I was diagnosed with PCOS in April 2007 after my 3rd miscarriage within a year. I finally had a successful pregnancy and gave birth in Oct 2008. I got my cycles back in Feb. 2009. The first few were odd, shortening down from 42 days to 37,35,33,31...and after that, my cycles have been really regular, mostly 28/29 days, with the odd 27 or 31 thrown in. I have been controlling the PCOS with healthier eating habits rather than medication, and have not had problems with it basically since I gave birth.
But now I am a week late, and so frustrated! I ALWAYS have spotting for a couple days before my period starts - the lack of so much as a drop of blood was one of the first conspicuous signs of my successful pregnancy. Now, I'm not even spotting, just crampy now and then. The biggest issue I have besides being late is how OILY my skin is! holy crap! I haven't had breakouts this bad in almost a decade! My face is super oily, even my scalp is a lot more oily than normal. I took a test Friday(CD31) and it was negative, but it wasn't FMU. So I tested again Sunday(CD33) with FMU and it was negative again.
I wish I could get a straight answer one way or the other...either my period needs to start or I need a positive test. What do you think? Could I be pregnant and just not making enough HcG to get a positive test yet, or am I just having a PCOS flare-up whacked out cycle?
Ps. I will probably test again in the morning...if still negative, then every few days until one or the other happens. If I get to be 2 weeks late and still negative, then I will go see a doctor. :)
