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.

So, I'm spotting

3 answers
I haven't posted here in a while... But, I need to post my issue somewhere. I've been taking Metformin for almost 5 months now. December was my last real period. For the past two weeks, I've spotted on and off. Sometimes, it's really red/light pink and sometimes, like today, it's brownish. I've bought a Pregnancy test, but I don't have any of the pregnancy symptoms except headaches, slight nausea, tiredness and a sore back. I don't have cramps, sore breasts, swelling, weight gain, peeing irregularly, etc etc. I'm really scared of taking the P. test....

The only way to know whether or not you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. Any time you are taking any kind of medication you need to know immediately if you are pregnant.
 I know, V.  Trust me, I know.However, I'm afraid because I've gotten so many negative results that it's not funny.  I don't want to take ite and it come out negative....
I know how hard that can be. But really, there's only one way to know. I've been through a few times of experiencing pregnancy symptoms and was so positive that I was pregnant. Naturally, I was disappointed when I got the negative test results. But, then I knew that the symptoms were just in my head or were caused by weird hormonal fluctuations. I know it's hard to have your hopes crushed. Believe me, I do. But if you are pregnant, you need to know.
