CONFUSION ABOUT CLOMID AND OVULATION

HELLO, AND HERES A BIT OF MY FERTILITY JOURNAL  TO HELP YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND MY MEDICAL HISTORY WHICH WILL AID IN ANSWERING MY QUESTION AND HOPEFULLY HELP ME NOT BE SO CONFUSED AND FRUSTRATED.

I HAVE HAD IRREGULAR MENSTRUAL CYCLES SINCE THE AGE OF 14-SKIPPING ONLY A FEW MONTHS AT A TIME BUT NEVER A YEAR OR MORE.  I WAD DIAGNOSED WITH PCOS BY MY REPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGIST ON AUGUST 2009 BUT MY OVARIES DO NOT LOOK LIKE GRAPEVINES, IT WAS BASED ON MY HOROMONE LEVEL RATIOS. HE ALSO FOUD A POLYP & IN OCT 2009 I HAD DAY SURGERY (HYSTEROSCOPY) TO REMOVE A POLYP FROM MY UTERUS. SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFULL AND THE POLYP WAS NOT CANCEROUS.

MAY 19-13,2010 I OVULATED ON MY 2ND ROUND OF CLOMID -ACCORDING TO THE BLOODTEST MY REPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGIST  DID ON ME (WHICH WAS MAY 27,2010)  AND THEY ALSO SAID MY PROGESTERONE LEVELS WERE GOOD.   AND TO DO HOME PREG TEST 8 DAYS FROM THAT DATE.

WELL I DID THE HOME PREG TEST  ON JUNE 3RD, & 4TH, 2010  AND IT WAS NEGATIVE,  I USED THE CLEAR BLUE EASY DIGITAL HOME PREG TEST).

BUT I HAVE NOT BEEN FEELING WELL FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS!

SOME SYMPTOMS I HAVE HAD FOR PAST FEW WEEKS (SINCE MAY INTERCOURSE):
*A FEW HEADACHES

*DULL LOW BACK PAIN

*ABDOMINAL PAIN (DULL PAIN WITH  KIND OF CONSTANT WITH A BIT OF LOWER ABDOMINAL
  CRAMPING

*UPPER STOMACH FEELS BLOATED

* MOST OF THE TIME MY WHOLE STOMACH, SIDES, AND LOW BACK (MY WHOLE MID SECTION)
    FEELS TIRED AND LIKE MUSCLE ARE TIGHT AS IF I HAVE BEEN EXERCISING BUT HAVE NOT.

*NAUSEA ON AND OFF SOMETIMES BAD BUT NO VOMITING

*CONSTANT MILKY WHITE VAGINAL DISCHARGE WITH NO ODOR, ITCHING , OR BURNING.    
   WHICH I HAVE NEVER HAD BEFORE

*I AM BIG BREASTED, BUT I HAVE BREAST SORENESS & THEY FEEL TWICE AS HEAVY

*FATIGUE-TIRED EVEN WHEN I’VE  JUST SLEPT

*FREQUENT URINATION & A LITTLE CONSTIPATION

QUESTION: SO I'M WONDERING COULD I HAVE GOTTEN A FALSE NEGATIVE?
SHOULD I DO A BLOOD PREG TEST INSTEAD?
DOES CLOMID AFFECT HOME PREG TEST RESULTS?

Hi!
I ALWAYS recommend repeating the pregnancy test. According to my best understanding of your information, the day that you took your test should have been cycle day 29, and the test should have been positive by that time, if it were going to be positive on this cycle, but I never like to rely on only one test.

In a way, its kind of unfortunate that the PMS symptoms of an ovulatory cycle are very similar to early pregnancy symptoms, so it can be very difficult to tell the two conditions apart until the period arrives.

So, to summarize, if you were my patient, I would do a blood test, but would suspect that it would probably be negative.  I have been wrong before though (I like being wrong in this type of case!)


Good luck!
