Our expert says:
It appears you have a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome as you have had a problem with regular menstruation and in addition was given Metformin. Patients with this condition have an endogenously high LH level. This high LH level can cause falsely positive results on the home ovulation test kits. Your blood tests on cycle day 21, progesterone if elevated is a more accurate assessment if ovulation is taking place. In your particular case it would be more advisable for you to monitor follicular growth by ultrasound as to ascertain when ovulation is taking place.
