User :   hi
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   For past 4-5 months I have been fairly regular with my period. Though they do last long at times. I have been trying to conceive for over a year now. In Aug after an ultrasound my GP said I might have PCOS as my ovaries were slightly large. This month I was due to get my period around the 15th, however instead I have been getting a very light amount of brown discharge with a slight pink tinge. Its been a week now and still only getting this and no period. I don't have any cramps or pains, except a low back pain once during the past week which can be blamed on me sitting in front of the computer for too long Also have upset stomach(if that helps). I did an HPT on the 15th but was neg.
