Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :  
User :   hi there any help
User :   please
Doctor :   Sure , i will help , let me read your query
User :   thank you
Doctor :   Did you test the urine again in jan , if yes when was that ?
User :   after i bleed i just left it
User :   but then 2weeks after i bleed i thought i was ovulating
User :   but it was negative now no period
User :   for 20 days
User :   and now i have slight cramping but no blood
Doctor :   did you test for pregnancy again ? or is it about the ovulation test you are referring ?
User :   i tested again now cause im 20 days late
User :   now its negative
User :   and i am very confused
User :   my partner and i have sex and it is so tight
Doctor :   i would advice you o go for a blood HCG test done , that is very sensitive and reliable
User :   and my cervix is high soft and tight
Doctor :   the physical signs you are mentioning are typical for a pregnancy
Doctor :   but a positive test is a must
User :   i thought of doing that but i have to wait a month cause i have changed docs and now im just going crazee
Doctor :   you can ask for it by yourself , no need of doctor reference
User :   if i am still pregnant since january i thought it would show up by now and when i did test then i was feeling sick sore boobs everything and got postive now no period and negative test
User :   im on the medical card so i have to wait for a month they sed
User :   i had a miscarriage in august
User :   so we have been trying pretty much everyday
Doctor :   i would ask you to get a HSG this time if this pregnancy turns to be void
User :   i will do another test in two weeks it does not seem like my period will be coming at all
User :   all
User :   but my tummy feels very soft
User :   i am also very constipated
User :   do you think i am pregnant?
Doctor :   the physical signs are typical as i said before
Doctor :   but still i consider to rely on the blood test more than the signs
User :   also i ahve been very constipated for a while now went to docs they sed i should drink lots water and eat balanced meal i did but still nothing i have to wait a month to c docs
User :   i heard ppl can have pcos
Doctor :   try fiber food like oats
User :   and miss a period and not ovulate
User :   ok
User :   thanks
Doctor :   no , PCOS is a less likely possibility
User :   i dont think so either cause i have been ovulating every month and its just now that i have no period
User :   im confused cause i thought a digital test would have picked this up by now
User :   if the blood test is negative what would you suggest i do next should i test for other problems?
Doctor :   the possibilities of a missed period can be pregnancy or even a anovulatory cycle , but less likely PCOS where the conception is itself a question
User :   but with anovulatory do u get cramping and all those symtoms i described? or just no period?
Doctor :   no ,
User :   so it would just be a missed period if i did not ovulate
User :   and i have this milk like substance coming out of my breast they are bigger and darker and the a raised spots on the top of my nipple area like milk ducts i think they call it
User :   its all just so strange or maybe
Doctor :   i do consider
Doctor :   the signs are very typical
User :   but my partner and i hve been having unprotected sex almost everyday
Doctor :   as i said all your doubts will be answered if you get the blood HCG done
User :   i will do that in a months time when i get my new doctor
Doctor :   yes, meantime you can repeat the urine test with good testing kits
Doctor :   sometimes bad or expired test kits do give false results
