Hello.

Thanks for nice query.     

As your last menstrual period date is first July, first of all, you should rule out pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test and ultrasound, in case you had unprotected sex.

In some patients with early pregnancy, sign and symptoms mentioned by you like constant lower back ache, nauseous and hungry at the same time, sensation of getting a period without spotting, feel tired (eyes strained), stomach bloated can occur.

PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) can also be the cause of irregular or delayed periods.

The treatment you have taken for PCOD like Glucophage and for ovulation Clomiphene is correct one.

If pregnancy is ruled out, then go for complete blood and urine examination to rule out some kind of infection, which can also cause sign and symptoms enumerated by you.

It will nice on your part to consult Gynecologist for detailed examination and testing.

Hope, I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Regards.

Hello Dr Rajinder
Thanks for your feedback; I have been feeling these symptoms for approx 2 1/2 weeks now; I know not HPT's are 100% so when do you think is the best time to do one?
Or should I opt for a blood test with a doc? I have an appointment with a gynae on the 29th.

I like to excercise regularly with 90 minute Hot Yoga sessions and runs; is it ok to continue?

Awaiting your feedback

Nice to hear from you again.

You are quite right HPT (Home pregnancy tests) are not 100% sensitive. When done with a good quality kit, results are 98% correct. If you are very anxious, you can order for Serum Beta HCG test which is not specific for pregnancy.

A HPT should be done with first sample of urine in the morning. Fifteen days after missing the period can be a reasonable time to test with urine.

It is good to seek appointment with a doctor early. Ultrasound is the definitive test to rule or confirm pregnancy.

If the pregnancy is not confirmed you can continue with exercise and 90 minute hot yoga sessions and runs. Experts advise moderate exercise during the early pregnancy like short and brisk walk for 15 to 20 minutes.

Hope I have answered your question well to your satisfaction. Wish you speedy complete recovery at the earliest.
