I have PCOS and possibly diabetes. I ovulated 1st May, and AF didn't arrive. Sore breasts, bloating, gas, CM-creamy, slight cramping that was uncomfortable but not painful, hunger, fatigue. Spotting on 20th which was very very light, dark brown and went to light pink discharge (sorry tmi), then got a little heavier and some cramping, which mostly turned out to be gas/constipation pains.

3hpt- all negative, but not surprised, I was told dye to my PCOS I may not get positive reading
Urine test@doctors office- negative
blood test 4/06/13- negative

Breasts painfully sore, still feel heavy around lower abdomen, bleeding is letting up, still have nearly all my early symptoms, but have had a level had throughout and braved myself for negative outcome..so why do I still feel pregnant? My symptoms disappeared very quickly when I went through my last miscarriage, so IM feeling confused.I have made an appointment for tomorrow lunchtime with a doctor I've only seen once before, to ask him if hr would do an ultrasound.

What if he says no? Can I push for one? I'm having difficulty with doctors, I always seem to get someone different, and its hard enough for me to grasp the details of my condition, let alone cope with ppl who don't seem to want to scratch below the surface. I'm paying a lot of money for different doctors to tell me exactly the same information, but leaving me with no answers.

I just need one doctor to say,'ok then, let's have a look' so I can move forward, whatever the outcome. I'm sick of the attitude doctors have in this town. Losing faith, and in turn, hope.

Has anyone ever had a negative blood test but turned out to be pregnant after all?

How do you think I should ask tomorrow? What would be a great way to approach the subject of an ultrasound without coming across as neurotic? Sorry for the novel, any feedback would be wonderful.

Congratulations to all the BFP!! Hope ur pregnancies are smooth and uneventful ones! Xx

You might be better off posting this in the general pregnancy forum rather than a due in group, you'll get more responses.

But just so you know, I also have PCOS and have never been told that would effect a pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests are looking for hcg hormone which PCOS has no effect on so far as I've been told. As for an ultrasound, at most you would only be about 4 - 5 weeks pregnant so an ultrasound likely wouldn't show anything anyway, even if you are pregnant. Do you know for sure that you ovulated that day? You may have ovulated late and therefore your cycle would possibly be longer than usual.

I did have a negative blood test with this pregnancy, but I've since realised that this cycle was a lot longer than normal (I ovulated about 2 weeks later than I thought I should have). We actually conceived on what should have been day 4 or 5 of my period. I had a blood test I believe the day of conception, which is why it was negative as you won't get a positive until implantation occurs as that's when you will produce hcg and be able to detect it.

As for your issues with Drs not understanding your condition, can I suggest you find yourself a really good endocrinologist as they will better understand PCOS than a GP or even a gyno will.

Hope you get the answer you want.

Is this usual for you?

I have PCOS and I get all the pregnancy symptoms in my cycle. Sore boobs, cramps, CM, nausea and just to further play with my mind I'll spot for a week or two before AF hits me full force.

Sorry to say, but the HPT's are probably correct however I'm sure your GP will fulfill a blood test request just to make sure.

You can always get your cycle monitored with a series of blood tests to see what's going on exactly.

Good luck.
