If its an older engine you may need to perform a leak-down test to see if the rings are wore out.
If its new keep an eye on the oil level.
This is just what I was going to say..and was always the problem for me ...the compression from the cylinders is get into the crankcase ,it has to go somewhere so it goes out the PCV but when it comes out the dip stick also it sounds like a broken ring. Do a compression check. This is how I learnd about using a ridge reemer when I built my first engine just about the same problem ,when the ring hit that ridge it snapped and I got blow by the same thing can happen with an older engine if it gets reved to high the rod streches and the top ring hits the ridge ...
