Well me and DH thought for sure that I was preggo but started my period...of course....so i decided today that I would try to track my cycles. I have PCOS so itis very difficult. We are trying so hard to get pregnant, we dont have any kids yet but desperately want them! does anyone here know of a website that you can track your cycles for free and that will help you predict ovulation?? Please help me ladies, I just sat here this morning balling and told my husband that I am sorry that I cant give him children and wouldnt be surprised if he left me to be with a woman who can conceive. He of course is very supportive and said that would never happened and he also got sad. I just need help trying to figure out which days i am feritle.

I went to www.babycenter.com/ovulation-calculator when we were ttc...just put in the date your last period started and how many days in your cycle and they tell you when you are most likely to conceive.

Good Luck...

I think that is the same website I used. We tried for 6 months to get pregnant and the first time I used that website I got pregnant. If only I had just started using it in the beginning. LOL Good luck.

Okay, this might be WAY tmi and TOTALLY none of my business.  But when I conceived number 2 and 4 (number 3 was a happy accident, but I mc) we dtd every other day for a month.  So I'm wondering if that would be possible for you and your dh?  Except it would be for three to five months, obviously, which might be a bit much.

BUT - if you O at all, that method is guaranteed to catch the egg! 

Are you certain that you're O'ing?  Maybe charting is a good place to start - you could figure out your luteal phase, too.  If it's less than 10 days, the egg will never implant even if you DO catch it.  (Basically, luteal phase is how long it takes from O'ing to menstruation.  Average is 13 days.)  There are meds that can help with that.  And keep your doctor in the loop!  He/she can be a GODSEND - PCOS makes getting pg difficult, but it does NOT have to be impossible.  GL!

I have PCOS and 2 beautiful children.  It was very very hard for me to get pregnant because like you my periods are erratic.  I was put on clomid which helps you to ovulate.  Talk to your doctor and see what your options are.  It is not hopeless.  I remember feeling just like you are feeling now wondering if I would ever get pregnant and stay pregnant.  I have had multiple miscarriages also.  I wish you the best of luck.
