I basically went the doctors and said, 'I've had no O or AF for 5 months, please help!'. I was then given a prescription for Metorfmin. 5 weeks later, I've finally got the big O! Even if I don't get a BFP this cycle, at least I know the medication is doing something. The doctor suspects I have PCOS.
Nope, I started testing on cd12 and after using 20 of them and getting empty circles (using the Clearblue digital tests) I got disheartened. Plus they are so expensive, I decided to stop.
I did some research and found a saliva opk, which gives you a ferning pattern, when you are ovulating. Plus its reusable, so you've not got the expense of buying new ones all the time. So when I started the metformin, I started using the saliva opk. Then a couple of days ago, I got an intense ferning pattern, so thought I'd test using the Clearblue opk and got my first smiley!!
