    Cycle confusion--help!
    pcosmama posted:
    I was diagnosed with PCOS 5 years ago when TTC my daughter. A few months ago we started TTC #2 (on 1500mg metformin currently). So here's my situation--I was expecting my period today or tomorrow. I'm not certain that I ovulated, but I thought I did. Then last Friday I had some bleeding. It was enough for a tampon in the morning, but by afternoon it had stopped. I haven't had any bleeding since then (my periods usually last 3-4 days). Now I'm crampy and have sore boobs. I took a PG test this morning, and it was negative. I can't figure out what the heck is going on. If that was my period last Friday, then why am I having symptoms now? And if it wasn't my period, then what was it? I'm so confused. Any insights would be appreciated!

    Sometimes I have anovulatory bleeding. That could be what it was. I would keep testing though, in case it could have been implantation bleeding. Best of luck!
