I am lactating and I have missed a period. But I have always been irregular. Could I be pregnant? I also went thru FSH Treatments since I have PCOS. I had a miscarriage on Oct.5 and did another treatment on Nov.5 and it came out negative on the 27th. Then I got a period on Dec. 28 and have not gotten once since. I did test for LH surge on the 24th of January and it was positive which it's the first time ever being positve? What could be happening with my body?

Lack of the menstrual period is the first sign of pregnancy ... but a missed period is also one of the symptoms of PCOS. Therefore, you should perform a pregnancy test to confirm or exclude pregnancy.





Your symptoms (sterility, irregular periods, lack of periods, miscarriage, overweight) are typical for polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is an endocrine disorder wherein the hormonal axis hypothalamus-pituitary-ovaries is disturbed. LH-levels are increased and FSH-levels decreased.





The etiology of PCOS is still unknown but it is believed that the basic disorder is caused by increased levels of insulin due to insulin resistance. That’s why an anti-diabetic drug (Metformine) is also used for treatment. You can seek help by setting up an appointment with your gynecologist and request screening for PCOS.
