    Good afternoon, ladies!

    Okay here is my story in a nut shell: I found out I have PCOS in May- I have been TTC since this past Jan with no avail. I have very very irregular periods but the last 2 periods have seemed normal.

    This cycle I have not bled yet, no AF cramps, haven't been cranky (OH is very happy with that). I have, however, been very bloated, more hungry than normal, stuffy nose, headaches, been very teary, and my bbs are tender and swollen with bumps on the nipple. So I am feeling very good about this cycle!!! So far I have had nothing but BFN's on Clearblue digis though.

    So, my question to you girls is: Could PCOS affect the results of my tests? Or am I just nuts??

    Any advice would be fantastic!

    Have a great day, :dust: to all!!

    pcos can affect ovulation kits and give you false positives, but i don't think it affects pregnancy tests..

    I've heard that digital tests are less sensitive than regular tests, so maybe try a FRER and see what happens. Good luck and baby dust!!

    FRER and the $Tree ones are the lowest sensitivity available in stores in the U.S. Try one of those. The digi's are 50mIU.

    HAHA, thanks ladies! I knew I could count on you all for words of wisdom.

    OH and I went out tonight to get some more tests and run a few more various errands--- we were gone 3 hrs and I came home and I realized I forgot to get my tests!! How in the world could I forget?!??
