Candace - March 14

My first day of last period was on Feb. 1. I had s_x on the 12 and 26th. I have PCOS (abnormal hormone levels) which is supposed to make it difficult to get pregnant and am on the pill to regulate it and my boyfriend did not wear a condom but pulled out (I know it still leaks c_m). I haven't been late for 3 or more years and when I was it was only a day or two. I am now two weeks late. I took a home test on March 3rd (negative) clinic urine test on March 7th (negative) doctor told me to come back for another one in 2 weeks since it may be too early. Curious so I took another home test on March 10th (negative). I still do not have my period. I have been getting headaches and slight abdominal pain on and off as if I were about to get my period but still nothing. I have no idea!!!!!!!

hi, there are 2 possibilities here. Your period can be late if you have been stressed out for a while. The other is that you may be pregnanct as the headaches and the abdominal pains are early symptoms. But as the dr. said it may be too early for the tests to show. How long have you been on the pill for?

Candace, I too, have PCOS, and had an extemely hard time not only getting pregnant, but staying that way. My first question is, are you taking the pill regularly? All the time? if you have missed a pill or two, that would screw up your system. Having PCOS makes it "hard" to conceive-but not impossible. my guess is that you've missed or forgotten to take your pill. and if your that concerned, have your doc do a blood test. Results are far more accurate, far earlier. By the way... FYI, in PCOS, the pill only 'masks' the symptoms, it does not cure the problem. This is good to know, should you choose later that you want to become pregnant! Once you go off the pill in hopes of conceiving... your PCOS will return in full swing. A great site to learn more is www.soulsysters.com. Good luck either way!

I have been on the pill for 3 years. I think I may have missed one but I can't remember. I am actually not stressing out too much. I just want to know because if I am not pregnant they want to do an ultra sound and blood tests to find out what it could be. I actually hope that I am pregnant. My abdominal pains are very faint but they are there. I thought that doctors could tell right away if you are pregnant.

Ps... PCOS is not just 'abnormal hormone levels". In fact, it is a metabolic and endocrine disorder. One of the MANY side effects, are abnormal hormone levels. My advice is, if you have PCOS, you need to do more research on it, other than relying on simple explanations from your doc.

I know a lot about PCOS. I just didn't want to get into a long explanation of it. I am on the pill to equal out my hormone levels and I know that when I go off of it to get pregnant all my symtoms of PCOS will come rushing back to greet me. I have missed a pill or two in the past and have never experience any of this before.

Alright, sorry about the health lecture then. If there is a possibility that you may be pregnant, has your doc told you to stop taking the pill? That could be the cause of your abdominal pain. All the PCOS hormonal chaos could be causing all of this for you, not neccesarily a pregnancy

My doc told me not to stop taking the pill until next Monday. That is when I go for my other test and will know for sure. If I am then I have to quit taking it (of course) but if I am not then I wouldn't have created an imbalance by stopping. I kind of wish I am preg. It has always been my dream to have a baby and when I found out that I had PCOS, I balled.

Well, I'm no doctor, but should you still be taking the pill if there's a poss you could be pregnant? Doesn't sound right to me. Also, just because you have PCOS doesn't mean you 'can't' get pregnant. I have a son, and another on the way. It has not been an easy road to motherhood, but worth it all the more. Proper diet and excersize are SO important to PCOS women! I believe whole heartedly that a good excersize regime helped my fertility and ovulation! I'm pregnant, after all! And if you really WANT to be pregnant, then why are you on the pill?

 

Candace - March 14

I am kind of scared of what the alternative is....being pregnant or something more severe.....I would rather be pregnant. I am ready for motherhood but my boyfriend is not ready for fatherhood. If I am, he will be happy and we will still be together, pregnancy is just something that we aren't planning. We would like to be married first but if it happens, it happens. When I talked to my doctor today, he wanted to see me right away because of the abdominal pain. He has scheduled me for an ultra sound to see if there is a cyst on my ovary. Thank you for listening and for the help. I appreciate it!!!

Your doc may also want to see you if the pain is localized in your abdomen because they always want to rule out ectopic pregnancies (my 5th one was!) It wouldn't surprise me if you had a cyst, since you have PCOS and all! Let me know how your appt goes! I wish you lots of luck!

Thank you. I will let you know.
