PCOS and Pregnancy?
LaceMatt0727 posted:
Ok here's my problem. I have pcos. I haven't had a period since February of this year. I was curious if having polycystic could cause the pregnancy hormone to be decreased enough that it would not show up on a normal urine pregnancy test, thus giving a negative even though you are pregnant? Someone please help me on this one.

Have you been to the dr about this? I was just diagnosed with pcos a couple months ago after going to the dr because I didn't have my period for 4 months. I, for sure thought I was pregnant because we have been trying for over a year.. even though the tests were negative.. I found out that my prolactin levels in my brain are too high so it was causing me to not ovulate. So that's why I didn't have my period for so long..
good luck to you
