Ok, well I am PCOS diagnosed, and have been irregular since I was 16. Last intercorse was atleast 6 mths ago, 2 periods non medicated in that time.. Then I did some spotting last month for less then a day, there in the morning gone in the afternoon, nothing since. Had intercorse 19 days ago, about a week later I was having lots of trouble holding food down(not coming up just naucious, comes and goes, mostly after food) the following weekend i have cold/flu symptoms which i usually tend to get the day before or of my cycle when i have it, now going on 3-4 days of tender breast and every now and then abdominal pain. I have no clue what to think but I don't want to jump to any conclusions.. I have been going from exhausted to insommnia in a flash, have had 2 days of headaches, and my moods are past crazy. Last night I could not sleep, got maybe 2 hours. I had promised my niece to go walkin at 4 am so I did so since i promised and was wracked by dry heaves not long after starting.. Literally if something would have been in my stomach it would have been in the street. A little water helped but still feeling it.. Got dizzy getting out of the shower! What to think? Any insight?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
There is possibility of having occasional ovulation, and if you had been sexually active around ovulation time, and if semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible, though PCOS is associated with irregular periods and anovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles without periodic egg release from ovary). The symptoms that you describe (spotting, nausea, flu like symptoms, tender breasts, abdominal cramps, increased tiredness, sleep disturbances, headaches, mood changes, dizziness) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. 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). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
