I’m not sure if anyone will see this or not, but I figured it was worth a shot. We’ve been TTC since March, and I’ve been using OPKs since January. This month, I added the Clear Blue opk system too because I felt like our timing still was off with the Amazon cheapies.
I got a definitively dark positive on the cheap OPK and a solid smiley face on the Clear Blue test CD 16. This morning, there was a lot of moisture plus discharge, so I decided to use one of the cheap OPKs again. It was very nearly positive with the second line just barely lighter than the control line. (I’m just starting TCOYF, and I haven’t been temping yet).
Has anyone else experienced this, or this just my PCOS playing more tricks on me?

Do you temp too? The clear blue tests can be tricky with PCOS because you can get multiple surges each month or surges that last longer than normal. I also have PCOS and temping really helps me to figure out what’s going on. It’s possible you didn’t ovulate and aren’t really 4dpo especially with that CM.
I have PCOS and the one thing my RE kept stressing to me about was to not trust the OPK's. They either won't detect or you're going to get false positives. I don't temp either but that's for a few reasons, the biggest is we're doing IVF so it's not needed and the second being I forget when I wake up.
I'm the wrong person to give advice but just letting you know I'm still here
Thanks, Jenni. I still don’t know what happened last month, but that’s pretty much how this whole TTC process has been this time around. I have an appointment with my doctor in January, so hopefully she’ll have some guidance or at least suggestions for moving forward.
