Im unusually tired, sleeping 10-12 hours EVERY DAY, but going to sleep is hard, dont end up sleeping until 4am!. Ive noticed im eating more, but not gaining, because I work, hard. I smell the weirdest things, like strawberries, and cocoa butter(maybe coconut) i couldnt decipher which, everything smells really strong to me, like coffee beans and perfume! i walked outside today and the air smelled like cough syrup! i hate cough syrup! bleh! my bleeding has been irregular, coming up light and brownish/pink at times, a lil red at times, and its earlier than usual, not lasting as long. Im also, kind of, constipated, ... and i have gas... that just passes without my recognition... im like whats going on????? this is gross! i pee like ALL the time and before I hardly ever used

Am I Pregnant Answer A10545
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Since the pregnancy test is negative, the chances of pregnancy seem less likely. However, other causes of irregular periods need to be looked into. It can happen because of hormonal imbalance, increased stress, eating disorder, smoking, alcohol or caffeine use and medical conditions like PCOS, fibroid, polyps and endometriosis. It makes sense to get an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis done as it not only helps in ruling out pregnancy but also facilitates in diagnosing other conditions which can cause irregular periods. P

olycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the commonest conditions causing the same. You should also get your blood sugar & HbA1c checked to rule out diabetes in view of the frequent urination which you are having. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
