: : I have been diagnosed with PCOS since March 2000.(But have probably had it for years before.)
: : I also have diabetes. My last hem. a1c was very good, 5.2, and since March, I have

: : and I have been religiously doing my BBT charting.
: : What I have observed is I tend to start ovulating around cd20-23. Is this normal?
: : My RE seems to feel as long as I'm ovulating at all this is a
: : good sign. Oh yes, by the way, my left ovary and fallopina tube
: : are inoperaple, so I'm only functioning with the right ovary. Could that make a
: : difference? Thanks in advance for your response.

: In a 32 day cycle one would typicall ovulate around day 18 and see a temp rise shortly after. You can double check this with bloodwork
: However, having only one tube can make a difference
: Why is your tube inoperable and what is the status of the other tube are questions that you need answers to.
: Congrats on the weight loss

I had an ectopic pregnancy in 1997. The egg was trapped in the lining of the left tube and although,
the dr tried to save it at the time, an HSG x-ray in Jan of 2000 indicated that it has since collapsed.
The right tube is "normal".
Also my left ovary is swollen, possibly due to the PCOS or the fact that I was put on clomid for 6 months
without being tested for infertlity problems.
Does this help?
infertility first back in 1999.
