Have your tried charting? It can help you learn about your cycles and when if you do ovulate. It’s not that hard and takes very little time. Please feel free to join us at the Charters of the Hive.

I don’t have PCOS, but I do have long cycles. It helped me to only join POAS threads after I had ovulated (confirmed by charting and OPKs). As long as I could avoid stalking those threads in the long wait to ovulate, it definitely helped avoid the disappointment!

I also have PCOS, and went an entire 386 days without having a period. Even though every PCOS situation is different, I TOTALLY understand how you feel. I spent a whole year stalking those threads! Finally after being put on medication and a few lifestyle changes (mostly getting rid of stress), I have a “regular” 35 day cycle. I am on my second month of clomid, and my second month on the POAS board.

Just know that you are not alone in the way that you are feeling, and that it can and most likely will get better. Have you seen an OB or RE?

BakeosaurusRex:  Oh. My. God. 386 days? I’d have died.

This past cycle I ovulated on CD 66 so I know the feeling about not really being active on a POAS board.  I do what some of the above suggest–join once I’ve ovulated. 

The Charters thread is also AWESOME! There’s a lot of talk over there and not quite as TWW focused most of the time.

I feel exactly the same way. We have a PCOS and TTC board… come join it! Way more realistic conversations for those of us that don’t get a shot each month!
