False negatives, and tips for getting pregnant with PCOS?

I’m wondering if anyone with PCOS has ever had a falsely negative pregnancy test (the type the doctor would give you, not a home pregnancy test), and also if there is anyone who has PCOS that had a difficult time getting pregnant and has advice on how to better the chances?

    Hello, my friend started taking Agnus Castus and she had severe PCOS. She fell pregnant about 7 months after taking it. They say it is one of the most important herbs for PCOS because it helps to stimulate and normalise the function of the pituitary gland, which controls the release of LH (luteinising hormone).

    Another suppliment is Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) It is one of the key herbs for the liver, which acts as your waste disposal unit,, and it is therefore essential for the treatment of PCOS. It helps to protect your liver cells against damage and to promote the healing of damaged cells, so improving the general functioning of the liver and all its detoxifying properties.

    As for the positive pregnancy tests…..I have heard OPKS are effected when you have PCOS, but not pregnancy tests.

    All the best, good luck xxx

    I have PCOS which caused irregular cycles and inconsistent ovulation. My doctor put me on Metformin and my cycles regulated and I was able to actually tell when I was ovulating (because it improved the quality of my CM) and we were able to get pregnant. I have not heard of false negatives as a result of PCOS. Best of luck to you.

    I have heard of the tests being off. I’m not sure how legitimate it is though.
    I have PCOS and have had a very difficult time conceiving. I would say most people with PCOS do, there are some who don’t though.
    As far as bettering your chances, go find a really good Ob/GYN who actually knows something about PCOS. They are few and far between. A lot of people opt for a specialist but they are expensive. I was fortunate enough to find a gyno that actually knew something about the disease.
    A lot of times they prescribe Metformin/Glucophage. This actually aids in ovulation and it was what helped me get pregnant. Unfortunately I miscarried after 10 weeks but that is another story.
    Losing weight will help, I’m still doing this. Also Red Raspberry Leaf is supposed to be really good. You can find it in most health food stores in capsules. I hate tea, but you can drink it.
    I can’t think of anything else right know. Best of luck to you. If you have questions feel free to email me!
