Am I pregnant? I have PCOS and I'm on metformin and having symptoms
I've been on Metformin for 2 months and had a 28 day cycle last month. This month, I'm two days late so far and have the following symptoms: nausea, lower back aches, terrible breast pain, cramping in stomach and down there, tired all day, and gagging when I floss. I'm wondering if these could be symptoms of pregnancy or just my condition+medicine side effects. I took a HPT on Mon and Tues (both negative), and I'm going in for a blood test on Tues based on midwife's suggestion. I've read a number of blogs that say PCOS CAN lead to false negatives (and it was kind of early). I just am looking for more opinions and stories similar to mine. I'm also scared that I'll have another chemical pregnancy/miscarriage like I did in October.
