Today on my due date im getting brown blood, now it could be nothing but it says in the internet it could be a sign of pcos. I also have irregular periods, for the last 6 month I've had cycles 36, 32, 29, 28, 31. Are they not irregular enough to be pcos? I've got a GP appointment on Friday and want to see if he'll do my bloods to see if I'm ovulating, can he check for pcos too?

You can ask, but tbh those cycles are not particularly irregular - a couple of days either way is normal (I do have PCOS and after stopping the pill it was something like 63, 45, 23, 51, 103...). If you have no other features it's probably unlikely, but it can't hurt to ask.

My cycles were 32-40ish days long and although I'm very hairy and gain weight easily I was never diagnosed as PCO until I went for IVF.

Not sure about the brown blood - that could be anything.

Yeah ask them to test it wouldnt do any harm after 6mnths of tryin u need to start eliminating potential problems in my opinion. Ive only been trying since sept and im getting obsessed u must b gettin frustrated by nowflowersgd luck at docs keep us postec on how u get on x
