Trying to conceive

Hello ladies, so I'm here to see if I could get some advice, or some hope, or just support from others who may have any idea of what I'm experiencing, or maybe even went through the same thing as me.
So just to start off, my name is Desiree I'm 23 and I have been with my husband for 5.5 years and married for 2. I have been told I have PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) and I've had it for almost 2-3 years. I still get my AF.. It just comes every 29-34 days sometimes 36... I also want to just let you guys know this thread might have some TMI Sorry!
Okay so here it goes... My LMP was December 14th-20th .. I never know when O happens but I use mydays application which predicted somewhere around the 23rd-29th .. my husband and I BD the 20th, 25th, 28th & 1st. I noticed some clear CM on the 27th & 28th so I'm guessing maybe that is when O could have been..
So on the 31st I noticed some very light cramping... & I felt it enough to tell him, "I feel like I'm cramping"..... So that happened on and off over the next few days. On Jan 3rd I came home from work & saw a dried spot of brown on my panties. followed with some lower back aches (usually what it feels like when AF is coming) but this was entirely way too early. So now it's Jan 7th and I'm at work and I find a tan/yellowish CM on my undies this time.. & the next day same issue but this time is was a little darker and still tanish.. The CM each time was thick and odorless. No itching no burning.... I'm a medical assistant so I spoke to one of my NP's at the office & she said it sounds a lot like implantation..!
So I go home .. And I'm thinking and waiting.. So on Friday January 8th I took my first HPT.. BFN.. I figured because if I am pregnant at that point I would only be 3 weeks and a few days.. So I couldn't stop thinking about it and reading things online .. So I go to the ER on the 10th & they give me a blood test (beta) my hcg level came back <1 .. BFN .. So I'm like well why am I spotting ? Could it be too early to test .. & of course they kept telling me like "well no usually if a beta is negative, your not pregnant .. & if you were and that was implantation spotting we would have seen your numbers rising even if it was a little bit" ..... :( .....
So now I'm sitting there really upset .. Because although we arent actively trying like charting, and everything there is to do, we weren't preventing and I would love to see a BFP. So I sat there really upset . They did cultures to rule out any funny business like std's or infections, of course they came back negative.. so I'm like okay, than why did I spot ?! ....... So according to them they are blamming it on my pcos ! Which never in the 3 years has this happened to me. I do experience some ovary pain.. When they are inflamed but never did I have spotting, with light cramping, around the time I would have experienced implantation if I was pregnant . So I can't seem to wrap my head around what they are telling me. They told me to wait a week if AF doesn't come to take another test..
Well AF was due yesterday Jan 12th and still nothing so far.. The crazy thing is I have no symptoms at all, not even PMS.. I will actually be shocked if AF shows up, but with all thRae BFN's I don't know what to believe ... Today is day 31 in my cycle ... What do you guys think ?!?!?!?! .......
oh and here is a picture of an opk test I took on December 28Th.. Not sure if it's positive or not ... Do you think maybe I O'd later ?
Thank you all for taking the time to even read all of this !!! :)) hopefully I can learn something good !

I also have pcos and well it sucks! What I have learned through ttc is 1) opks don't work for me. They can be positive and my body decides to postpone ovulating 2) in my case cycles would become longer and longer each month it wasn't treated. When I started TTC and came off bc my first cycle was 30 days, then 35, then 40.....I went all the way in the 70s!!!
It makes things hard and unpredictable. The best advice would be to start charting so you can try to learn more about indcators of your body and ovulation. Good luck.

Wow, thanks so much.. That could be the issue with me.. I know birth control is suppose to help regulate.. So it could be a strong possibility that my cycles are just starting to get longer since I haven't been on bc since September ! .. Yikes.. I have a gyn appt on Monday .. so I'll have them check everything out .
