I'm very confused. I'm 19 years old. I have PCOS. I got off birth control in August 2009 and since then my periods have been on time perfectly. My last period was March 15, 2010. It's now been 3 months, 1 week and 2 days since my last period and I'm still not bleeding. I've had sex a lot between the time of my last period and now but all of the pregnancy tests that I've taken have said negative. I took one 2 days after my first missed period and then 2 weeks after that. Then one on May 7th and then one on May 14th and all of them were negative. I also took a blood test on May 21st and that came back negative. My period was due again on June 7th and I spotted a little on June 7th and 8th but then it stopped. My period is due again on July 5th and if it doesn't come, that will be the fourth missed period. I've never missed a period in my life, and I've had my period since I was 11. The latest my period's ever been was about 1-2 weeks and now its about to be 10 weeks since my period was due. Right before my April period was due two months ago, I had cramps [around my lower abdomen/uterus and my sides] which felt like my period was going to come but it never did. Then it went away. But about a week before my May period was due the cramps came back and I mostly got them when I laid down on my stomach and when I sat down. That stopped in the beginning of June. I feel a lot more tired then usual and my friends tell me that my waist area have gotten wider. I feel naseous at times and I was REALLY congested the past couple of weeks [went away now]. And I know it wasn't allergies or cold because I wasn't sneezing or coughing. And my lower back has been KILLING me, especially when I start walking. The tiredness and nausea and back pains pretty much went away around the same time the cramps went away. But I don't know what to do because the tests still say negative. What should I do? Is there a possibility that I may still be pregnant? Or can it be something a lot more serious?
Well if all the blood tests came out negative then you are not pregnant. The pains you have been having are probably menstration cramps normal for when your about to get your period and when you didn't get your period those pains would go away. What I would suggest you doing is going to your doctor and tell him/her whats exactly been going on. I would also suggest that you stay healthy. The stress of not getting your period is probably making you gain weight. Go see a doctor. Take care of yourself. Good luck.
STAYING POSITIVE, HEALTHY, and IN GOOD SPIRT! I have PCOS, and my doc put my on Metformin 500 mg BID (2 a day). I use to be just like you.. I would go months without a menstral bleed and I never wanted to be on birth control because 2 reason. I was TTC and I was already overweight ( I don't like the side effects of birth control). But I would document when these cramps come, and take that information with you to see a doc, and let them know what is going on. Maybe they can put you on Provera to start you AF, and then help you get your body into a healthy "mood" that way you can get your AF. Peronsally I feel less of a women when I don't get AF. When she does come by herself, she is here for about 13-16 days. Best of Luck to you. And see a doc!
Did you happen to gain any weight in those months leading up to your last period? Weight gain will cause a delay and for some a stop in periods as well as a dramatic weight loss. Another idea, you may have developed a cyst that is causing you to stop having periods. I doubt your pregnant, because by now a blood test would be correct. I suggest to see your gyn on this as you may need to start back on birth control. I was on bc for 2 years, and took a 6 month break. I was fine until the 6th month and I was 10 days late on my period. I had to go back on it because of it.
I was like you. I was on birth control for 10ish years. I got off and the first two months went just like I thought “normal” and then it all went downhill. I didn’t have a period for 3 months and I thought I was pregnant too. I had all of the symptoms, light head, nauseas, breasts felt sore, and etc. Until I saw my OB/Gyn she did an ultra sound and blood work. They both came back positive for PCOS. Since I am ttc I am on clomid and so far it’s making me ovulate and having my periods. Just stay calm and positive and talk to your OB/GYN and tell your dr. everything you’re feeling and worried about. The more your dr. knows the easier it is to find a “cure.” Good luck!
hey. just been reading your post. im goin thru the same atm hun. blood tests have revealed that i got a high hemaglobin level. and aparently a bit of hormone that might indicate pcos. but they dont think i have as i have not got excessive weight im 8 stone. and i do not have facial hair. wich is also the symptoms. im now waiting for a scan. im confused as i came off the pill 9 months ago. 1st 4 months my periods wer fine. then started coming late. and iv now not had a period since 2nd april. im worrying to the extent that i cant sleep. as im worried that i might not be able to have kids. yet my own dr has told me that thers no way i could have pcos. and iv read that you can still concieve if you do have it. also that if you get diagnosed with pcos, always mean you have it. (confusing) im still feeling sick. headaches. sore breasts. and i got a little bit on cramp on the left. all pregnancy tests have come back negative. a friend of mine had blood tests and pregnancy tests that wer negative. yet whenb she went for a scan, she was actualy 5 months pregnant.
