Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Am I pregnant? I have PCOS and I'm on metformin and having symptoms

1 answers
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.

Generally, a woman will get a true result after her missed period. You'll just have to wait for your blood test, that's the only way to know for sure.
