    WPP--I have PCOS.  Other than the obstacles to getting pregnant, it's really not that big of a deal.  One important thing to know is that if you keep your weight down, that can help with the symptoms. more »

    Kar--I think the issue is that having clomid in one's system messes with the accuracy of the tests.  Much like women who have gone through hormonal treatments to do IVF shouldn't do a pregnancy test " more »

    I don't remember the details, but the OPKs won't be accurate before a certain cycle day during a clomid cycle.  Your doctor can probably tell you.  I know mine advised me not to use them before a cert more »
