Recent breast cancer survivor, TTC at 33: confused about O
I am 33 - a recent early stage breast cancer survivor. After duly following an oncologist's recommendation to wait for 6 months post surgeries, I decided to start trying. I've never been pregnant before and, suppose, starting at 33 for the first time I may have to try hard. Only last April (2013) when I was going through all the medical issues, I found out I am highly estrogen dominant with numbers at least 4 times higher of the spectrum's max.
So I've purchased ovulation tests and started testing CD12 and on. While I had all physical symptoms (CM, mood swings, pulling in the left side of pelvic) on days 14-17, the test did not turn positive until CD18. On CD 16, I've had a light pink spotting, which concerns me since I never had this before. Also, what worries me is that O test stays positive for the 6th day already (since March 21). My menses are due in 4 days, but O test still shows positive.
I keep reading online and they state two possible reasons for such a phenomenon: (1) symptoms of PCOS; and (2) possible pregnancy
Given my BRCA+ status, I am now under a close watch by an onco OBGYN who's checking my ovaries every six months with pelvic and intravaginal sonogram. I've last had it 3 months ago and, thank God, all was normal. My periods have been always intact. So I really want to eliminate the possibility of PCOS, however do worry since my sister has had that and endometriosis stage III. She's been TTC for abotu 10 years now, but unsuccessfully.
I'd appreciate advice and guidance of more knowledgeable and experienced ladies here. I do not want to run and see my OBGYN as I am so depleted and tired of all the doctor visits in the last year. I also do feel hypochondriac with everything that has happened to me recently. I want to hope it is pregnancy, but does anyone think otherwise?
