Just a question about PCOS and pregnency. Currently i am having periods every two weeks, my stomach is swollen, i get heartburn that is very mild but lasts for hours and slight nausea at times. im wondering if i could be pregnant or if it might be some other symptom of PCOS. i was diagnosed over 10 years ago and have not experienced anthing like this before. i wake up and feel like i need to eat immediately or im going to pass out or vomit. from what ive read it could also be a tumor or endometrial cancer considering the pcos aspect. i realize there is not a lot of awareness about pcos still, so any information at all would help wonders!
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms of bloating, heartburn, nausea, altered period pattern changes, appetite changes, etc could indicate pregnancy possibility. Other possibilities include hormonal derangements, thyroid abnormalities, endometrial polyps, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids etc. Report your symptoms to your treating doctor/gynecologist and go ahead with getting further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
