PCOS symptoms or Pregnancy??? I'm so confused
julz114 posted:
I'm going a little insane. I have PCOS so half the time my hormones are all over the place and occasionally my cycles have been irregular. In January i had 3 months of missed cycles so my doctor had my take progesterone to induce my cycle and increased my dosage of Metformin, since then i've been right on track with my hormones. Last month my husband and i decided we would begin trying to get pregnant and now once again my cycle is off. I'm seven days late but the last test i took on tuesday was negative. normally i would just say its good old PCOS back at work but i've been feeling definitely different; i've had cramping, my breasts are sore (that started this week) some minor nausea and my stomach has been all over the place between constipation to diarrhea, oh and i'm craving bacon (mind you i've never ever really liked bacon and at one point i was a complete vegetarian). Normally when my cycle stops due to my PCOS i don't even notice but this time its definitely noticeable, i'm just so confused since the tests are coming back negative but i definitely feel abnormal.. any ideas ladies?

Hi julz114 - have you taken another test yet? If you have and it's still negative, please do give your doctor a call to check in.
