What else could it be..

This isnt a "Am I pregnant question" ( becauase obviosuly you wont know lol ) But ... I havent had a period since November ( which sometimes I do skip) took a test at my Drs office on Jan. 5 - it was negative.... I have been sooo tired and moody -- like extremely tired and moody and I have had really bad heartburn ( which I never have) but now I have been having it like everynight ..and I havent been eating anything different....

I will be taking a test later this week ( snowed in, so I have to wait until i can get to teh store) ....but Has anyone else had these symptoms and was not pregnant? I dont really have the feeling that I am -- with my last two I just knew..and I also was very sick from day 1 with both of them and I am not now ( but I know not every pregnancy is the same)

Any ideas will be helpful ^_^

  • You may be anemic, or your thyroid may not be working correctly. Ask your doctor to run some simple blood tests, and then you'll know for sure.

  • Are you on any meds that you have begun within the past 6-9 months or less? Are you stressed?
    When does the doc want to see you again if you don't get your period? If he/she didn't say anything, then you call them up and ask, or call your gynie to find out.
    I went over a year without mine and I finally went to a gynie. After a physical and internal exam turned up normal, they ran bloodwork on me and found out that one of my hormones was running high and they reviewed the meds I was on. Turned out one of them was a high dose and they had to confer with that prescribing doc to see if it could be changed. Within 3 months of it being changed I got my periods back (dang!).
    Insist on finding out, okay?

  • well I was at my gynos. when they did the pregnancy test ... I have PCOS so my period is always missing here and there... but it has been awhile that I skipped more than one month...and I have never been this tired and crabby...

    Im not on any meds at all...not stressed more than usual....I took a test today and it was a dud test !! I might go get another this weekend...

    I am thinking about calling and setting up an appt. to get my blood checked... diabeties (sp) runs strong in boht sides of my maybe that could be it? or I dont know, just see what he says
