenatal this morning & already feeling a bit better. Still sick but not as much as yesterday. Must be the iron! Going to see whether I can get hold of a thermometer too, for next month if this month hasn’t worked!
