Hi guys! I'm 21 I have pcos. I was currently on birth control for two months end of July through mid august. My gyno said my ovaries needs a break and to help get my period right on track. The last time I had my period was September 16- 20. Its October 15th and nothing. My period has always been irregular. But since I was on the birth control I figured it would at least come this month. With this being my first month off of it. Anyways, I've been TTC for year now and September 20 - 24th was my fertile window. I had intercourse everyone of them days even on after. I know it might sound crazy but since then I've taken 8. Last Sunday was really weird I to a first response and got white line on it then a couple days got another one. Then today I took a ept and it came out faint but see able. Then for just curiosity I took and a first signal and came out negative. I want this so bad! I need some help.

Hello All, Okay, so my period always last 5-6 days, sometimes even spotting on day 7. My period came 3 days early, I had heavy bleeding for 1 day, and spotting on the 2nd day. The last possible conception date was exactly 14 days before I started bleeding. I've never had a 2 day period before. Has this ever happened to anyone else before? If so, were you pregnant? I'm so confused, I already have 3 beautiful children, but I only had spotting with them.

I'm 21 and trying to conceive. I don't know for sure what day it was when I ovulated but two Mondays ago I had two tiny little blood pieces and brown discharge but that was just that one day. I've had cramps now for 11 days in my back and lower abdomen, sore tingly nipples for 5days now, metallic taste in my mouth, excessive saliva, acne, head ache, and heartburn. I also turn red hot when I eat. Do you think I could be pregnant. I should've started my period on the 23rd and I never did. I've had neg. tests.

Hi, I'm very confused right now, so I need to ask for help. I do not want to put my age out there, but I'm just going to say I'm young. About 2/3 weeks ago, I stayed at my cousins house and he had his friend stay. Well, his friend and I decided to try a few things. I need help determining if I could possibly be pregnant. We fooled around a little bit and we started to have sex. When I was pleasuring him with my hand, my hand was getting wet, assuming it was precum. He started to stick it inside of me and when he just got the tip in, we were interrupted and had to stop. Now I've been feeling scared about maybe me being pregnant. My friends joked about it and now I'm worried. I was feeling a little nauseous last night and my stomach hasn't been feeling too good lately, and I've been having strange dreams of death and I read that its said that dreaming about death means somebody is pregnant. I just want to know what the possibilities are. Please help
