    Ovulation tests are notoriously unreliable for women with pcos due to the hormone they test for. I wouldn't waste any more money buying stuff until you confirm with your Dr that you are actually ovulating.

    Hey Hun, why are they unreliable for PCOS women? Is the ovulation hormone elevated in PCOS women?

    Some women with pcos don't ovulate at all so you can test and test and test and never get a true positive.
    They measure the surge in luteinising hormone that accompanies ovulation and in women with pcos LH is often elevated anyway so a test can look positive even though ovulation isn't happening.

    I never got a true positive despite testing frequently.

    I'd suggest getting day 21 bloods as they would be the most accurate to see if you are ovulating.

    We have be ttc since Jan 16 with one MC.
    I've actually had this exact same feeling ever since I was 17. I always knew I'd get married, buy a house, etc etc, but that feeling of one day being a mother, I just never felt it would happen for me. I'm on my 4th round of IVF and we will keep at it, but I fear my attempts are in vain because I just don't see motherhood happening for me in this life. I don't think it was on the cards for me. It's a feeling I can't shake, but I hope I'm wrong.

    A big hug for you. I'm hoping you do become a mother and there's at least 1 good egg at your age.

    This whole thing is all based on luck, at least that's how I see it, only I have no luck in the world. Everything that can go wrong, always goes wrong for me. I hope it's different for you.
