not sure what to do?!!
Hi, I'm new here & need some advice. I was due for my period Oct 15th & haven't had anything happen yet. My last period Sept 13th & was normal. My husband & I had intercourse on the 21st & 28th of Sept then again Oct 1st & 8th & a few more times since then. I have done heaps of hpts but they have all come back neg. I have also been to my dr & they did blood tests for my thyroid & prolactin. Both came back neg. She now wants me to take provera but I am weary of taking it right now as I have read & heard of women who have been in the same situation as me & ended up pregnant. I don't want to mess it up if I was to be pregnant as I have already had two m/c in the last year. My two periods have been normal.
As well as missed period, I also have abdominal cramping on both sides & breast tenderness similar to when I am due for my period. The cramping & tenderness comes off & on. I have had white discaharge also. Sometimes I felt nauseous & my back aches.
My dr hasn't done blood for HcG levels yet.(I have heard women getting neg results on this also but still be preg!) She says I'm not likely to be pregnant. I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovaries 11 or 12 years earlier also but a few years ago another dr told me I was ok.
I would love to hear anyones thoughts & opinons on this. Would love to be pregnant & am hopeful but don't want to set myself up for disappointment.
I read your question and I myself am not sure how to respond I would suggested an U/S and also posting your question in the TTC group those women are knowledgeable and very helpful. Good Luck and lots of babydust your way!
I think I would demand an HCG beta before starting the provera.
Thanks for the replys. I will go to the dr again & ask to be tested. I feel silly going in when she thinks I'm not pregnant but I'd rather feel silly than be wrong! I will also go post on TTC. Thanks again!
Yes, I would also ask for the blood HCG test.
