Hi girls. My last period was Feb. 11, 2005. I have had neg. quan. blood test and also 2 neg. urine tests from the doctors. I had sore nipples (never had in my life) was very bloated and some CM. Let me give a little history. I have been off birth control for a little over a year. I have had (in the past 2 months) a thyroid test, blood pg test, urine pg test, and numerous tests on my white and red blood cells everything was normal. I have since seen a Gyn. She did a pelvic exam and said everything looked normal. I am having no pain, But when I should have started my period I thought I was going to because of how I felt. It never came. I dont feel like that anymore. Not only did my nipples hurt, but then my bbs started. I will tell you what my doc said. She said that I could have PCOS. Even though I have no signs or symptoms. She said if a woman does not have a period everything 3 months that it increases the risk of cancer because you are not shedding the lining of your uterus (like you do when you have your period). She put me on Provera for 5 days. Provera is a supplement hormone. It is supplamenting the hormone your body makes makes before your period. Your body makes this hormone for some time then it stops. When it stops this is the sign for your period to come. Then you shed the lining of your uterus. I have since finished my pills, and started my period 3 days after stopping my pills. If was not heavy, and only lasted 2 days, then I have brownish discharge. She told me that If I did not start that this because my brain is not telling my body what to do when the hormone has stopped being made. I have seen her since I had my period. I have never had anything like this happen. I turned 21 in January. Never had a problem with my period before. I was on birth contol for 3 years. I went to the doctor and she tested my hormones and they are fine. I finally started my period with the help of provera. She said to wait another 3 months and if my period does not come to take the presciption Provera again. Ladies, go see your doctor. ALL my tests are fine, and I am still not having my period. It is very confusing especially since I feel fine, and my tests are all normal. I do not have any pregnancy signs either. Its really weird. I have to wait it out and find out if I start on my own in the next 3 months. If not I take provera again. She said she cannot diagnose my with PCOS until she monitors me for a while. She never gave me an ultrasound. I dont think I need one. But this is my story. Sorry its not what alot of you want to hear. I justed wanted to share.

Well let me start off by saying if you want to get pregnant provera is not the drug to be taken it only induces a period and does not make you ovulate. I have PCOS and it can be dx by a utrans vag ultrasound. I am 23 years old only had about 4 periods a month ( I think depo did it to me, but anyway) I decided to go to a reproductive endocrinologist. They did a fertility work up( was not trying to get pregnant, just wanted my period back, so I could get preg in the future) Well hormones were normal, hsg was normal, but what they did find on the tran vag ultra sound is many small follicles(meaning i was not ovulating) that when they dx me PCOS. They also did a GTT test comes to find out my sugar was 1 point over so they gave me a Rx for Metformin. Since then I been having a period more often and Dr. said I am ovulating. So that is my story. Hope that helps. I think you sould look into someone who specailizes in the reproductive system, because they might be more understanding. Because I know It can be so frustrating, knowing that something is not right. Sorry so long. Good luck:))))))

Thanks Mari. I am not trying to get pregnant right now. But for a while I thought I actually was. As soon as my nipples start to hurt I thought I was. It was weird. She never did give me a ultasound and she said that it wasnt neccesary for me to have another Blood test. I cant wait to find out what is wrong with me.

Well I hope you get good news. But I know how you feel I always think I am especially when my b___st start hurting, but always turns out I am not. But any how you are welcome!!!

to becca- i am right in the same boat that you are, just talked to my dr today and I am to take two hpt and then start the provera if I am not pregant. I don't know why this is happening to me, I have never missed or even been late except when I was preggo with my kids. I took to test last month when i missed and they were bfp and the blood was bfn. Well he gave me a rx for the provera but I did not take it, I wanted to let my body do it on its own. Well three weeks late, I finally had a very different af. So I started my bc pills, I should have started on monday this week and have not, had s_x with hubby this morning hoping it would help me start and all I have had is a little bit of brown when I wipe, Have been wearing a pad all day and nothing on it. I am so confused and don't know what to do or think. I am so glad that I have found someone in the same boat as me. Here is my email so we can share our reports with each other if you want. I know how hard it is to not have anyone to talk to about this, my hubby will not even talk to me about it and it is hard not having anyone. [email protected]
