Hey everyone I'm new to this forum and I was wondering if someone could help me.......I came off the birth control patch and my period was regular then i missed the next month but it came early the following month. The month after that I am now 2 days late. During those months i have experienced a little fatigue, irritability, sore breast, nausea and frequent urination, they are more prominent now. I took 2 pregnancy test and they both came out negative. Now I have alot of cramps but no period. Can someone advise me on what to do please!!!!

My last period was sept 15 and have missed my period in oct but im irregular but have been regular for the past three months. Recently I have been tired, nauseous, and spotting, No tender breasts and my stomach doesnt feel hard but it does feel slightly heavy. A couple of days ago i had a large amount of white discharge then it went to yellowish then to spotting it looks as if I had finished my period. My lower back has been hurting and i feel sore like I have been working out and sometimes i will not want to eat at all then all of a sudden ill want to eat everything. I have no money for the doctor unless i know for sure and im scared I need some advice to help me know if i might be pregnant or it could be something other then that. Please help.

Hi, I'm new here. My fiancé and I aren't really trying to conceive, but we're not not trying, if that makes any sense. I've been told my a whole group of doctors that I will never be able to get pregnant. They told me I had PCOS and would never be able to conceive. Last month our anniversary happened to fall on my most fertile day and we had sex. My period was due on October 5th and I've had nothing. It is now 4:23am October 14th. I woke up around 3:45am with pains in my lower abdomen. Not sharp pains, dull pains, but it still hurt like crazy. I took 2 hpt 3 days apart last week after my missed period but both were negative. I'm so confused about all this. This has only happened to me one other time, back in November of 2008 when I was with my now ex-husband. I had no pains or anything that time and in December my period came.
