    PCOS & Clear blue fertility monitor
    sguzman0511 posted:
    Hi everyone

    I was diagnosed with PCOS about 6-months ago as I don't have regular menstrual cycles. I was given provera for 3-months to regulate my periods I am currently on my 2nd dose of provera and I am on day 2 of my cycle. I will be taking a dose of clomid tomorrow since it will be day 3 of my cycle. I wanted to know if anyone with PCOS has tried the clear blue fertility monitor and if you have had success with it? Also if anyone on here can give me advice on what else I can do to achieve a pregnancy??

    Thank you and good luck to you all <3

    There are a number of ovulation predictor kits that work nicely, including the one that you are referring to. Your first goal will be to establish a regular predictable bleeding pattern most likely with an interval between 27 & 35 days. Once you have done this, you should expect the ovulation predictor kit to turn positive 14 days before day one of your next menstrual cycle. Your fertile window should be 3-5 days leading up to the positive ovulation predictor kit. Ideally your partner should ejaculate once within 5-7 days before the fertile window and then have intercourse at least once during the window. Pregnancy rates are higher when you time intercourse closer to the time of the positive ovulation predictor kit. Good luck!

    I think one thing you can start with is eat healthy food, reduce stress, have relax days focused on just that alone and try to excercise occassionly. Make sure you get enough sleep daily, and keep a daily journal of your different activities.Also, keep in mind of the date you ovulate and as well as, the symptoms you may experience.
