    Ladies who have a 21 day cycle will usually ov on CD7, so if your period was a week long then yes. How long are your cycles normally?

    Hmm it is also possible that if you have pco one of your cysts has burst, that could give a similar pain. Good luck with your investigations :)

    Oh, to be diagnosed with pco I think you need to have 12 or more follicles/cysts on at least one ovary or over 20 in total but I'm not 100% sure on that. If you didn't have any then pco would be unlikely, although it is possible for cysts to come and go in a matter of weeks.

    The other figure is the depth of your lining, this changes through your cycle.

    Probably not as in theory your progesterone level will either have dropped right off before AF or you are pregnant and it will be high. Either way I think the dates are too far out to show ov. Progesterone blood tests to show ov needs to be done 7 days before your next AF, which would be 7/8 days after ov. If you think you ovd on the 26th then you needed to have bloods on the 2nd or 3rd.

    Don't worry too much, I had to have several attempts to get mine done on the correct day! They will just give you another appointment if nothing shows.

    I was shocked because the scan I had done was originally to confirm or rule out pregnancy so when I got my results I wasn't expecting to be told I could possibly have pcos I've had a blood test done a few year ago to check hormones but the doc had forgotten why I was having it done x

    That only works if you ov on CD14. Day 21 is a misleading name for them as it is not taken on day 21 for anyone who ovs on any other days!

    I wouldn't worry, as I said if it doesn't show as you did ov much earlier (or later) then they will just arrange another appointment. I have irregular cycles and the only way I could get them done on the correct day was to do ovulation tests and then book the blood test for 8 days after I had a positive ovulation test. Good luck :)
