    Hi MadeWithLove, doctors can sometimes use different criteria for the diagnosis. My gp originally said I had pco and not pcos because all my testosterone, estrogen, androgen etc levels are within the normal range. The only abnormal blood test for me was insulin resistance, which wasn't picked up until my FS ordered a glucose tolerance test. I also had some longer cycles and day 21 (and 28 and 35) progesterone showed no rise indicating ovulation. Those two test results plus the ultrasound showing pco were what gave me the diagnosis rather than any other hormone issues. So not having all the other hormone issues means I don't have lots of the more noticeable symptoms you find on lots of websites.
    Good luck, and I hope you get some answers or clarification at least.

    Thank you Misstrouble and greenfairy.

    Greenfairy - that's so awesome for you and gives me hope!

    Misstrouble - sounds like you're on the right track with everything. Ovidrel/pregnyl takes a while to leave your system. I was told to wait 2 weeks....but I've given up testing anyway! Just wondering, are you overweight? Sorry for the question....just wondering as I haven't been tested for insulin issues, have pco but no other symptoms. I have a low bmi so wondering if its worth getting insulin tests?

    2dpo for me. My bbt rises slowly... Anyone else?

    Good luck ladies

    No worries ainsleyp, it's fine to ask. No I'm not overweight - at my heaviest my BMI was 24 but currently about 22 on a low carb diet. So it wasn't something I expected, but I also have a family history of type I diabetes so my risk might be a little higher. I hope the 2ww goes quickly for you

    Im just after some advice - I have now seen a gyno/fertility specialist and he gave me provera to take before I go on clomed so I can have a period. I finished the 7 day course of provera last Thursday and still no period however I have the sorest nipples I have ever had. Normally I feel nothing in my breasts but the last week and a half they are so painfull. Is this normal? How long after taking provera do you get your period?

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to this thread... here's a bit about me - I was diagnosed with PCO 3 weeks ago, saw a FS 2 weeks ago and started Provera 10 days ago. Yesterday I had a brown discharge and rang my FS, he said to see how it goes over the next 48hrs and if it progresses to consider that as day 1 and he was right... today it's a full blown flow so today is day 1 of Clomid for me. We are 27 and 28 so hopefully have age on our side whilst TTC.

    My DH is having a sperm analysis next week, just as an extra precaution so we know that his side of things won't affect us TTC. I have a blood test on CD21, which is actually Christmas day so will go on Christmas eve to see if I have ovulated after my course of Clomid... I really hope so!

    DH is looking forward to the next few weeks... if you know what I mean!

    How's everyone else going??

    KJ - have you contacted your FS? I have super sensitive and sore nipples a week before AF (last time she arrived) so maybe it's on it's way? Or is there any chance you could be UTD?

    Good luck everyone

    Evening gorgeous ladies. Thank-you so much for your advice.

    I saw the doc today and he was just as surprised as I was that I have had consistent cycles for the last 4mths and have had positive OPK readings so I'm off for bloods and an US tomorrow. He also laughed when I was talking BBT and charting cycles. I also happened to know exactly how long my last four cycles were from memory .. I guess most ppl have no idea so he was pretty impressed/amused that I knew what i was talking about and what tests i wanted done. All the same as he was going to reccomend plus one more for rubella. He wants to check if I have had it before to be all clear during preg. Apparently it's really really bad to have foetus exposed to it.

    So I'm hoping to confirm if I still have PCOS or was mis diagnosed 10yrs ago. I know I have cysts on ovaries from a recent scan but hoping its more PCO than PCOS for both my ongoing Health and fertility.

    Fx for good results next week.

    xx

    Bugger! I've had to go to docs to get Primulot to stop AF, day 37 of the dreaded witch! I'm tired and exhausted, doc thinks it will take an additional 2 cycles after Primulot just to get back to normal......yay!
