Hello, i was told since i have PCOS that its not a good idea for me to use the ovulation kits becuz i dont have regular cycles and it makes it harder to detect. I got off of birth control almost 3 months ago and it was way too early for me to start ovulating becuz i needed time to adjust to not having the hormones in the pill but what i dont understand is why would the ovulation test kit say yes after a week of testing and it being no??? could those tests actually give a false positive??? PLEASE ANY ADVICE WOULD POSSIBLY HELP ME!!!! THANKS

OPKs don't work for women with PCOS. If you read the directions, it states that people with hormonal imbalances, such as those with PCOS, may get false positives. I don't even bother purchasing them anymore. I make my doctor monitor me through blood work to confirm ovulation.
