Mad (non-existent) cycles post ectopic and need some advice

I'm just at my wits end at the moment and unsure what my body is doing. I'm 35 and my partner and I have been ttc for over two years. I have pcos and one Fallopian tube (my right one was removed in 2007 because it twisted in on itself and nearly killed me - not ectopic - just "bad luck" apparently) and had six months of clomid last year (I ovulated three times out of six while on it)

Got pregnant on the last round at 150mg, and at nearly seven weeks, in November 2013, found out it was ectopic in my left tube. I was 'lucky' in that I didn't need surgery or methotrexate, it just stopped growing and I was monitored until my hcg levels dropped to zero.

I've been told that the fertility clinic would like to do a HSG but only after I've had two periods. I had one on December 20 for five days and nothing since. I'm now on CD 50-something and my period is nowhere to be found. In fact, in the last 48 hours I've done a couple of opks and they've come up positive and the line seems to be getting darker - the frustrating thing is that OH is o/s for work till Thursday so we can't Dtd.

I'm exercising and getting healthy, trying to lose half a stone or so, I'm having acupuncture, I'm limiting booze, taking vits and temping. I feel like I am doing everything I possibly can right now.

So, is it possible to really ovulate this late? And does anyone have any advice having read my predicament? I'm obsessing about it all way too much and feel like I'm being betrayed by my own body over and over again.

Any advice would be so appreciated right now.

Are you on metformin?
I have tried eating brown bread pasta and rice.
I am avoiding any chocolate.
Trying to follow the pcos diets as i am insulin resistant.
Some people do ovulate late but as you probably know opks dont necessarily work with pcos because of high LH a lot of the time

Hi Naty, no I'm not on metformin. When I asked my fc about it months ago they looked at me like I had two heads. It's strange re the positive opks as I've has what feels like quite strong ovulation pains on my right side all evening.

I eat a pretty clean diet - no processed foods, mostly whole foods, veg and fish - meat only occasionally. Have tried to lay off carbs but find it too miserable! Will look into the pcos diet - thanks. And thanks for your response too.

Could you be pregnant?
Metformin is good because they think it can also reduce the miscarriage chances (as with pcos they are higher)

Hi Naty,

No, I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant and I've tested and got BFNs. Think my cycle is just really messed up...
