I was diagnosed with PCOS about 5-6 years ago, before I was even married or TTC. They put me on Metformin right away and I continued with the BCP (as I wasn’t TTC at the time). Once I went off BCP, I began getting + OPKs pretty much the next month or so, but it seemed to come later and later in the cycle each month, and I ended up with about a 32-33 day cycle.

That said, it took me almost a year to get my first BFP even while tracking O each month using OPK’s. I couldn’t do the temping, it was driving me crazy. 

Unfortunately that BFP ended in MC around 7w in Feb, and was followed by a weird chemical situation 6 months later. Following the chemical, Dr put me on Progesterone suppelment pills, back in July/Aug of this year.

I’m finally pregnant again with what seems (so far…fingers crossed) like a healthy pregnancy. 

I would URGE your dr to check your progesterone levels as this really seemed to work for me. 

If you’re not using OPKs, you need to start. Use them religiously and try to POAS AM & PM each day. With PCOS, you can never REALLY be sure when you’re O’ing, so it’s important to POAS constantly, even if it’s CD 5. I would use lined notebook paper to record my OPK sticks with date/time so I would see a trend of them getting darker, etc.

MissRustic:  MissRustic: I was diagnosed with PCOS about 5 years before we TTC and we decided to TTC in Feb of this year. Prior to TTC I was on Metformin+BC, and after I came off BC my Endo/RE kept me on the Metformin to see if that would do the trick. Luckily, I was ovulating (although pretty late, CD 25 – CD 40) with the Metformin. I ended up getting pregnant our first cycle trying, but that ended in a CP. However, we got pregnant the cycle after my CP, and am currently 22weeks. I am thankful all I needed was Metformin (but we were about to start Femara+trigger if I didn\’t get pregnant on that last cycle). Wishing you all the best! I know I was really concerned it would take us a while to conceive, and I feel very fortunate it happend 2x in a row.

PS…and what I’m CONVINCED really helped me (in addition to the progesterone) was going gluten free back in April. From then on, I began to see my OPK’s get much darker and I would FEEL myself O’ing. A gluten free diet is a very good thing for women with PCOS.
