Pregnancy & PCOS
Dear Doc,

I was diagnosed with PCOS June 2005. I was put on Glucophage, changed my diet etc. I was never overweight and have never missed a period in my life - but bloodtests & a sonar confirmed the condition. (I have also never been on the pill or any other form of contraceptive)

We have been trying for 3 months to get pregnant. My last period started 9 Sept, I usually (95% of the time) have a 30 day cycle, which means that my period was due on 8 Oct. Nothing happened. I did 2 pregnancy tests, both negative. My breasts are tender, I have light cramps, and I feel a bit bloated. (Same symptoms as if I'm just about to get my period) Could I be pregnant, or is the lack of period most probaply due to the PCOS?

If you have always had regular periods, it is probably not the PCOS. Test again in 3-4 days.
