Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

One week ago I took several pregnancy tests after getting an extremely faint line on a Superdrug early detection test. I took a first response, clear blue early, clear blue cross and another superdrug early. I got an extremely faint line on all of them, i mean extremely faint the darkest one being the clear blue cross which my parter said he could see on that one. I'm guessing I ovulated 2 weeks ago as I had a lot of pain there and I had a period two weeks prior to that. Anyway i have been testing for the last week but had a two day break. Today I tested and the line is even fainter on the clear blue crosS and barely visable on the cheapy poundstore test (looks more like an evap line but within the timeframe). I don't really know what to think as I have PCOS and I don't have regular periods but I'm guessing I would be due about now if i was to have one this month. Doctor refused to give me a blood test, told me come back when line is darker as his came up negative in the two minutes he waited. I have added a picture of the first clear blue test I did a week ago and today's cheapy test (I forgot to take a pic of the clear blue today). My last period I had was 9th Sep which lasted 5 days. Any help or advice much appreciated...

Anyone? I did another cheapy test first thing this morning and there was again a very faint line before 10 mins but did another one again just now and nothing, I know it probably because it's too diluted. I'm just wondering why the lines are not getting any darker it's been over a week since I started testing.

Sometimes it can take a while for you to get a good line on a test. If you aren't sure when your period is due it might still be too early.

Yesterday morning I got a very faint line again but this morning nothing on a clear blue, first response and cheapy one. I was either seeing evap lines, had a chemical pregnancy or my dates are very wrong. I'm going to just relax for a week, no testing and see if AF shows up, if not I'll be booking a doctors appointment next Monday.

I'm not sure what are those line, also not sure if the PCOS got anything to do with it. I also have the syndrome, and been trying for over two years for a second child. Had those lines come up on my tests several times. Yet I was not pregnant. Got me all worried about chemical pregnancy and false positives all the time. Once I even had a coloured faint positive +, but another tests and blood test cam back negative... When my AF comes very soon, we will be trying again. And I will push myself not to test until Next AF due date... Deffo not worth the stress before.

I've been trying for over ten years and must have used thousands of tests but I've never experienced getting the lines I got on many tests this time and plus I'm getting a lot of symptoms which I don't usually get even when AF is due. If I wasn't in the uk and could just pay a doctor to give me a blood test instead of having to ask permission my mind would be at ease. But anyway I'm just going to be as patient as I can and see what happens. I've convinced myself I'll never have kids anyway. I've been trying since 17 and I'm 30 next year. My bmi is just under 26 so I'm hardly obese but doctor says I'm too fat to conceive.

My gyneacologist says that the weight matters, but also there are way too many women really overweight and still getting pregnant somehow with no medical help. It's good to try and loose some weight before getting pregnant, especially with PCOS, as this hormone imbalance already prevents us from doing so. Don't let it to your head too much though. My BMI is just under 22, and I'm 27... I used to convince my self same thing. My little boy was magic.
You can take Inofolic which os available only online :/ or miositogyn which is also only online. And I think you might be better of with the latter one, it also helps to loos weight. It's a powder designed for PCOS. I lost some extra weight on it, doing my daily things, no extra working out. I'm still drinking it daily and have 3months to finish. My ovaries seem to clear of slightly and had two tiny folicles that were bigger at the ovu time... So slowly getting there :)
Also when we conceived, finally!, we were drunk for few days. And belive it or not there are a lot of stories going round about pregnancy PCOS and being drunk. I had then my AF missing for few months and came right back from fertility clinic with a "no chance" news.
And I guess there is a way to do blood tests privately, yet I also never figured it out how to do it in UK. Maybe it takes a private appointment to attend and a lot of cash LOL.
Maybe you still have a chance, just because it didn't work with me, doesn't mean it won't with you. What CD are you on you said?

I started taking myo inositol in powder form a month ago. A teaspooon twice a day mixed in water. I also started taking at the same time agnus castus 1000mg twice a day, metformin 500mg once a day, folic acid 5mg (as my levels are very low according to blood tests done in July), pregnacare once a day and vitamin d twice a day (they also showed as low in blood test). But it's only been a month and I have already notcied I'm not as tired, achy or moody as I used to be, so I think I slowly the medicine may help to balance everything out.
I try to lose weight but it's so hard unless I go to the gym, I avoid sugar, dairy and gluten as much as possible since I read a few months ago that these are so bad for PCOS. If I find out for sure I'm not pregnant I will be joining the gym, I was already ready to go but then all this happened.
And according to my calculations from the first day of my last AF I'm on CD 30 now.
TMI WARNING: I'm getting a lot of dry white powder like stuff in my underwear for past 4/5 days and I feel very dry down there which is rare for me.

TTC is the most complicated journey sometimes :/ I'm waiting for my AF right now, took pills to induce it and three up the first one by whatever reason. Had brekky after the pill and it all went back up. It was my last batch of 10, so had no extra one to cover the loss. Now it's a waiting game :/ then I will be back on Clomid and then going to my gynea in a month.... If only the mother nature was on my side for once !! :/
Did you take any more test so far?? The blood test, good thing you did it. I know the drill, I also have been taking it all and also can see the improvement on my mood swing, being tired less and less. Lets just hope we are on the high way ;)

Hi. I did one first thing this morning and nothing. Still no sign of AF. Boobs still very sore and swollen but back ache has gone. I will be seeing the doctor on Friday if no AF. Something isn't right and they need to listen to me and invertisgate it properly not just rush me out the door with a prescription.
And yes! Hopefully we are on the way to a healthy pregnancy soon. It really does help to relax and be happy. I was in a abusive marriage for 8 years and never conceived or even ovulated when I was with him. Now two years later I have a wonderful partner who makes me so happy and is so kind and gentle to me and look I have ovulated and conceived, I dont put it all down the the medicine, I put it down to being relaxed and happy too. I have very little to stress about theas days. And I already know my partner will make a good dad as I see how he is with the kids he already has.
What I'm saying is just relax, take ur medicine and watch your diet and have hope for a little miracle :)
