Difficult to know. You have many eggs but you do not ovulate. Its difficult for you to predict when will ovulation take place so that you can time intercourse. The straight forward plan is to check other fertility factors (sperm and fallopian tubes) and if they are ok induction of ovulation with Clomid (clomiphene) or Letrozole may yield pregnancy in many cases with low risk for twins.

My period was a day late and only has been spotting. I have pcos and am on birth control. Both pregnancy test have been negative, what could be wrong?

Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Read more...

I am on birth control and have pcos. I started with my periods 4 days back and have been on the pills regularly. How do I skip my period next mnth?

Maybe. Bcp can be taken in a continuous fashion, skipping the placebo pills, and only using them every 2-3 months to have a menses. But everyone is different, and some people can have some very irregular bleeding doing this. It works best after being on a pill the usual way for a few months, then starting an extended regimen. But if irregular bleeding sets in, it's time to take a week off then restart. Read more...
