    Default Best pregnancy test for PCOS

    What is the best pregnancy test for PCOS? I'm on day 50 in this cycle.. my average is around 36. So fingers crossed I got a little bubba cooking but with PCOS my cycles are so irregular.

    I don't think having PCOS impacts the accuracy of a pregnancy test, how many DPO you are will. I had success with eBay cheapies, first response early result and first response digital tests and I have PCOS.

    I've heard due to hormone imbalance certain tests are better than others.. I've been reading way too many posts haha. I might get one of the digital ones. Did you need medication to help you? I don't know anyone with PCOS so it's hard to find people to talk with about it

    I agree with @JR03 I don't think that PCOS impacts the test
    I tested with frer at 14 and 16 DPO and got negative with FRER
    Than at 20DPO when I used a FRER and got a positive
    But bloods came back at 16DPO saying positive

    Pregnancy tests do nkt get affected by PCOS. Ovulation tests are the ones that don't work well with PCOS.

    It's hard because of my irregular cycles I'm not sure when I ovulate therefore not sure how many dpo I am. Cycles over the last year vary from 27-64 days but on average it's around 36.

    I have PCOS and its hard. I took tests randomly. And got positives twice. The first time I was feeling yuck. And the 2nd I had no symptoms and had a gut feeling and bought tests on whim on a trip to Melbourne. I used FRER but it can get expensive.

    Because of the long cycles I get my hopes up. And just as I think yes, this is the one. The next day my period comes and I get all depressed

    Pregnancy #1 I had a fluke cycle the first month of trying where I ovulated on day 16 (usually my cycles were 40-50 days long) and fell pregnant. Pregnancy #2 we'd been trying for 9 months (35-60 day long cycles then) and in the cycle we were successful, I was taking magnesium and vitex which are vitamins, so no medication needed.
    ETA pregnancy #2 I ovulated on cd16 again.
