I have PCOS and used Clomid MANY times. For me it didn't work to cause pregnancy. I have also heard PCOS can cause false positive OPK's. I think in those cases is when you begin to ovulate but that particular egg turns into a cyst and you don't release it. Does that make sense? Cycles that I had taken clomid, I would get DAYS and DAYS of positives, so I had to use OPKs as only one of my signs. Other things I relied on was ovulation pain, sensation of fertile mucus, and when I was temping I would watch that too.

I got pregnant on a natural cycle (no clomid) and sorta NTNP (I knew around when I would O). I traveled that weekend and so we DTD before I left and when I got home. I had massive O pains and some light spotting while I was gone. Apparently it worked cause I am expecting a girl in December. It took us 2 years and 2 months to get pregnant with her.

I had my son prior to being diagnosed with PCOS (I am sure I had it then too) and we weren't trying for him.
