    My cycles so far have been between 52 and 32 days, and every one has been shorter since having Seth.

    I am not using OPKs but every month Ive got pretty much to the day when Im going to get AF based on EWCM when I should be ovulating (does that make sense?).

    This month, I had nothing at all. The past week I have had LOADS oof CM, sickness, tiredness, sore boobs, just gereally feeling a bit crap which could all be pregnancy symptoms but also could all be caused by something else.

    Going by my last cycle which was 32 days, I should have got AF yesterday but I dont know if thats right because I dont know if I ovulated, and if I didnt when will it arrive?

    Ive tested twice and both BFNs. Just dont know if I am actually late, and should keep testing? Just dunno what to do, I was so convinced that I dont have PCOS with my cycles regulating but now Im not so sure.

    I didnt mean to type so much sorry - just properly confused :( Also sorry if this made no sense x

    i have pcos and my cycles since july (m/c) have been all over the show. I never know wots going on! i do try to pin point when im ovulating but not regularly, and im forever doing tests if im a few days late, to no joy. so i cant help but all i can say is if i was you and i still had the sore boobies and sickness then i would tests again in a few days!!

    good luck x

    thanks hun, Im not holding out any hope, Im pretty sure it would have shown by now if it was positive. Thank you though, Im just gutted because this is my last month TTC so I'd rather just get AF and move on from it, and deal with living my life without TTC for a while, not be kept in limbo. Feel like crying, its stupid :(

    Thanks hun :hugs:

    Why are you stopping?
    im trying to keep the whole getting involved with ttc to a minimum, only because it all got too much for me to cope with. thats why i dnt chart regularly i just use the microscope.
    I offically hate ttc, ill never enjoy my pregnancy if it ever happens, im constantly feeling like why me i want this more than eny thing ever, i watch people screm at their kids for not behavin and i want to say if you found it hard to get where you are you wudnt be doing that!:growlmad:
    I still have hope that one day ill have a huge bump i cant think about not getting there id break down.:cry:

    I really hope you get there hun, dont give up but maybe try to focus on somthing else (like i try n tell myself)!!!:hugs: xx

    I dont have any answers for you hun. As you know I have PCOS and it really is unpredictable. Are you sure that the EWCM was EWCM? because I know that discharge is a sign of PCOS....and I get quite alot of it almost all the time.....

    Sorry, thats not really helpful, but maybe you had mistook the EWCM for normal discharge? :wacko: x xx

    I just try and pinpoint when I have ovulated then count 12 days after that. My lp is somewhere between 9-11 days. Sometimes!

    Are you on medication? Why you stopping TTC?

    Maybe I have done, I dunno I guess its a possibility - only thing is though past few cycles Ive had loads then perfectly the day after it stops, 14 days later AF arrives. I had the tiniest bit imagineable this month 16 days ago and now nothing. You're right though I could well be doing that.

    Its difficult though because Ive been diagnosed with this, yet my GP wont answer my questions, and Ive got to wait til feb to see a specialist, who was useless last time. I asked him about my symptoms and he just said "ill see you in 4 months if you're not pregnant". Which clearly was very useful.

    Sorry for complaining, Ive no right to, its just frustrating.

    We're stopping because DH isnt sure what he wants really. We decided that if it happens this month, then its meant to be. If not I'll go back on BCP and we'll wait a while until we're both 100% happy to start TTC again. Its selrish, but I wanted it to be this month.

    No medication yet, only seen gyne once x

    You have every right to. So many GP's and FS's don't take PCOS seriously but its a hideous illness. Not only does it render a fair amount of us infertile without meds, but it has horrible side effects as well like spots, weight gain, facial hair and depression. And yet they treat it like it's something trivial.

    So I understand and the same happened to me. Diagnosis, no information, no medication, come back in 5 months if youre still not pregnant and let's face it, I wouldn't be as I had stopped ovulating!!

    Luckily my gp has a brain and stuck me on metformin which is starting to sort me out. So there is hope mate. Eventually! xxx

    Thanks hun :hugs:

    its so hard knowing theres something not right, and that no one wants to help. Id do anything I can to make this better, Id change my diet, stop drinking... I dunno, whatever. Its not just the getting pregnant bit coz I knw theres stuff I can do to help that but its other stuff... depression, stomach cramps, terrible skin. Its all trivial stuff but day in day out it starts to wear thin you know?

    Sorry for complaining x
