I'm 26, DH is also 26. We've been ttc for baby #1 for a year now!
After 12months of ttc, last month I was diagnosed with PCOS. June was our first month trying with the assistance of Clomid. After a 42 day cycle I was finaly able to start. I got a positive ovulation test on day 14. 2 lines with the test slightly darker than the other.
I've been experiencing what I thought were pregnancy symptoms such as headaches, back aches, unstable tummy and cramps. Cramping started about Wed last week so I didn't supose they'd be period cramps. This morning I did a pregnancy test and it was very much negative. I survived the day convincing myself that I had just tested too early.
This afternoon I got my results from day 21 blood tests and Doc said it didn't indicate that I had ovulated at all. So the possibility that I am now pregnant is close to zilch. Doc said to up the dosage of clomid this month to 100mg. She said to take progesterone if period doesn't come. How long should I wait. As I have no idea where my cycle is up to due to PCOS, but going by a 28 day cycle it would be due on Friday. Shall I wait till Monday to start the progesterone?
Every month is getting harder. I'm studying early childcare and the centre I did my prac with has repetatively asked me to come back to help. I love working with kids but it's especially dificult when we're having so much trouble having our own. How do people cope??? It's getting harder and harder for me.
So my 3 questions are;
A) Why would an OPK test come up positive when my bloods indicate I didn't ovulate?
B) Hopefuly my period comes Friday or over the weekend, but if it doesn't when should I start taking the progesterone?
C) How do others cope??? The negative preg tests are getting harder and harder to bare.
