    Hi ladies!:hiya

    Looking for some knowledge from the experienced ones here. I had read that doing an ultrasound on CD11/CD12 can help detect whether and when we ovulate...
    The thing is, i had been diagnosed with PCOS in 2005, got married 3 yrs back, and within 1 yr of marriage, my weight shot up from 60 to 72 kg!!!

    This, despite the fact that i started gymming as soon as we came here. But i wasnt watching over my diet much and to add to it, i had no job for a year. I think this worsened the hormonal issues, which in turn worsened the weight. My cycles have always been irregular (even before the weight shoot-up), around 40-45 days, thus missing 1 or 2 months in a yr.

    However, i have managed to come down to 68 kg since June, by exercise combined with light dinners etc. When i told my doc in India (in April this yr) that i would like to conceive soon, he told me i can start trying and told me to start duphaston twice a day for 10 days (day 1-10) every month 3 months before ttc. I have been on Duphaston since July, but waited a bit to ttc since i wanted to lose some weight...

    Started TTC since October, but i dont know whether/when i ovulate. my Doc in India said you could start with clomid (or similar) if you are not ovulating. The thing is, i never know if i ever had a prob with ovulation in the first place. So how to detect/confirm whether i am ovulating or not?

    Today is CD 1 for me...or CD2? (AF started 10 pm last night). Do you ladies think i should do an ultrasound just to check? When should i do that?

    Any help would be much appreciated:)

    Hi Mimosa,
    There is a series of ultrasound scans (3-5) to check if you are ovulating or not. This is called follicular study.
    They scan u starting from CD8 (or later) and scan every alternate day or something until u ovulate.
    This is an accurate study which is generally prescibed by the doctors which will tell u if u have ovulated or ur follicle has become a cyst. This is done on all medicated TTC cycles.
    Reg ur other query my gynec says even if u get ur AF at 11.30, next morn wud still be CD2.

    Thanks so much Vidyasantha12 and Aniswami81!

    Since i am currently not on any medicated cycle (except duphaston), i assume if and when i start taking any o-inducing meds, the doc will check all this for me right?
    But can this be checked whilst not on any medicated cycle, just for your own info/confirmation? Is it ok to undergo ultrasound that frequently just for checking?
    Would it prove to be expensive/harmful?
    CD 10 this month is the exact day that i'll going to india for a 10-day trip..so it doesnt seem practical to start ultrasounds here and then continue later in india. plus, i;ll mostly be staying with the inlaws so this will become too obvious.

    Do u gals think i should wait out this month, just gauging through CM on my own and do all this stuff for the following cycle?

    Haha, before ttc i was so ignorant about all these things, i didnt even have a clue that the ewcm is an indicator of ovulation. I used to wonder why do a see a slimy mucus like, and sometimes stretchy substance on my panties?:bonk
    so i did ovulate all this while too, it means:cool2:

    do you get Ovulation Prediction Kits at your place, then pls get your self a clearblue OPK and it would tell you when u ovulating at home ...it can be combined with a BBT chart ... if you coming to india you can get homecheck OP kit, also folicular study can be done even if you are not on medication just to check if you are ovulating on your own or not, the doc needs to give ur a prescription, it is the accurate way to know if u ovulating
