Hmm Okay so I have some strange things going on here. I have PCOS. My ob/gyn put me on Metformin last summer. I have had absolutely flawless cycles since being on it, until now. I am about 3 weeks late. A million negative pregnancy tests later, for the past week I've had this really strange pressure in my uterus. It almost feels fatigued. I mostly have it when I'm sitting or laying down. It is constant. So much so that it keeps me up at night. It does not hurt. It is just uncomfortable. I've been getting mild menstrual cramps since my period was due. It feels like I'll be getting my period so much that I'll run to the bathroom with tampon in hand, and nothing. It almost feels like a clear period if that makes any sense. What makes me the most angry is that I made an appt with my ob/gyn Thursday. She had me take a urine test (which I knew would be negative) told me it was neg, lectured me for about 20 minutes on eating right to conceive, and tried to force a fasting glucose tolerance test on me, (which I cannot tolerate since I had gastric bypass back in 2005) So I know I'm throwing a lot of info at you guys, but what could be going on with me? Frequent urination and negative for UTI. Shooting pains in my nipples and sensitivity, come and go mild cramping, no spotting, off and on nausea mostly when I'm hungry, 3 weeks late, lower back pain, strange uterine pressure that almost feels like muscle fatigue, blue veins on my breasts, indigestion, lots of gas and not much interest in food, when I usually love to eat.



I was super angry when I left my appointment enough to make an appointment with a new doctor, cause I am so done with my current doctor. I'm worried it could be fibroids (though I have no history of that) or a cyst. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to listen to my body and its telling me you are pregnant, but the tests won't confirm. LOL. Mostly what is making me the most nervous is this uterine pressure. Has anyone ever had this??

I wish someone would respond to you! These are all very similar symptoms that I'm having. I'm still getting negative results. I have an apt. Today at te clinic but I'm sure they will get the same answer. But it's the strange pressure that is confusing me the most! Like you said, it doesn't hurt, it just is there. If I get any answers I'll get back to you. Please repost if you have an update! Good luck!

Pregnant or health problem?
Did any of you get any answer from you doctor? I am experiencing the exact symptoms and keep getting negative pregnant results and I'm past my period? A response would be helpful. Thanks.

Turns out my period was just super late. Think that was like a 70-80 day cycle. But every person is different. If all pregnancy tests were negative I'd be inclined to say its just delayed. Hope this helps!
