I was told I have PCOS when I was 13. before i was diagnosed I didnt have a period for 3 months. After being started on birth control my periods became regular again. I stopped taking the birth control when I was 19, my periods (for the most part) have been regular. I cant pin-point the exact day im going to start but im usually never more than a week off. I've been trying to get pregnant for 2 years now, I'm starting to feel like its never going to happen. I have a doctors apt but its still a few months away. I didnt have a period in september, I'm on day two of october period now, but it's very light(so far more like spotting than a period), my nipples are sore, and ive had lower back pain, and gas(belching). Could I be pregnant? If I'm not pregnant do I even have a chance of becomming pregnant after trying for 2 years with no results??
Let me start with saying that PCOD is the most common hormonal disease in young woman these days but there have been many instances where woman have conceived successfully.PCOD needs a dedicated treatment for a longer duration and it depends on the number,size and shape of the follicles.If there is insulin resistance then that also is to be corrected.Since it is a hormonal disorder so treatment is usually birth control pills.
Now coming to the symptoms as spotting,sore nipples,back pain,gas are suggestive of pregnancy and it might be possible that you have conceived.A detailed pelvic examination and investigations would help in the diagnosis.Consider doing a Urine HPT and depending on the results kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
