Ask Dr Arun
Question: My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year, the problem is that I only ovulate at the most 3-4 times a year. Every time I take a test on our ovulation kit it comes back positive even though I take the tests at different times of the month. Still the pregnancy test's come back negative. I don't know what to do anymore can you please help us?
In your case you have not written anything about your partner’s status and I take it to be normal.
You use the ovulation kit and you get a positive result
even though you take the test at different times of the month. Ideally
it should not be the case, you must get the positive result only at
the time of ovulation and that is just once a month.
The very fact that you get positive result with ovulation
kit at any time in the month suggests that there is no LH surge in
you but a constantly elevated level of LH.
These findings are suggestive of PCOS.
The science, the technology and the medicines have advanced
very much and there is a lot a fertility specialist can do for you.
