View Full Version : MAYBE BABY ovulation predictor and pocs
Hi ladies i just have a quick question i have being using the maybe baby ovuklation predictor and was just told by my cyno not to bother cause it dosn't work for pocs suffers was just wondering if any one else had heard this?
I don't know about the PCOS part with a maybe baby, but I do know that my husband used it as a joke once and the fern leaf pattern came up to say that he was ovulating!
I don't think it's a really accurate way to know if you are fertile and that probably temperature monitoring will give a better indication.
Anyway, good luck and I hope that you conceive soon:yes:
From what I understand it will only pick up on natural ovulation not medication induced ovulation.
Hi ladies I'm new to bub hub and would like to say a big hello to everyone. It is true that it is harder to test with OPK's if you have PCOS. PCOS sufferers have more LH so you can test positive to an OPK more than once in a cycle giving you false readings. But if you're taking metformin this should keep your LH down and its ok to test with an OPK you should get an accurate reading. If you're also using clomid you shouldn't test till until 3 days later as this can also give you a false positive. I have just completed 3 rounds of clomid and metformin and used OPK's, I got the LH surge and tested positive on the right days but unfortunately the LH surge wasn't enough to O. I hope this helps.
Used a maybe baby with DD and fell pregnant first use, so was pretty accurate, but I have heard of a lot of people who can't use them and this time around my PCOS has kicked in, no O for 6 months now and the Maybe Baby tends to predict O 2-3 times a month so not accurate for me with my PCOS when it is really bad.
I've started using the fertility friend website to chart my periods and fertile signs. I like the way it has the calendar to use and I find it really helpful to track whats happening with my body which is important with pcos.
