I was diagnosed with PCOS in January of this year.
I have a 10 year-old-son who was conceived 5 months after I got married, so I know I CAN have children! Since he was born, I hadnât had regular cycles, even skipping months at a time w/o being preggy.
After being diagnosed, my OB/GYN gave me a prescription for progesterone to get my cycle started, and Metaformin to treat the PCOS. Since February, I have had a regular cycle about 29 days long, starting on the 25th-26th of each month like clockworkâ¦ that is until July. So now Iâm two months late, and have a long list of symptoms indicating possible pregnancy: frequent urination, exhaustion, headaches, backaches, an achy full feeling in my pelvis, darkening and growth of the areolas (complete with Montgomery glands!) nausea, sensitivity to smells, food aversions of food I normally love (chocolate, Mexican food, and eggs, for example), and cravings for milk and cereal. (Which I normally like, but donât love!). Oh, and I also had what I think was implantation bleeding 2 weeks after my last period. I thought it was my period that started early, but it stopped mid morning!
I have read on different feeds that women who suffer from PCOS often times get false readings on home pregnancy tests. Iâm hoping that is true, since Iâve taken 4 different tests weekly since the middle of July and all have been negative. I do have an appt. with my OB/GYN next Tuesday, but I just wanted to see if there could be a quicker answer whilst I wait!
Just an update, had an ultrasound today, and it was negative, so apparently it was all in my head. I'm not giving up hope yet, and I'll keep you guys posted! Ultrasound techie said that she'll give the result to a radiologist, who will send the measurements of my uterus to my doc, and maybe maybe maybe the uterine wall has a thickening which might be pregnancy but not as early as I thought. Still keeping my fingers crossed, and if I'm not now, I know I will be... someday and hopefully soon!
