Doing the housework and found all my old sticks from when I was TTC. I'm not TTC as such (well really I'm just kidding myself, if I'm POAS and not preventing I'm totally TTC but trying to take a more relaxed approach

Is this a negative or positive OPK? I think it's negative??

Can PCOSers get accurate positives? I felt what I thought was OV pain yesterday

That's negative. The test line needs to be as dark as the control.

As for ov piss sticks with pcos? I know they're useless for me. My hormones are out of whack (typical for pcos, but not for everyone) so my LH is always high.

You'd be better to monitor your temp (won't "warn" you about ovulation, but you can spot the temp change once it's happened)... But that doesn't fit too well with relaxed ttc! (I'm in same boat!)

Yeah I can't be faffed with temping yet. It's first month of not preventing and tbh we've only just sort of said we'll see what occurs

Wouldn't have POAS if hadn't just come across them while cleaning

It happened last time when we "gave up" anyhow

Hi! I also have pcos and the tests are rubbish for me. I'm always getting positive results so I decided to stop taking them now and just see what happens,,, however today I took one because I had a sore boob and increased sex drive plus watery cm and it's come back the darkest positive I have ever seen so I really really hope it's a real positive. I don't do the temping because I really don't have that much time and have decided that if the laid back approach of not taking ovulation tests don't work then I won't be having another baby. I will include my picture. It seems a little dark to be nothing 😟

That looks hopeful!

I hope do but I don't get my hopes up anymore! That was the only test I have taken this month and I'm not taking anymore because I'm trying to relax about it. Hopefully we will all get our bfp using the relaxed approach x
