Could I be preg? Neg hpt, pcos, on metformin, last period was 9 weeks ago w/ spotting 6 weeks ago. I now have nausea tender breasts tired and other sympt.

Could I be preg? Neg hpt, pcos, on metformin, last period was 9 weeks ago w/ spotting 6 weeks ago. I now have nausea tender breasts tired and other sympt.

It's possible...: Most home pregnancy tests are reliable, but not at the lowest levels of pregnancy hormone, which would require blood testing. If you have negative home testing over a 7-10d period you are, in all likelihood not pregnant. Metformin is not a "fertility drug", but a drug aimed at improving carbohydrate metabolism. Not all women with pco will benefit, and the drug can have GI side effects. ...Read more

Sore nipples, gas, bloating,hard uterus, achy cervix, and beyond hungry. 35 days late, had spotting at 2 weeks late. Negative ept. Can I still be preg?

Sounds like no: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Schedule a visit to have your symptoms evaluated ...Read more

Last menstrual period only lasted 4 days from 6 normaly,. the past 3-4 weeks N/V, dizzy, sore breasts cramps ,neg HPT 10dpo, can i be pregnant?

Maybe. Maybe not.: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Can sinusitis surgery affect menstrual cycle? 8 days late surgery was 9 days ago. Pretty reg, nauseas, bloated, fuller breasts. No cysts, neg pregnanc

No: That would be extremely unlikely for the surgery itself to affect it. However, surgery imposes a degree of stress on your body and that may have indirectly affected your hormones(estrogen & progesterone) involved in controlling menses. Things should normalize soon. ...Read more
