I went off the pill this Feb and have been TTC since then. Now PCOS is when you dont ovulate, right? I am wondering if I am ovulating or not. I'm using my first OPK this month and its still all negative at CD 16.

PCOS is a syndrome where there are a bunch of little cysts inside of your ovaries. Untreated, I would ovulate on my own, but not regularly...could have been 30 days...could have been 90...

Don't sweat not getting your BFP OPK yet...I got mine on day 17...and some people get theirs as late as day 23 or so. I know it gets hard, but keep testing!!

I have PCOS as well as the tipped uterus. Keep in mind that PCOS does not ALWAYS have cysts. There are many ways PCOS manifests (belly fat, insulin intolerance, skin tags, excess hair growth, hair loss, dark skin patches, to name a few) and some people have some symptoms, others have other symptoms - part of the reason why it's so hard to diagnose. Don't freak out about possibly having it until you've seen a doctor.

If you know you have a tipped uterus, deal with that first. Many of the posts in here have given some good advice. I actually talked to my doc about it yesterday and he wasn't too concerned about it. It's a pain in the tush (sometimes the girl parts too - lol) but really, the only downside is it's harder to keep your DH's stuff in. And if you are really concerned that you might have PCOS, just ask your doc and if they think it's a possibility, there is a list of test to rule it out or in.

I also have a tilted uterus i never knew it untill i ended up having a problem with a cyst that busted . which now i understand why my 3 laid on the right side all the time. I was told as you get fearther into your pregnancy the weight of the baby i guess kinda fixs it for the time being. but my older sister can't have kids because hers is pretty much upside down.
Wish you all the best of luck....
