Brief Answer: HORMONAL IMBALANCE - MEPRATE CAN BE TAKEN. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. WOmen with PCOD have underlying hormonal imbalance, due to which, there is irregular menstruation, erratic ovulation and delayed periods are very common. The food aversion, tiredness, sleepiness and cramps - these are all not very specific for pregnancy. As you have already tested twice, I do not think you are pregnant. In PCOD, often ovulation is delayed and erratic, so pregnancy should also be excluded reliably by a blood HCG test / ultrasound scan. Could you tell me the date of your last menstrual period ? Also, whether you have had delayed cycles earlier also ? FOr PCOD, often progesterone is prescribed cyclically to induce menstruation on regular intervals. FOr a patient like you coming to my clinic, I would first conduct an internal check up ( per vaginum and per speculum ). Then I would perform a pelvic ultrasound scan ( to rule out pregnancy and to assess the status of the endometrium ) Mostly, the lining of the uterus ( endometrium ) is thickened, and is not shed off due to delayed periods. Then drugs like Meprate ( 10 ) twice a day for 5 days would be prescribed. After taking this medication, you would have bleeding within a week maximum. SO please follow this recommendation and have a gynecological check up . Meanwhile, there can be other reasons for a missed period - stress, anxiety, fever, illness, hypothyroidism, weight gain, exercise , ingestion of other medications etc. Make sure that these are ruled out too. All the best. Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW. Detailed Answer: The food aversion and nausea can be premenstrual also. As the urine tests are negative, you can be reasonably ( upto 97 % ) sure that there is no pregnancy Please go for a blood HCG test / pelvic ultrasound scan, it will 100 % confirm this. That will tell you reliably is pregnancy is present, and will also assess the status of the endometrium In PCOD, with delayed cycles, endometrium is thickened, and then Meprate can be taken to induce withdrawal bleed.
