The only way to diagnose endometriosis is with a laparoscopy. it's a surgery where they use a scope to look inside. And if you have endometriosis lesions they use a laser to burn it off. Unfortunately there is no cure they can really only treat the symptoms and go in every so often with the laser. They can diagnose PCOS with different blood work and ultra sounds but it's also hard to diagnose. Its also treatable with different medications and ironically they say pregnancy helps it. Hope this helps! If you think you have talk to your doctor and make sure they do all the tests for it.

Thanks again for all the info. I don't want to be a pain, but I do have a few more questions, and you guys seem to know so much. Is is possible to still get pregnant with PCOS and endo? And AF is still no where in sight, so is it possible that I will ovulate if I didn't get my cycle this month? And is there anything that I can do?

Thanks again,

Teresa

you can get pg with pcos and endo but it might take some meds to help you ovulate. I am not sure but I think that you have to have af before your cycle starts over and you ovulate, but your af may be late due to the fact that you have not ovulated yet. It's hard to tell unless you chart and can find out if you ovulated already for this cycle. good luck

Hey there ladies,

Finally AF showed up this morning. I am thinking that maybe I just ovulated later since AF was longer than usual last month. But this just makes is so much harder for me. What would you ladies suggest as far as figuring out when I am going to ovulate next? I will probably do the OPK's but the question is when do I start to test since this last cycle was so long? They usually run about 32 at the longest.

Thanks,

Teresa

I have never used opks so I cant help you there but i think the test kit will have directions as to when to start testing. I started charting my temps in order to find out if I was ovulating or not. I would suggest temping and using opks to increase your chances. good luck.
